Lentil Tacos

This vegan version of classic tacos uses lentils instead of ground beef, along with other flavors so good you’ll never miss the meat!



Step: 1

Combine ancho chile powder, cumin, coriander, oregano, salt, and fennel in a small bowl.

Step: 2

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add spice mixture and cook, stirring, until toasted, about 30 seconds.

Step: 3

Reduce heat to medium and add cooked lentils, tomato paste, a few splashes of water, and chipotle peppers. Cook, mashing lightly with a fork and adding water if necessary, until lentils are heated through and hold together, about 5 minutes. Season with additional salt if needed and adobo or hot sauce.

Step: 4

Lightly toast tortillas in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Spread about 1/3 cup filling down center of each tortilla. Top with lettuce, tomatoes, and cilantro. Serve with guacamole and lime wedges.
