This is a favorite in my house.  Prep all the fixings for the tacos ahead of time to get dinner on the table quickly.  Also, try this in a slow cooker.  Just saute the onion and garlic first and add it to slow cooker with the water and lentils.  Cook on high for 4 hours.   



2 cups dried green lentils
1 red onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. sea salt 
4 cups water or veggie broth

Spice Blend:

Mix together and set aside.
2 Tbs. chili powder
1 Tbs. ground cumin
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika

1 tsp. groimd coriander


In a pot, saute the onions and garlic and add a pinch of salt.

When the veggies are soft, stir in the lentils, and then pour in the liquid.

Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 30-40 minutes.

Once all the liquid is absorbed, add in the seasoning and combine.
Now place a few spoonfuls into taco shells, add some lettuce, tomatoes and maybe a little cashew sour cream or potato cheese and enjoy.
