Lentil Omelettes/Pancakes

#1

Post by swingaleg »

Something popped up in my Youtube suggestions about making pancakes or omelettes from red lentils ....... I've always got some in so thought I'd give it a try

It's so simple

Just put some red lentils in a bowl with two times the amount of cold water ....... leave to soak for a couple of hours. Then add some salt & pepper and blend into a paste. I just used my little electric hand blender

then put a dollop in an oiled non stick frying pan and cook like you would an egg omelette, couple of minutes each side flicking over occasionally

I think was a success .... I made a couple and ate them. They tasted great ...... surprisingly they tasted like crispy egg omelettes ........ if you let them cool they can be used as wraps or like chappatis. Lentils are very healthy, lots of fat free protein and you could add spices, herbs, curry powder.

Think I'll have a few goes at this and see if I can perfect it ........ I like the idea of eating a lot more lentils and pulses for health and economy reasons

This sounds interesting!

I like omelettes, but let's just say that on occasion, eggs don't like me :oops: Maybe the lentil version might be a safer option! :D
