for the last year or so, in an effort to more fully live the Word of Wisdom and save money, my family has eaten more vegetarian meals. lentil tacos is one of our favorites. we eat it at least once a week. lentils have a lot of health benefits. read more about them here. they are also very inexpensive-- i get mine at wal-mart for $0.99 for a 16 oz bag. can't beat that!
i don't really measure when making this so the amounts are estimates. increase or decrease the amounts as your tastes desire.
3/4 cup of lentils (rinsed and pick out the bad ones)
1/2 medium onion diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/4 cup of taco seasoning
1-2 teaspoons of cumin
4-6 cups of water
saute garlic and onion in a little olive oil. add lentils and seasonings, stir. add water simmer until lentils are tender (adding more water as needed) about 30-40 minutes. once the lentils are cooked i prefer to mash mine a little using a potato masher. serve in a tortilla with your favorite toppings. serves 6+.
