Crispy Lentil “Meatball” Flatbreads with Curry Mayo

You know what I love? Tinned lentils. I also love dried lentils – in fact, I have yet to meet a lentil I don’t like. Lentils, man! They’re high in protein, tasty, filling, cheap, versatile… It’s love, and I’m not ashamed. I wasn’t actually sure how this recipe was going to turn out, but I…
