Amy Lee Active: Australian fitness influencer shares simple one-ingredient wrap recipe using lentils

Fitness star: This is how I make deliciously healthy $1.50 wraps using just ONE ingredient

  • Amy Lee uses one cup of lentils to make the cheap dish
  • The wraps are high-protein, low-carb and gluten-free 

An Aussie fitness guru has impressed her fans with low-carb, high-protein wraps which only require one ingredient to make.

Amy Lee, from Melbourne, spent about $1.50 to put the recipe together, using just one cup of red lentils to make three homemade wraps.

The cookbook author mixed raw lentils with water, soaked them together for three hours then blended the mix to make a simple batter and cooked it on a pan.

She said the gluten-free dish is the perfect recipe to prepare at the beginning of the week as the wraps can be stored in the fridge or freezer and used as part of a meal prep plan.

Lentils have been dubbed an ‘accessible superfood’ due to their range of health benefits, low cost and wide availability.

‘You need these delicious one-ingredient wraps. They’re high-protein, gluten free and low-calorie,’ Amy said.

She instructed her followers to add one cup of raw lentils to a blender with two cups of water and soak the combination for three hours.

When the three hours is up, the ingredients should blend together easily to make a smooth batter.

The foodie said a thin layer of batter should then be poured onto a pan and cooked for a few minutes on each side.

Amy endorses a ‘sustainable approach to eating more wholefoods’, and often shares healthy and tasty treats and recipe that are high-protein, sugar-free and full of superfoods. 

She said lentils make a great ingredient because they are budget-friendly, usually costing around $5 per kilogram.

Research suggests the protein-rich ingredient can reduce the risk of cancer, heart-disease and diabetes, improve heart health, aid digestion and manage blood-sugar levels.

The fitness star said any type of lentil can be used for the recipe, and those who want added nutrients can add extra veggies such as spinach.

‘I have made them several times with different colour lentils such as green, yellow, sometimes I throw in extra spinach for more vitamins,’ she said.
