  • 1 1/2 cups red lentils
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • pinch of salt


Making the Dough

  1. Mill red lentils in food processor or blender to create a fine flour; set 1/2 cup of red lentil flour aside
  2. Place 1 cup of the flour, 1/2 cup water and a pinch of salt in mixing bowl; combine until dough is formed

Rolling the Dough and Cutting the Crackers

  1. Generously flour work surface with red lentil flour set aside previously; place mound of dough ontop floured work surface
  2. Roll dough to 1/8 inch with rolling pin covered in a sleeve or over parchment paper covering dough (to avoid sticking)
  3. Cut out with 3 inch round biscuit cutter; place cut out discs on floured surface until all are ready to fry
  4. Continue to cut out discs, re-rolling dough and flouring board, until complete

Frying the Crackers

  1. Place paper towel covered plate nearby
  2. Heat skillet to medium high; melt coconut oil in pan, pouring out excess and reserve
  3. Fry 4 discs at a time; turn or flip as soon as bubbles appear (in about 30 seconds)
  4. Fry 15 more seconds or so; remove to paper towel covered plate to cool
  5. Repeat process until all crackers are fried, re-oiling the pan each time
  6. Store in air tight container, or freeze; crackers will be crisp, but do not have a "snap"
