Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup regular lentils (tan-green), rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (or vegetable oil of choice)
  • 11/2 cups (packed) combination of cilantro, parsley, mint and/or basil
  • 1 medium green onion,end trimmed, cut into pieces
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

Instructions

  1. Combine 1 cup water and rinsed lentils in a medium bowl or other container; loosely cover. Let stand, at room temperature, for at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours (most of the water will be absorbed).
  2. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9-inch baking pan with parchment paper; spray or grease exposed sides.
  3. Do not drain lentils.
  4. Add the entire contents of bowl (soaked lentils and any remaining liquid), remaining 1 cup water, olive oil, herbs, green onion and garlic to a blender. Blend on HIGH speed until completely smooth (no tiny bumps) stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides of container.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients to the blender; blend until combined, stopping to scrape down once or twice. Spoon and spread into prepared pan, smoothing the top.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until bread is risen, appears dry on the surface, and a toothpick inserted near center of bread comes out clean.
  7. Cool bread in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Use parchment to remove bread from pan and cool completely, or serve warm. Cut into 16 squares.

Notes

Tip: An equal amount of red lentils (while or split) can be used in place of the tan-green lentils.
