Red Lentil Tortillas

How can something so good be so simple? I do not care. These are delicious and just a little patience is required. They have all the nutrients of red lentils, but in a different form – Tortillas.

  • 1 c red lentils, rinsed and drained
  • water + 2 c water for soaking
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan salt

Combine the lentils and water in a medium bowl. Let soak for about 30 minutes. Rinse lentils. Combine the rinsed lentils and water in the bowl.Loosely cover and let stand at room temperature. This takes ab out 1-2 hours. the lentils will have absorbed most of the water and began to split.

Add the entire contents, lentils and water into a high-speed blender. Add salt. blend until the mixture is smooth and fluffy.

Heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. Make sure you to wait for the skillet to heat up. I got too impatient and ruined my first tortilla. That was a sad moment.

Pour the batter into the pan titling it to spread the batter forming a tortilla.

Cook 1 1/2 – 2 minutes, the top of the tortilla will look dry. Slide a spatula around the edges to loosen and flip the tortilla. Cook the other side until it is browned, about 1- 1 1/2 minutes. As the skillet gets hot and remains hot the tortillas take less time to make.

Transfer to a cooling rack and let the tortilla completely cool. This makes 6 tortillas, well, 5 if you tend to mess up the first one like I do.

Serve. Eat. Enjoy.

  1. I have gotta try these. Simply brilliant!

    1. Thanks Sheree. I have made these a couple of times now myself. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. i Want to try this today.
    I’m not sure what “water + 2 c of water means.”
    Will I need to soak them in more than 2 cups of water?

    1. Hi Cindy. The water is for the mini soaking and rinsing. This is the 30 minute soak. The 2 cups is for the longer soaking and you do not drain or rinse. You put it all in a blender and blend. Hope this helps clarify. Thanks for stopping by.

      1. Yes it’s does ! Thanks for such a quick reply!
        I’ll get them soaking this morning.
        Now to browse your site. I’m relatively new to plant based eating

      2. Cindy, just ping me if you have any questions. I hope you find some inspiration.

  3. Can these be stored in the fridge for a few days? Thanks!

    1. BJC absolutely and they can be frozen also. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Oh, wonderful! I’ve tried making the lentil plus rice flour dosas more than once and I was a complete failure. Perhaps keeping the flat ‘bread’ simpler will work. I’ll be trying these soon! Thanks.

    1. Roslyn let me know how it works out.

  5. Does it have to be red lentils?? Where I’m at I can find brown, yellow, and split pea .. Not red.. Thoughts??

    1. Hi Nichole. I have only used red. red tend to break apart easily. I think yellow would work similarly . Let me know how it goes. Thanks for stopping by.

  6. What would you serve these with, hummus or raita type dip of some kind? Can’t wait to try!

    1. Hi Kris. Both the hummus and raita sound great. You also could add some grilled veggies too. Thanks for stopping by.

  7. […] I brought to you the Red Lentil Tortillas and they have been a big hit. Chickpea Crepes have been on my mind lately. I used to make regular […]
