Truth be told, these are scary, uncertain times and my hope for you all is that you’re staying safe and healthy. Whether you are stocked up on groceries or have yet to do so, I will be sharing some pantry-friendly recipes within the next few weeks in hopes that these will save you from running to the grocery store.

These wraps are filled with the creamiest, most flavorful lentils.

Lentils are first cooked in vegetable broth and bay leaves.

In a bit of oil, garlic and onion were sautéd with a pinch of salt. Then added were ground coriander seeds, whole cumin seeds, ground ginger, pinch of red pepper flakes, and ground black pepper. The mixture was then cooked for 1 minute to allow the spices to toast. Next come the lentils, that were added to the skillet. Cooked for 5 min. to allow the lentils to soak up all the aromatics and spices.

Now for the best part. Tahini was stirred into the lentils creating the most creamiest and smooth texture. Finished off with a touch more salt, chopped sun dried tomatoes, and lemon zest.

Since you may have more time in the kitchen now, I suggest pairing these creamy lentils with a homemade flour tortilla. Just a suggestion, but very emphasized.
