Recipe from Epicurious

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dried brown lentils, rinsed
  • 1/2 package (about 1 ounce) taco seasoning
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
  • 8 taco shells
  • toppings: salsa, avocado, sour cream (I used lactose-free plain yogurt)

Preparation

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onion, garlic and salt until onion begins to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add lentils and taco seasoning. Cook until spices are fragrant and lentils are dry, about 1 minute. Add broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until lentils are tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Uncover lentils and mix in yogurt/ sour cream.  Cook uncovered until mixture thickens, 6 to 8 minutes. Mash with a rubber spatula. Spoon 1/4 cup lentil mixture into each taco shell. Add toppings.
