Red Lentil Flatbread (2 ingredients)
Updated: May 14, 2021
This vegan red lentil flatbread is made with only TWO ingredients and ready in 15 minutes! It's super healthy, rich in protein, gluten-free, oil-free.
Red lentils uncooked, 1 cup or 200 g
Water, 1 + 1/4 cup or 310 ml
Salt & pepper
(Optional: 1 teaspoon coriander powder and 1/2 teaspoon turmeric)
Place the red lentils in a high-speed blender. Work in batches if needed, blend until they resemble a fine flour.
Put in a bowl, add water, salt and pepper, other spice if using any, and mix with a whisk. Let the batter sit for 2-3 minutes so the lentils can absorb some of the water and become thicker.
Heat up a frying pan and grease it slightly. Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter (5 tablespoon or a small ladle) and spread it with the back of a spoon or the ladle. Cook 2-3 minutes over medium heat, then flip over and cook 1-2 minutes on the other side.
I'm also pretty sure it'd make a great pizza crust (which I haven't tried yet). m
You can easily freeze them. Once they have cooled completely, you can place them in individual freezer bags. When you feel like eating one, allow it to defrost at room temperature and reheat it in the oven or in a pan for a few minutes.
