What else can I make with this Red Lentil Flatbread Pizza Crust batter?

I’ll let you in on a little secret: this batter can be use to make Red Lentil Tortillas, Red Lentil Chips AND Red Lentil Crackers! Pretty cool, eh?

 

How to make Red Lentil Tortillas:

  • Follow all recipe instructions up to blending the batter.

  • Heat a greased skillet over medium heat.

  • Pour red lentil batter in a thin layer to coat. Cook for 2-3 minutes or firming up.

  • Flip. Cook 2-3 minutes longer. Set aside, and continue with remaining batter. Enjoy!

 

How to make Red Lentil Chips:

  • Follow all instructions up to blending the batter.

  • Spread the batter more thinly than you would for pizza crust (1/4-1/8”). Follow remaining instructions.

  • Remove the flatbread from the oven and slice into chip shape(s) of your choice.

  • Brush the chips with oil and return to the oven. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until very firm, crisp and turning golden.

  • Let cool before serving! Enjoy.

 

 

How to make Red Lentil Crackers:

  • Follow all recipe instructions up to blending the batter.

  • Instead of spreading the batter pizza crust-thin, you’re going to spread it more thinly (1/8-1/4”).

  • Follow remaining instructions except bake for 15 minutes. Remove and score the flatbread into the cracker(s) shape of your choice. Place back in the oven and bake 5-10 minutes or until firm and turning golden.

  • Let cool completely before breaking up (along score lines) into crackers. Enjoy!

    I have been wanting to try lentil flatbread. This recipe looks great. Do you think lentil flatbread would hold up in a recipe using them like tortillas to make enchiladas?

    I’m so happy with how these turned out! Would I be able to freeze them if I made a large batch?
