Here is a link to Amazon that lists lentil flour.

Never heard of lentil chips before. Wonder what they taste like..... I don't want to pay over $50 to find out!


Nearly any Indian (not Native American) grocery will have lentil flour. Some health food stores and coops also carry.

I think the price inorganic the last I looked was $3.99 for 2 pounds.  When buying at Indian grocery be careful that it is lentil flour and not chickpea flour.

C_sharp, you did notice that I was talking about the price of the chips, didn't you? Probably a waste of time looking into them anyway because all the chips I've seen have oils that are avoids for me. I do occasionally eat sweet potato/beet chips, though. They don't seem quite as oily as some and are not loaded with salt.

Some US grocery & health food stores have lentil chips then it is more like 3.99 for a few ounces.

--

I make my own lentil chips, by getting ready to cook pappadams and cutting the disks into wedges (same way you can cut up uncooked tortillas to make tortilla chips.)

Last time I bought the pappadams it was like a $1.65 for a package. Package probably had about a dozen pappadam and weighed about 7 ounces (not looking at package so weight/count may be a little off).  

I cook the wedges the same way I would cook tortilla shells.

Sounds delicious, C_Sharp! Any chips are outrageous, but if they even have a suggestion of being "healthy" the prices are insane!

Thanks, Spring.  Went there....almost placed an order since it is a diamond for me.... then hesitated because I know nothing about it or how to use it????  

Would anyone be able to share some recipes or how to incorporate it into my everyday cooking?

Lentil Flat Bread (dense not a light and fluffy bread)

Preheat oven to 350 F

Mix:

    1 1/4 cup lentil flour
    1 cup water
    pinch of salt
    

Put 1 Tablespoon olive oil on metal baking sheet with sides

Put sheet with olive oil into preheated oven for two minutes.

Slowly pour your liquid mixture into the sheet with hot oil,
and bake 15 minutes.

-->I read that if you have one of those new fangled silicone trays you can just throw the oil into the liquid mixture above and not do the oil heating step.



Spread on cookie sheet thinly

I think these would taste much better to me if there were not much more than two crusts! The crusts on muffins are always the best to me. Thanks for posting this recipe. Can't wait until I can try it! Can't have cinnamon so I will have to sub another spice or spices. Mainly, I would like to get more lentils in my diet without so much prep and without the stomach trauma going on! Sprouting is fun and interesting, but I need more ways to eat lentils.

lentils are fine for me, many type O people live in India, and eat lentils all the time, damage probably does not occur due to the wise use of ghee and spices, and not overeating.
lentil soup is doing wonders for me, red or brown lentils for evening meal, with some veg added, high protein with many nutrients and easy to digest.
also, lentil soup keeps internal environment nice and moist, and is very calming to nervous system, ensuring sound night's sleep. I no longer wake up with hypoglycaemia headache at 2 or 3am in the morning.
split mung beans good for lunch time meal as green mung resonates with green at midday ie pitta time and heart meridian time.

Lentils are neutral for O nonsecretors.

Much better price, and they claim to have only a "pinch" of salt!!

They do contain potato starch, which will not work well for a number of people.

C_Sharp, maybe I should delete that post so someone won't just read it and order before they see yours.
