Easy vegetarian lentil tacos that are topped with a fresh, spring radish salsa.


Scale

Ingredients

Taco Filling

  • 1 cup black lentils
  • 3 cups water/vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon Coriander Powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Powder
  • Salt (added at end)
  • 1 to 2 cups shredded or baby greens
  • 8 8″ corn tortillas
  • 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)

Instructions

  1. Prepare radish salsa according to directions, set aside.
  2. In a sauce pan, combine ingredients for the taco filling, without the salt. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and let cook until lentils have absorbed almost all of the liquid and are tender, 25 to 28 minutes.
  3. Heat tortillas, either in a damp towel in a warm 200˚ F oven or use a gas oven burner to lightly char the tortillas. Assemble the tacos with a handful of greens, 1/4 cup of the lentil filling, 1/4 cup radish salsa, and a sprinkle of feta cheese.
