  • Drain off excess water.
  • Preheat oven to 300F.
  • Add walnuts onto a rimmed baking sheet and toast for 10-13 minutes, watching closely, until lightly golden and fragrant.
  • Set aside to cool for a few minutes.
  • Add 1/2-1 tablespoon of oil into a large skillet or wok.
  • Cook the onion and peppers over medium heat for about 15-20 minutes, reducing heat if necessary and stirring frequently, until translucent.
  • Add cooked lentils and toasted walnuts into a food processor and pulse until chopped (make sure to leave texture).
  • Stir or pulse in the oregano, cumin, chili powder, and salt. Stir in the oil and the water until combined.
  • Prepare the rest of your vegetable toppings and wash + dry the lettuce wraps.
