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.
