Red Lentil Crackers

© 2024 |

© 2024 |

You only need a few ingredients and less than 10 minutes of preparation to make homemade lentil crackers / crisps. Your oven will do the rest for you and they are guaranteed to be crispy, and kept fresh for several days. They are naturally gluten-free, protein-rich and free of any grains. A fun and healthy way to enjoy some legumes. Feel free to experiment with other herbs and spices and have fun!

  • 140 g Red lentils
  • 1/2 tbsp Paprika powder
  • 1/2 tbsp Smoked paprika powder
  • 2 tsp Fresh rosemary, finely chopped (or 1 tsp dried rosemary)
  • 1 clove Garlic, chopped
  • Juice of a half lemon (about 1 1/2 tbsp)
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Sesame seeds for topping (optional)
  1. Place the red lentils in a large bowl. Add water until all the lentils are well covered. Let it soak in the water for 3 at least hours or overnight. Drain and rinse the lentils again.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Place the drained red lentils, spices and lemon juice in a processor. Blend until smooth.
  3. Line a baking tray with baking paper and brush the paper with a little olive oil. Spread the red lentil paste evenly on the baking tray using a spoon or spatula. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over if using. Bake in the middle of hot oven for around 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and use a sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut into squares, rectangles or triangles. Return it to the oven for a further 15 minutes or until they are nicely crispy.

Now this is totally up my alley! I use tons of red lentils. But you can cut it before baking, just make indents with a knife, and then after baking just go through them again with a knife. I actually made my usual red beans and sunflower crackers this morning. You just mix one mashed can of red beans with a few spoons of their juice, a few spoons of oil, half a cup of ground sunflowers and a cup of ground oat flakes. Some salt (or vegeta), onion and garlic powder and you spread it on the paper with a spatula and cut it and 15 minutes baking. I put some sesame in it too.
