One Ingredient Vegan Omelette Wrap
I’m bringing you today one of my latest obsessions; I’ve been back in the kitchen, experimenting, sourcing and creating. This recipe is so quick, healthy and a must share! hope you appreciate it as much as I did.
With only ONE main ingredient this wrap is so quick to make, perfect for a weeknight dinner or snack. With its fluffy, light and pliable texture the choice of fillings and ideas are endless! Today we will be working with lentils!
Lentils are made up of over 25% protein, which makes them excellent for you. Low in calories, high in iron, folate and polyphenols (which also help to improve blood sugar levels). Having lentils each day increases levels your good HDL cholesterol and significantly reduced levels your bad LDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
Lentils are seeds so if you are sensitive to high fodmap foods such as beans, onions or garlic then this could be great for you!
So what’s the catch????……. the catch is you need to get the cooking technique and measurements right, if your not good at flipping pancakes then keep trying.
Suitable for: gluten free, vegans, plant-based, grain free, dairy free, nut free, sugar free, egg free diets.
Red lentils (1 cup)
Water (1 cup)
Salt & pepper (optional)
note: you can add in any spices / oils / herbs to the mix as you wish
Soak the lentils for a minimum of four hours. They will expand quite a bit during this process. I like to put them in a large jar of water overnight. When ready to use, rinse until the water runs clear.
Place the lentils in to a high speed blender and just cover with enough water (decide on the thickness you want here)
Blend until smooth
Pour the batter out equally into a non stick skillet and simmer on medium (cooking oil here is optional to taste)
Be patient and don’t touch it, cover with a lid and leave for 3 minutes
Uncover and release the sides carefully with a spatula, then flip as a whole, cook for a further 3 minutes
Once flipped you can then add in your fillings, and fold over exactly like an omelette
Or leave as it to create a flat wrap, once removed add in some fresh salad leaves, tomatoes, grilled tempeh, grilled aubergine, vegan cream cheese or pesto……up to you!
120grams of lentils with make 4 wraps
Enjoy the sweet nutty flavour as is or feel free to anything you like to the batter before cooking for texture and taste.
Once you master this then try out the different varieties of lentils - brown, green, puy, beluga, or yellow.
Make a bulk of them then freeze (3 months) / refrigerate (4 days max) for even easier meals. Bon Appetit !
