Vegetarian Bean and Lentil Tacos

Vegetarian Bean and Lentil Tacos created by Starrynews

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.

ingredients

directions

  • Heat oil in a large pan over a medium heat.
  • Add in the shredded carrots, zucchini, chopped onions and the garlic powder.
  • Stir for a minute two before reducing the heat and letting them sweat for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the lentils, mushrooms and fajitas seasoning and cooking, stirring often, over medium heat for another five minutes.
  • 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.
  • Stir the refried beans into the vegetable and lentil mixture until everything is combined and the beans are just warmed through.
  • Spoon the lentil and bean mixture into the taco shells and top with shredded cheese.
  • 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!
