I’m prepared to blow your mind with Lentil Tacos! Believe it or not, these Lentil Tacos have been a huge hit around my home and are so versatile!
Lentils are packed with fiber, protein, folate, magnesium and a wonderful source of iron! Who knew something so small could be such a food powerhouse? Thanks to Trader Joe’s, I don’t have to worry about making the lentils. These steamed lentils have been the perfect replacement for ground beef in our family. If you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s, lentils are super easy to make.
To make taco seasoned lentils, all you do is add a packet of taco seasoning to the steamed lentils and mix it with the required water. Heat it up a bit until it smells good. Here’s a picture of what the lentils from Trader Joe’s look like. Don’t let the dark color on the outside of the lentils bug you, as it says on the package, this is normal.
This is a great nutritious vegetarian recipe. I would recommend serving the tacos with some guacamole or sliced avocado, along with a side of corn and Spanish rice or quinoa.
Who loves tacos as much as I do?
