Every month, I make the featured recipe in the 2012 Happy Herbivore calendar. So far, all the recipes have been low-fat (that's the HH's schtick) and delicious. So far, I've made strawberry cupcakes, hot cocoa, green pea hummus, and colcannon, But May's selection is my favorite by far — Lentil Tacos!!
The recipe is so simple, and I'm sorta pissed that I've never thought to use lentils in place of taco meat before. But now I'm making up for all that lost time. Lentils make the best taco meat, y'all! Dried lentils are cooked with chili powder, onion powder, and lots of other spices to create a tasty taco meat. The recipe calls for optional chickpeas, so I used those as well.
The rest of my taco is topped with Galaxy Vegan Mexican Shreds, Follow Your Heart Non-Dairy Sour Cream, tomatoes, and my new friend arugala. Yes, I'm giving arugala a second chance, and I think we've reconciled our differences. Also on the plate is a heapin' helpin' of my Dirty South Rice (the recipe will be in my cookbook, but it's basically a Spanish-influenced dirty rice).
What do you put in your taco? (And yes, I'm aware that sounds dirty).
