IntroductionA tasty and relatively easy replacement for meat in tacos. A tasty and relatively easy replacement for meat in tacos.
1/2 c. dry french lentils
1 c. and 1/2 c. water or broth(recipe calculated with water)
1 medium carrot, chopped
1/2 bell pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic, grated
3 slices red onion, diced
2 tsp. sazon
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
Depending on your stove, the lentils could cook faster or slower, I find it always takes longer on electric versus gas. I do all the seasonings to taste, the measurements are just a guideline.
Add the mostly cooked lentils and 1/2 cup of additional water to the sauteed vegetables. Simmer for an additional 5-10 minutes, adding up to an additional 1/2 c. of water as needed, until the lentils are just past al dente.
Serve into taco shells of your choice, or put on top of salad for taco salad.
Serving Size: Makes enough filling for 6 tacos
