Lentil Tacos

by Scott Bell

A few days ago we finished the last of our excellent grass-fed beef from Hoven Farms and embarked on a plant-based diet experiment. We were already eating whole foods before, so this basically meant swapping out meat with legumes and including more fruits, vegetables, and starches (with a bit of whole grains here and there).

Here are some lentil tacos we made last night:

  • 1c dried green lentils, soaked for 12h, cooked for 10-15mins
  • 2-3tbsp taco seasoning, to taste
  • 1/2c jasmine rice with chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2c frozen corn
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • white corn tortillas
  • nutritional yeast (the yellow flakey stuff), salsa, hot sauce, to taste
