  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 tsp coconut oil

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 300F.
  • Add walnuts onto a rimmed baking sheet and toast for 10-13 minutes, watching closely, until lightly golden and fragrant.

  • 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.
