I was trying to work on this post late last night and was having a hard time with how I wanted the pictures to look. Decided to keep it simple. This morning I got up and finished the editing, while sipping on my coffee in hopes it would inspire me in some way. It did! Or maybe it was the egg veggie mixture that inspired me. I hope you enjoy today’s recipe as Michelle and I are excited to make it again.
We know the holidays are still a good bit away –>though before we know it it will be Christmas.
What can we say we love this time of year and get excited for it every time.
We are already thinking of great finger food to have when guests are over. Or when a healthy easy appetizer recipe is needed.
Or if you are just looking for a great snack or side dish.
This recipe is perfect for all those needs!
Quick easy appetizer recipe. Homemade lentil flatbread with roasted pepper sunflower seed spread!
It has been awhile since we have done anything with lentils. So while browsing the bulk dry bins at Whole Foods a few days ago, we decided to get some lentils knowing that a recipe would pop into our heads when the time was right.
And the time was right the other day when these bite-size lentil based flatbreads were created. Of course you could eat the lentil flatbread plain like we sometimes do.
Or… you could jazz it up with a fancy spread like our roasted pepper sunflower seed spread to be exact. Excellent choice!
We have made this flatbread based out of lentils before when we were on a HUGE socca style bread kick. Oh those were the days.
We used green lentils for the recipe, you could use any lentil you like.
Take your whole lentils (about 1 cup worth of whole lentils) and place in your Vita-Mix, or any high power blender to grind into lentil flour! You could use a food processor but we find our Vita-Mix does it the best, another reason why we love that blender. Once you grind your 1 cup whole lentils it should make about 3/4 cup ground lentil flour.
Once your flatbread is done in the oven, let cool a little before removing from pan.
Can’t even tell you how amazing these recipes are! And loved them even more together. Like a match made in heaven.
Homemade gluten-free vegan lentil flatbread with roasted pepper sunflower spread.
What is not to love? You got lentils, roasted peppers, sunflower seeds!
We even added in some of our favorite spices to bring more depth into our homemade flatbread. Love smoked paprika in this recipe.
One of the easiest appetizer finger food recipe you’ll ever make. Promise. Your guest will love it.
Because who doesn’t love eating with their hands?
*this spread was inspired by our mac-nut kale pesto
We know what we will be making for our guests this holiday season!
till next time,
