1 and 1/2 cups (180 g) chickpea flour, sifted if lumpy
1 and 1/4 cups (140 g) blanched almond flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
(optional/variable) 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 and 3/4 cups (425 mL) water
Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Spray or grease a 9×5-inch (22.5×12.5 cm) loaf pan.
In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, chickpea flour, baking powder, and (optional) salt.
Add the water, whisking until completley combined. Immediately pour into prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes until golden brown and risen and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with only moist crumbs attached.
Transfer pan to a cooling rack and cool bread in pan for 20 minutes. Run a butter knife around edge of pan to loosen; remove bread and cool completely before slicing.
1 and 1/2 cups (300 g) uncooked brown lentils
water to cover lentils
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil (or oil of choice)
3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 cup (60 g) tapioca starch
1 tablespoon psyllium husk
2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Rinse the lentils to remove any debris and then place in a large bowl. Fill the bowl with enough water to cover the lentils by at least 1 inch (2.5 cm). Soak for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours. Drain the lentils and transfer to a blender.
Preheat oven to 400F (200C). Line a 9×5-inch (22.5 x 12.5 cm) loaf pan with parchment paper (leaving an overhang). Grease or spray exposed interior sides of pan.
Add the 1/2 cup water, oil and salt to the blender with the lentils. Process, stopping several times to scrape sides and bottom of blender, until completley smooth.
Scoop the lentil mixture into a large bowl. Stir in the tapioca starch, psyllium husk and baking powder until completely blended. Spoon batter into prepared pan, smoothing the top. Give the loaf pan a bang on countertop to release any large bubbles. Re-smooth the top, if needed.
Bake in the preheated oven for 48 to 53 minutes until golden brown and bread sounds hollow when tapped.
Remove bread from pan and cool completely on a wire rack. Slice and eat as desired!
