Vegetarian Tacos With Lentil “meat”

It’s Taco Tuesday so what more appropriate meal to try than vegetarian tacos! The lentil “meat” in this was AMAZING. I barely could tell it wasn’t meat, and it was super filling.

Vegetarian Taco  with Lentils Recipe

Ingredients

  • Corn tortillas
  • cooking oil of some kind (I used olive, but vegetable is sometimes better)
  • 1 tomato, minced or chopped
  • 1/2 white onion, minced
  • a few olives, sliced
  • 3/4 cup lentils (I used green lentils for this recipe)
  • 1/4 cup white cooking wine
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 can refried beans
  • hot sauce of some kind ( I used sriracha)
  • a few tablespoons of greek yoghurt
  • Salsa
  • 1/4 lime
  • salt

Directions

  1. Prepare lentils by combining lentils, white wine, water and black pepper in saucepan. Bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook for 30-35 minutes until most of the water is absorbed. About halfway through cooking the lentils, stir the cumin in. When the lentils are complete, add some salt to taste.
  2. Prepare corn tortillas in a bit of hot oil
  3. prepare refried beans according to directions on can
  4. Spoon lentils into bottom of tortilla, adding toppings (olives, onion, tomato, salsa, and shredded cheese)
  5. Squeeze lime juice on top and top with hot sauce and greek yoghurt (in lieu of sour cream)
  6. Serve and enjoy!
