It’s TACO TUESDAY, and all I want are these vegan lentil tacos I made last week! Soft-shell tortillas filled with the most delicious walnut lentil taco “meat” and baked to perfection!
Pair them with all your favorite sides, like salsa, guacamole and dairy-free cheese sauce and you have the ultimate plant-based dinner.
I’ve been adding cooked lentils to my weekly grocery list to keep on hand for a quick, high-fiber protein. A few weeks ago, I made the most delicious lentil meatballs, and last week I wanted to create a meat-like taco filling.
These came out SO GOOD, and most of the ingredients are pretty much pantry goods!
What you’ll need for these vegan lentil tacos:
- cooked lentils
- soft-shell tortillas, I used an almond flour based one!
- vegetable broth
- diced tomatoes
- onion & garlic
- olive oil
- hot sauce
- taco seasoning
Just a few simple ingredients are all you need! I love making the mix ahead of time, and stuffing my tortillas 20 minutes before dinner. It comes together so easily, and is truly a satisfying meal!
The addition of walnuts in this recipe gives the perfect nutty taste, while adding heart-healthy omega-3 fats to the meal. The baked tortillas are key to getting these tacos crispy, but you can swap your favorite hard shell tortillas to save yourself a step!
These lentil walnut tacos are becoming a staple in our house, and I can’t wait for you guys to try them!
