Lentil Flatbreads are easy to make with just 3 ingredients! All you need is a blender and about 20 minutes to get the batter ready! Cook on the stove or in the oven. Gluten free, vegan, dairy free and nut free.
Start by rinsing red lentils until the water runs clear. This usually takes 3-4 rounds of rinsing.
Add the rinsed lentils to a blender or jar along with 2 cups of fresh water. Let sit for 15 minutes (up to overnight).
After 15 minutes, add the lentils and water to the blender (if not already in the blender). Blend until smooth (about 1 minute).
Let the batter sit for 15 minutes.
Add the salt (and other spices) to the batter and blend again quickly to incorporate.
Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium low or low heat. Spray with avocado oil or olive oil.
Stir the batter, use a 1/4 cup to measure out the batter and pour it into the hot skillet.
Use the back of the measuring cup to spread the batter out to a thin layer. Cook 2-3 minutes on one side.
Use a silicone or wooden spatula to flip the flatbread.
Cook 2 minutes on the other side. Cool on a wire rack.
Be sure to stir the batter each time before pouring it into the 1/4 cup measurement. The batter at the bottom can get watery vs. the thicker batter at the top. Be sure to spray the non-stick skillet each time with avocado oil or olive oil (or your choice of non-stick spray) before you add the batter. They will stick otherwise. Note that this recipe makes 10 flatbreads (using 1/4 cup measurement). You may have enough to make a small 11th flatbread! A serving size is 2 flatbread. Other flavor options
Cinnamon Raisin (or Dates) – add 2 tsp. cinnamon and 2 tbsp raisins or 2 medjool dates (pitted) and reduce the salt to 1/4 tsp. Once the lentils have been blended, add the cinnamon and raisins (or dates) and blend again, breaking down the raisins (or dates).
