How to make vegan red lentil tortillas
When you use dried lentils they need to be soften in water. You can put in water and leave the lentils overnight. They will be soft. If you haven’t time to leave them overnight but them in a bowl and let them sit for 3 hours. You do not have to cook the lentils.
I’m sure you can also cook the lentils to soften them. This usually take about an hour. If you do cook them let them cool before you take the next step.
Take a foodprocessor or powerful blender. Put the lentils and remaining water in the foodprocessor and let it blend for a couple of minutes. You wil get a salmon colored batter. Usually the top half will be foam and the remaining half is liquid. Stir the foam through the liquid.
At this point I add some salt to taste and stir the lentil batter. It should be as thick as pancake batter. Now heat a non stick pan over medium heat. Make sure your pan is not to hot. I use a little bit of oil or baking product put in a good non stick pan you can do without.
Pour the batter in the pan and let it set. Be patient and let the tortilla dry. When it is dry you can flip the tortilla and bake the other side. Keep warm in a clean kitchen towel and you are ready to serve.
