Lentil Tacos

This vegan recipe is so good even the carnivores will be asking for more.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry lentils (rinsed)
  • taco seasoning (chili powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cumin)
  • 2 oz tomato sauce
  • lettuce
  • salsa
  • guacamole
  • tortillas

Do

  1. Cook lentils in a medium sauce pan with 2 cups of water.
  2. Cook them for 15 minutes or until they are soft.
  3. If there is still water in the pan drain them.
  4. Add taco seasoning to taste and the tomato sauce.
  5. Stir and enjoy.

Serve

The tacos can be made to each family members preference. My husband and I ate ours with lettuce, lentils, guacamole, and fresh salsa. If I had been making burritos or nachos I would have made a dairy free cheeze sauce and possibly added more beans.

Before switching to a plant based diet I made these with ground beef. The lentils were not noticeable and they really helped stretch the recipe. Tacos can be messy for little hands so this is how I made them for my toddler. Spreading beans on the taco shells help the lentils to stay where they belong.

    This recipe looks so yummy! We are going to try it this week:)

  2. How much of each of the ingredients for the taco seasoning do you use? Thanks!

  3. It really depends on how spicy I want it. I don’t usually measure I just add it little by little until I get the flavor I want. You can start with 1/2 tsp onion, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper and 1 tsp chili powder. Increase each by 1/2 tsp until you get the flavor you like. I’ll try to come up with a “recipe” and post it soon. :)

  4. This was SO good
