Lentil version of tacos
  • 2½ cups cooked brown lentils
  • Water, oil or veggie broth to add to lentils
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (or you can make your own)
  • Taco shells, corn tortilla or flour tortillas
  • salsa
  • taco sauce
  • chopped tomato
  • chopped lettuce
  • avocado
  • Sour Cream (I used a vegan brand)
  • Cheese (I used a vegan brand of this also)
  1. Heat a bit of oil, water or veggie broth in a skillet.
  2. Add the cooked lentils to the pan.
  3. Mix taco seasoning with ½ cup water until dissolved.
  4. Add the seasoning mixture and heat on medium until the mixture boils.
  5. Add more water or broth if needed.
  6. As the mixture cooks, mash the lentils with a fork or potato masher.
  7. I like mine mashed but with some whole lentils left.
  8. While the lentils are cooking, prepare your taco toppings.
