I Tried Yellow Split Pea Flatbread

While looking around for different types of bread, i found several posts for making lentil bread and i though i would give it a try.  However, when i looked in the cupboard all i had was yellow split peas.  Nonetheless, i thought i would give it a try to see what it was like.  This has 2 basic ingredients: yellow split peas and water.  The salt is optional and you could even add some sugar if you want. 

Blended yellow split peas

Serves 4


  • Yellow split peas x 0.5 cups
  • Water x 300ml
  • Salt x a pinch (optional)


  1. Soak the split peas in the water for 4 hrs or better still overnight.
  2. Without draining, add the split peas and the water into a blender and blend until a creamy paste forms. This should take about 1 -2 minutes on high speed.
  3. Poor a thin layer into a hot frying pan.  Use the back of a tablespoon to shape it into a circle if needed. 
  4. Use the flipper to loosen from the pan and flip after about 45 seconds and heat for another 45 seconds.
  5. Take out of the pan and allow to cool on a plate.


It was not that much like bread, but was OK.  Although it is not the best bread, it was very filling.  One of the breads was a bit fatter than the others and seemed a bit more like an omelet than bread, which gave me the idea to use it to make a vegan omelet next time with some additional ingredients.
