Lentil Tacos

Ingredients:Lentil Tacos
1 cup lentils, uncooked
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 green pepper
2 1/4 cups vegetable broth
4 teaspoons minced onion (dried)
4 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 Teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions:
In a pan saute the onion, garlic and green pepper unlike soft and onions translucent. In a mixing bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix. Once the onions are done, add the dry mix and lentils. Once the mixture is combined add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook for 30 minutes. When the lentils are done cooking transfer the mixture to a food processor and pulse a few times.

Serve in corn tortillas with lettuce (or cabbage), pico de Gallo or your favorite toppings. I made some low fat vegan nacho cheese (from Happy Herbivore) as well as a chipotle nayonaise sauce.

Notes: This was the first time I made lentil tacos, but not the first time cooking an eating lentils. After some discussion with other cooks and individuals who eat a plant based diet, this was the recipe I came up with. Looking back on the recipe, it was recommended to use mushrooms and/or salsa in the mix.
