Hearty and versatile 1-ingredient split pea tortillas that are grain-freeĀ  & vegan. They are oil-free, sugar-free, vegan, high fiber and high protein, too.


  • 1 cup (196 g) dried split peas (yellow or green), rinsed and drained
  • 2 and 2/3 cups (650 mL) water
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (more or less to taste)


  1. Combine the rinsed split peas and water in a medium bowl or other container; loosely cover. Let stand, at room temperature, for at least 6 hours or up to 12 hours.
  2. Do not drain split peas.
  3. Add the entire contents of bowl (soaked peas and remaining water) and optional salt to a blender. Blend on HIGH speed until completely smooth (no tiny bumps) stopping multiple timesto scrape down the sides of container (it will take 2 to 3 minutes). The batter should be very smooth. Scrape into a bowl or measuring cup.
  4. Heat a nonstick skillet (well-seasoned cast iron skillet is ideal), or a nonstick griddle, to medium heat (no hotter).
  5. Once warm, add 1/3 cup of batter to the center of the pan. Using a metal spoon, spread the batter into a 6-inch circle.
  6. Cook 2 to 3 minutes until surface of tortilla appears dry. Slide a spatula underneath and flip. Cook about 1 minute longer to brown other side. Transfer to cooling rack and cool completely.
  7. Repeat with the remaining batter.


Storage: Store the cooled tortillas in a covered container at room temperature for 1 day, the refrigerator for 2 weeks or the freezer for up to 6 months.

Tip: You can find dried split peas shelved alongside other dry beans and legumes at the supermarket.
