There’s a reason that there’s #tacotuesdays, it’s cause they are that good! I mean, I don’t think I’ve ever met someone that doesn’t love a good taco, am I right? Tacos and Mexican-inspired dishes are one of my go-to flavor combinations. It was only a matter of time before I realized that taco seasonings with brown lentils are a perfect match! I stumbled upon it by accident one night – had some salsa left over and wanted to use it up. So this recipe was born!
The best part is that is really fast to make so it’s perfect for a quick weeknight meal. No one, including myself, wants to spend forever cooking dinner after a long day at work. Cue the brown lentils – which cook up in about 20 minutes!
This recipe would also be perfect to take to work. Instead of running to Chipotle for lunch, how about an equally tasty lentil taco bowl? You can really add whatever toppings that you like. How about a cashew sour cream? Or some thinly sliced radishes. Obviously avocado would be delicious, too. Pack it up in to go containers with the salsa and fresh herbs in a separate container.
