You know those crazy little green and orange discs you see in the grocery store called Lentils? Who knew they make an amazing Meatless Taco. In fact, our family loves it so much we PREFER it over regular tacos. Not only is it cheaper to make than using meat but it's also healthier for you! If you haven't ever tried lentil tacos give this one a try...it just might change the way you think about those crazy little green discs!
Some of you might be saying I don't even know what a lentil is! Well to be honest I didn't either before I started cooking Gluten-Free! You can find them down the bean section of your grocery store and they are super cheap. It's crazy but you can get 63% of your daily fiber from 1 cup of lentils and 18 grams of protein! They are also very high in iron. You can see all the facts about them by clicking HERE.
We eat this in taco shells, tostadas or on chips with romaine lettuce, avocado, and salsa. They are amazing! If you are not concerned about being dairy-free, cheese is great on them as well.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the fridge.
