Lentil Tacos


Testing some Meatless Monday recipes? This one is a great alternative to popular beef tacos.



Makes: 1 servings
Step 1
Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until tender.
1 small Onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Minced Garlic
Step 2
Add the lentils and spices; cook and stir for 1 minute. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until the lentils are tender (depending on the lentils you use, this could take longer - some may choose to soak their lentils in water for a few hours before making this recipe. I used red lentils and the time was fine for me). Uncover and cook for a few more minutes until the mixture is thickened. Mash lentils slightly.
1 cup Dried Lentils, rinsed
1 tablespoon Chili Powder
2 teaspoons Cumin
1 teaspoon Oregano
2 12 cups Chicken Broth
Step 3
Serve on bed of lettuce for taco salad, wrapped into a tortilla or on taco shells with toppings as desired.
Guacamole, optional
Plain Greek Yogurt, optional
Cheese, optional
Salsa, optional
Taco Shells, optional
whole wheat tortillas, optional
Tomato, chopped, optional
Lettuce, optional
