Lentil Tacos

May 5, 2015

These were good. You wouldn’t mistake them for beef tacos, but they are definitely lighter and still tasty.

lentil tacos

1 tsp oil

1 cup  onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, minced

1 Tbsp tomato paste

1 cup dried lentils, picked over and rinsed

1 Tbsp chili powder

1-2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp dried oregano

2 1/2 cups vegetable or chicken broth

To serve:

tortillas

salsa

shredded lettuce

chopped tomatoes

lime wedges

guacamole or chopped avocado

shredded cheddar (optional)

sour cream (optional)

Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet. Sauté the onion until softened and starting to brown. Add the garlic, tomato paste and spices and cook for about 30 seconds. Add the lentils and cook for a minute. Add the broth and bring to a simmer. Cover, lower the heat, and cook until lentils are tender, about 30 min, stirring occasionally. Serve with your favorite taco toppings.
