Taco Tuesday?

How about taco every day.

The savory lentil filling in these protein-packed meatless tacos is so good, you’ll want to eat it with a spoon.

They’re a great option for a quick and simple nutritious weeknight meal, or have fun setting up a taco bar station by putting everything out on the counter in different bowls—taco shells, filling, lettuce, onions, diced tomatoes, avocado, salsa—and letting people build their own tacos.

Restaurant Style Taco Recipe

Feel free to customize the recipe by stirring diced roasted sweet potato, cauliflower, tofu, jackfruit, or a handful of spinach into the vegan taco meat before serving.

I haven’t tried replacing the lentils with black beans, but it should be fine as long as you adjust the water amount and allow for extra soaking and cooking time for the beans. Be sure to report back if you experiment!

    Love the idea of using lentils, beccause they are more easily digested than most other beans. Canned lentils would make this recipe even easier.

    I love that you give the nutritional values. So easy to compute for WW points and you provided those also! These sound fabulous and will be making them this week! Thank you!

    HI, Katie, I am so excited to see this recipe so soon after your new veggie burger was posted! I love your savory recipes and appreciate the simplicity yet great flavor they all have. The vegan quinoa is one of my go to meals and I love the mushroom barley soup, lentil soup, and your other veggie burger ideas, too. Your desserts are great, have made more than one of them, but as far as I am concerned you are a savory recipe rock star! Please keep them coming.:) Plan to make the veggie burgers today and these tacos will be next. Thank you!!!!
