Everyone should know how to make red lentil flatbread because it’s just so good and easy to make.

Not to mention it’s made with only 2 ingredients and you guys know how much I love 2-ingredient recipes.

The first 2-ingredient recipe I made was for Vegan Sweet Potato Tortillas which is my most popular recipe of my blog so I’m guessing you like these types of recipes too 🙂

Easy and Gluten-Free Flatbread

As all 2-ingredient recipes, this lentil flatbread is very easy to make. It’s also gluten-free and oil-free since it’s only made with red lentils and water.

All you have to do is blend lentils into flour, add water, combine and let the batter thicken for 5 minutes. Then, pour 1/3 cup of the batter in a hot pan and cook 2-3 minutes on one side and 1-2 minutes on the other side. If you use 1/3 cup of batter for one flatbread, you’ll be able to make 5.

How to Make Red Lentil Flour

To make red lentil flour, all you have to do is place uncooked red lentils in a high-speed blender and blend until they resemble a fine flour.

Yep, that’s it!

Please note that if you have a low-cost blender or food processor, it might not be powerful enough to turn lentils into flour. I’ve been using the Tribest Personal Blender ever since I went vegan in 2014 and I LOVE it. It takes me approximately 10 seconds to make lentil flour or any type of flour.

Does This Flatbread Contain Only 2 Ingredients?


These lentil flatbreads are only made with red lentils and water. So, technically they only contain one ingredient but naming this recipe “1-Ingredient Lentil Flatbread” seemed a bit weird to me for some reason.

Can I Freeze These Flatbreads?

Yes, you can easily freeze them. Cook the flatbreads like normal, allow them to cool completely and place them in individual freezer bags. The day you want to eat one, allow it to defrost at room temperature and reheat it in the oven for 5 minutes.

You can also eat these flatbreads cold with guacamole. Yum!

Vegan Red Lentil Flatbread | 2 Ingredients

Vegan Red Lentil Flatbread | 2 Ingredients

Yield: 5
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Vegan Red Lentil Flatbread made with only 2 ingredients and ready in 15 minutes! This lentil flatbread is easy to make, gluten-free, oil-free and delicious. It’s great as a pizza crust!


  • 1 cup red lentils, uncooked (200 g)
  • 1 + 1/4 cup water (310 ml)
  • salt & pepper (optional)


  1. Place the red lentils in a high-speed blender. Working in batches if needed, blend until they resemble a fine flour.
  2. Transfer to a bowl, add water, salt and pepper if using and combine with a whisk. Let the batter sit for 2-3 minutes so the lentils absorb some of the water and it becomes thicker.
  3. Heat up a frying pan and grease it slightly. Pour 1/3 cup of the batter and spread it with the back of a spoon. Cook 2-3 minutes over medium heat, then flip over and cook 1-2 minutes on the other side.

    Really excited to make these! I just wanted to double check when you say uncooked lentils do you mean dried ones or ones that have been presoaked or in a tin? Thanks.

    • May 4, 2019 / 5:05 pm

      Hi Louise, when I say uncooked lentils I mean dried ones 🙂 You don’t need to soak them.
      I hope you will like these flatbreads!

    Oh my word – theses are tremendous! I just made them for my dinner – super quick, easy, vegan and delicious! I’m currently on WeightWatchers and these are technically a “zero point” food! So I split the mix between myself and partner and we had four good sized ones each. So filling! I made a quick mushroom sauce for them too. I wish I’d taken a photo! The great thing is you can flavour the lentil base with what ever you like! Thank you so much Nolwenn! These will now be a regular in our household! 🙂 xxx

      Wow, I’m so glad to hear that, Ali! Mushroom sauce sounds delicious 🙂
      I hope you’ll take a photo next time!
      Have a nice day,

    Was so excited to try this recipe, but when I did the batter just stuck to the pan and broke into uncooked pieces when I flipped it. I tried to fry it once with coconut oil and another batch with olive oil and got the same result. It might be the type of pan. Any suggestions?

    • June 7, 2019 / 8:21 am

      Sorry to hear that, Samantha! Did you use a non-stick pan? The type of pan you use will definitely affect the end result.
      I have included the link to great non-stick frying pans in the Recommended Products section of the recipe.
      I hope this helps!

    Can I use different lentils (green/brown) or does it need to be red? TIA!

    • June 8, 2019 / 2:05 pm

      This recipe may work with green or brown lentils too, but I haven’t tried it myself so I can’t tell you for sure.
      Let me know how it turned out for you if you try it 🙂

        Thank you, will try! Also would this work using a waffle maker? I don’t have a non-stick pan and afraid it would stick but I do have a non-stick waffle maker.

        • June 17, 2019 / 7:26 am

          Yes, I’m sure it would work with a waffle maker too 🙂
          Let me know how the flatbread turned out!

            I tried with green ones. I had to season them a lot so it won’t taste like I’m chewing a piece of wood lol, but the proportions of the recipe were the same. My husband loved it, and he’s a very picky eater. Thank you so much for this recipe 🙂

          • November 15, 2019 / 2:02 pm

            Thanks for your feedback, Doris! I’m glad to hear that 🙂

    Can you also use red lentils that have already been soaked/cooked? I have a bunch that were like this that I had frozen, now thawed, and looking for ways to use up.

    • August 31, 2019 / 5:47 pm

      Hi Rachel, thank you for your comment!
      Unfortunately, I don’t think this would work with soaked/cooked lentils. You really want red lentil flour here.
      But if you’re still looking for a way to use up your soaked/cooked lentils, check out these two recipes:
      High-Protein Vegan Mac and Cheese: the vegan “cheese” sauce is made with red lentils and it’s so delicious!
      Oven-Baked Potato Fries with Lentil Hummus: since your lentils are already cooked, skip step 1 of the hummus method. Enjoy!

    Do you think you could bake this?? I also don’t have a non stick frying pan.

    • October 18, 2019 / 4:18 pm

      Hi Louise, I haven’t tried baking this so I’m not sure about the final result. Do let me know if you try it so I can update the recipe notes for other readers 🙂
