Red lentil waffles

So waffel day was the other day, inspired of that I felt like having breakfast-waffles. No grains and gluten, no egg and no sugar. This are also totally vegan.

Thx to my grass allergy using chickpea-flour is out of the question. But I figured red lentils kind of works in the same way. Truly it does, I just have not seen it made into a flour yet. Did you know that lentils are generally low in anti-nutrients? That just mean you don’t have to soak them as long as you do with beans and peas. 8 hours should do it. It is a great source of manganese, folate, copper, iron, protein and fiber. They are low in carbs, 20 grams pr 100 grams of cooked lentils. So even on a Keto diet you can easily get away with hooking up with some delish cooked lentils.

What you need for 8 waffles

  • 200 g of dried organic red lentils
  • 1 cup of water
  • 0,5 teaspoon cardamom
  • 0,5 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon
  • 0,3 teaspoon dried ginger
  • 0,5 teaspoon turmeric
  • a pinch of black pepper
  • a pinch of salt

Pre-soak the lentils. I just leave them overnight, then the morning I rinse them in cold water. Then add everything to a mixer and blend. Easypeasy. Fry. Eat. Enjoy ❤

lazy cooking is my favorite kind of cooking ❤
