Not long ago, one of my fav reader’s posted a recipe to make these tacos. I checked it out and could not wait for the day to try to make these vegetarian tacos myself.
Now, I kind of made up my own rules because, well, I’m just a rebel like that!
Here is a picture of the website recipe. (sorry for the flash). Please go there and print it out for a better look. She has great directions and pictures too.
These are my onhand ingredients.
I used only what I have and I have a bunch of taco seasoning, so I just used 1/4 cup of that instead of the dry seasonings. It worked great!
Also I used 2 cups of lentils and more broth. I just wanted to make up the whole bag and yes, I have lots of leftovers to freeze! Cook once, eat lots – type of thing.
So follow the basic instructions on her site and you will be fine.
I chopped up onion and garlic and tossed it in a pan with olive oil until soft.
Then I threw in the lentils for a couple of minutes (like the recipe suggests).
Oh… don’t forget the seasoning.
Then I poured in the broth.
Then covered and let simmer for around 30 minutes, plus a few for good measure.
Then toss in the salsa:
And let it go. Uncovered, until thick. Watch it. How easy is that!
Can I just say that I didn’t think my kid would like this. But JIC, I put out as many condiments and toppings as I could find.
And we went to town!
CRaZy good. I just kept piling it on. (Shhh, I am not supposed to have dairy, don’t tell)!
Come to momma!
Okay, here is the embarrassing part! We both had THREE!
Today, I took a half cup with some chips for lunch as a dip. It was awesome cold.
Not only is it healthy, it is really inexpensive. I got my lentils at the .99 cent store!
This recipe and others like it will help me get thru this Chapter 13 and I thank you Bridget for sharing with us!
Fast, easy, cheap and healthy!
And my kid loves it!
