To make the tortillas - Rinse the lentils and place them in a bowl with 2 cups water. Let soak 4 hours. When ready, transfer to a blender with the tapioca flour. Mix until smooth, ~1 minute.


Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add ~1/4 - 1/3 cup of the lentil mixture. Rotate the pan to create a circular shape. Tip: I find making mini wraps, a little larger than the palm of your hand, works best!


Let the mixture cook 2 - 3 minutes until bubbling and golden brown. Use a spatula to flip the tortilla and cook another 1 - 2 minutes. Once both sides are cooked through and slightly browned, transfer to a plate.


Continue the process until all the mixture is used.
