Vegetarian Lentil Tacos

Found this sitting in drafts.  Silliness.  Posting it. :)

This idea came from a post over here at Greatist.  I just don't want to have to sort through a major essay to find the recipe. No big woop.

Lentil Tacos

Preparing your Lentils:

Make sure to sort the Lentils and rinse them like you would ANY bean or legume prior to cooking.  You need to make sure there are no rocks or dirt in there!



1 cup dried lentils3/4 cup diced fresh tomatoes OR 6oz of diced canned tomatoes.1 packet of taco seasoning (Yes. I'm lazy)
Butter or coconut oil.


What do YOU eat on Tacos?
We like Spinach instead of Shredded lettuce
Diced tomatoes
shredded cheese
Plain Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream


  1. Cook lentils
  2. In a medium-sized pot or large frying pan, sauté the garlic with olive oil for 2 to 3 minutes, until tender, over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the tomatoes and spices. Cook until tomatoes start to soften, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add the lentils and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, until the lentils have really absorbed all the flavors. Add extra spices as necessary.
  5. Serve on corn or whole wheat tortillas and top with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, shredded cheese, and guacamole.
