Lentil Tacos
Yields: 6 servings
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 cup dried lentils, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2½ cups vegetable broth
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes with chiles, drained
  • ½ cup salsa, plus additional for topping
  • 12 taco shells
  • Toppings: lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream
  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until softened (5 to 7 minutes). Add garlic and saute for 1 minute. Stir in lentils, chili powder, cumin and oregano and cook for 1 minute. Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cover for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the broth has evaporated and the lentils are tender.
  2. Uncover and cook for an additional 10 minutes, until the mixture has thickened. Stir in tomatoes and salsa.
  3. Pour lentil mixture into each taco shell and top with your favorite toppings.
