  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. In a medium sauce pan, boil 2 cups of water, then add the lentils. Cook (covered) for about 10 minutes over low heat until the water is absorbed.
  3. In a large food processor, add the lentils, onion, peppers, herbs, lemon juice, and spices. Blend until smooth, and then add the chickpea flour and arrowroot.
  4. In a 10-12in cast iron skillet (mine is 10.25in), pour in the lentil mixture and smooth out evenly.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool completely before slicing and serving.
