Lentil Wrap Recipe

This lentil wrap recipe is as easy as can be to create your high protein, gluten-free wraps or tortillas. At first, I was a bit skeptical of trying these out because well….lentils? I am so glad I tried them because they are so soft and different from a typical wrap or tortilla. I would describe their texture to be closer to that of crepes. 

I would recommend these lentil tortillas to anyone that is looking to get more protein and fiber into their diet. They are perfect for those with diabetes, high cholesterol, and metabolic syndrome. Each wrap can contain between 8-12 grams of protein depending on how big you make it. Use them for any kind of taco, Mediterranean wrap, and more!

Lentil Wrap Recipe Ingredients

  • Red Lentils: Red lentils are the best kind to use for this recipe as they are softer and easier to blend. However, I have heard you can also use green lentils but I have yet to try it myself! I found a recipe for you if you’re interested in reading more about it.
  • Vegetable broth: I use vegetable broth to add more flavor to these wraps but you can also use water and a teaspoon of salt. However, if you want to make them into a dessert or sweet wrap, avoid using salt and add some sugar or leave it out completely.

Make Lentil Wraps in just 3 steps

  1. Soak lentils in vegetable broth for 3 hours or more
  2. Blend in a high-speed blender.
  3. Pan fry!

It’s so easy to make these nutritious lentil wraps that there is no excuse not to. This lentil wrap recipe makes about 16 wraps in total. They are freezer-friendly and can stay refrigerated for up to 4 days. They are also very versatile as you can make them savory or sweet. 

  • Sweet: Avoid vegetable broth and use water instead. Do not add salt. Add 1 tbsp sugar instead or avoid adding anything at all. Make them as you would a crepe, I would recommend adding Greek yogurt, berries, maple syrup, chocolate drizzles, or nut butter. 
  • Savory: Use vegetable broth or salt + water for savory wraps. You can also add even more flavor by adding spices such as chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and more! If you see my photos closely, I added chili powder and a few other spices to about half of the wraps which appear to be a darker color.

Stuff These Wraps with:

Savory Shredded Tofu

Shredded King Oyster Mushroom Meat

Mexican Potatoes

Rajas con Crema

    I soaked the red light those overnight and then made as directed and they had such a weird taste and smell. Are they supposed to be neutral tasting?

      Hi Erica, I’m sorry to hear that! Let me try and help figure this out:
      1) were the lentils recently bought or laying in the pantry for a while?
      2) I typically do not soak overnight but in hot water for an hour or so but I don’t see how soaking them overnight would change the taste and texture?
      3) they should have a very mild flavor and not much of a smell!
