Lentil Soft Tacos

This recipe came from my friend Bethany.  She actually brought me dinner ALL PREPARED to share while we visited and watched our kids play.  What a friend!  This is perfect for when creativity has run dry and I need something "safe" for dinner.


Lentil Soft Tacos

1/2 lb (or about 1 1/8 c if using bulk) dry brown lentils
diced tomatoes
chopped lettuce
diced avocado
diced black olives
veggy sour cream
vegan cheese (optional- I prefer to not by this every trip to the store to keep within my budget)
tortillas or taco shells
taco seasoning

Cook lentils according to directions on bag or read on: Rinse and then add to pan in a ratio of lentils to water 1:2.  Simmer for 15-45 mins depending on the age of the lentils.  Once they are soft, but not mush, drain if necessary.  Add taco seasoning to taste.

Use lentils as you would ground beef in soft tacos.  Fill the soft tacos with all the above yumminess and ENJOY!
