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!
These were delicious!! Very easy to make and a satisfying dinner. I also used almond flour tortillas which made the texture perfect. Topped it with homemade guac! Will definitely make again.
Really good! Do you know calorie count per taco?
I’m sorry unfortunately I don’t calculate the calories on my blog
These were SO GOOD!! Best vegan tacos I’ve had and my boyfriend, who eats meat, raved about how good they were. This recipe should be everywhere!!
Thank you, Leigh Anne!!
