Ingredients

  • 2/3 c . red lentils , soaked in 3/4 cup water for 1-2 hours (they should plump up fairly quick)
  • 1/2 c . water
  • 1/2 t . sea salt
  • 2 T . oil (coconut and olive work great)
  • OPTIONAL: I like to use a variety of spices in here , including curry, cumin, garlic powder, and turmeric. Not too much of any, as I like the flavor of the bread to shine through.

Instructions

  • Be sure to follow the above steps for soaking the lentils.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Rinse and drain the lentils.
  • Process the lentils with the 1/2 cup water, salt, and any spices you like for at least 60-90 seconds (the resulting batter should be smooth).
  • Prepare an 8 or 9-inch cake pan for the batter by spraying the pan with a light layer of oil.
  • Place a fitted sheet of parchment paper into the pan.
  • Pour the two tablespoons of oil atop the parchment paper.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake the bread for 20-25 minutes, until firm to the touch and top is cracked a bit.
