Vegan Spicy Lentil Wrap [TJ’s Dupe]


Scale

Ingredients

Base

  • 1/4 cup yellow onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • .5 cup of red lentils
  • 1.25 cups of water
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • 1/2 green onion
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp chili garlic sauce
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Sauce

  • 4 tbs of tahini
  • 4 tsp of lemon juice
  • 2 tsp of dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of syrup
  • 1/4 tsp of pepper
  • 1/2 cup of water

Wrap

  • 5 sheets of lavash bread
  • 2 cups of shredded cabbage
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • Optional: shallots, green onions, jalapeños

Instructions

  1. In a large pot, add finely diced onions and garlic with a splash of water. Cook until translucent on medium heat for 5 minutes.

  2. Rinse your lentils in cold water and strain the water out. Get all that dust off.

  3. Add the lentils and all other ingredients in the base: water, green onion, cumin, parsley, lemon juice, chili garlic sauce, salt, and pepper.

  4. Bring to boil, lower the heat, cover and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed. This will be about 10 minutes for split red lentils or 15-20 minutes for whole ones. The lentils should be softer and falling apart more than regular lentil preparation.

  5. While the lentils cook, mix up the sauce ingredients with a whisk or fork: tahini, lemon juice, dried parsley, salt, pepper, syrup, and water.

  6. After the water is absorbed, get a potato masher or flat spoon and mash it up. We want it close to a paste with some chunks remaining. If you have time, put it in the fridge to solidify for 30 minutes. If not, you can move on.

  7. Grab your lavash and put 1/3 of a cup of the mixture on the flatbread at the front and smooth evenly across in a 2-3 inch section. Lay your spinach, cabbage, and any other elements you desire next to it. You should leave around a third of the end empty. Roll starting at the lentils away from you and end with the empty space. Dip into the sauce and enjoy!

  8. These can be stored pre-rolled in the fridge for up to four days.
