Tasty Lentil Tacos - Review by MDH192
Fantastic. We have been experimenting lately with new recipes - not really being vegetarian, but making an effort to increase our consumption of alternative proteins and vegetables. Being somewhat more traditional eaters, we aren't ready to go straight for the tofu or eat completely different types of foods. I have had so much fun making traditional foods with alternative ingredients. This recipe is PERFECT for that! I actually turned it into taco salad instead of tacos, but it's the same idea. Great texture (better than ground beef, I think) - not at all mushy. The lentils both bind to AND separate from one another like ground beef, making this a better taco "meat" than beans. The flavor is fantastic. I took the leftovers to work, and several people commented on how wonderful it smelled. Conclusion: SO GOOD that even meat and potatoes eaters won't be fazed by the absense of meat.
