    Sarah_Jayne's Note:

    I am really trying to eat less meat these days. I was looking for something quick to make but without bouncing back to cooking meat. I looked around at what I had in my cupboards and fridge and came up with these. We enjoyed the way they turned out and will for sure have them again. I suspect this would make a nice tortilla filling too.

    1. 1
      Heat oil in a large pan over a medium heat.
    2. 2
      Add in the shredded carrots, zucchini, chopped onions and the garlic powder.
    3. 3
      Stir for a minute two before reducing the heat and letting them sweat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    4. 4
      Add the lentils, mushrooms and fajitas seasoning and cooking, stirring often, over medium heat for another five minutes.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile, put the taco shells in the oven to cook through. The ones that I buy take about 5 minutes so this can be done while the lentils and mushrooms are cooking down.
    6. 6
      Stir the refried beans into the vegetable and lentil mixture until everything is combined and the beans are just warmed through.
    7. 7
      Spoon the lentil and bean mixture into the taco shells and top with shredded cheese.
    8. 8
      Add any of the other toppings you may enjoy and eat as you would a 'normal' taco.

      Wonderful variation on tacos! Messy and delicious, just as they should be :) I served with all of the optional toppings, including a homemade guacamole I whipped up while the lentil mixture was warming up on the stove. Thanks for sharing!

      These sounded interesting as I, too, am trying to eat less meat. When I was done, though, I felt that the mixture needed more flavor so I shook some more taco seasoning in there. That made it taste a lot better in my opinion. And when I added sharp cheddar cheese (made with 2% milk) it started to taste more like a taco. I also added light sour cream, salsa and avacado. My kids ages 2 and 4 ate this with enjoyment. I really liked the combination of healthy ingredients. Jesus bless you for sharing!
