My apologies the pic is not the best but I assure you this is worth a go, it will be added to our favorites binder.
I got this recipe from Eat at home
Here is the original recipe with notes of the variations I made.
- Linsen TacosIngredients:1 cup lentils1 onion diced1 clove garlic minced1 tbs. Chili powder2 tsp. Cumin1 tsp. Oregano2.5 cups chicken broth1 cup salsaa bit of oiltaco shellstoppings: shredded lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, sour cream
Rinse the lentils and drain them. In a large skillet, saute the onion and garlic together. Add the lentils and spices cook for a minute. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes. Uncover and cook a few more minutes to thicken. Add the salsa.
I used one can of precooked lentils. I also added diced red bell pepper as well as ground dried red pepper flakes. I still used the same amount of chicken stock.
I served mine with tortillas, mexican rice, cheese, salsa, and lettuce. The cumin really makes it pop and gives it that taco belly taste (yes I just said taco belly deal with it, ha)
