Lentil Tacos

Lentil Tacos

Here’s a fun and healthy twist on Mexican Tacos. It has all the same toppings, but instead of meat, I use lentils. This is good if your vegetarian, or if you just need a meatless dish.

Here’s what I did!



1 onion, sliced

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp of my homemade taco seasoning

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/8 tsp ground pepper

1 cup dried green (puy) lentils, rinsed 

2 cups chicken stock or water (or vegetable stock)

Half of a 28oz can of whole tomatoes with liquid, crushing them with your hands.

Hard (or soft) taco shells.

Toppings: Shredded Cheese, sour cream/plain yogurt, guacamole.


1. In a pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and   saute until  softened, about 5 minutes. Next, add the garlic. and cook for about 1 min. 

2. Add the taco seasoning, salt, pepper and lentils. Stir for 1 minute.

3. Add the stock and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 20 minutes, until lentils are tender and its not too liquidy.

4. Place lentil filling in tacos, add your desired toppings and  enjoy!
