When Taco Tuesday rolls around, I challenge myself to make a different taco recipe every week. Although this vegan lentil taco recipe is an oldie, I revised it to make it even better. In fact, my new lentil tacos are not only full of fabulous lentil taco meat, but I added sautéed vegetables, sunflower sprouts, and my Blackberry Dijon Sauce.
Unfortunately, Mexican food is often not vegan-friendly. So instead, my homemade vegan oil-free lentil tacos, are fresh sassy, and unbelievably summery.
We love flour and corn tortillas and everything about tacos, especially the variety of vegetable filling options in you.
For this recipe, for example, I opted for white corn tortillas. Lower in fat and thicker in texture, these shells hold all the ingredients I pack into these tacos.
HOW TO MAKE VEGAN LENTIL TACOS
Vegan lentil taco meat, for instance, is easy to prepare and reheats well. It can also be frozen if you choose to make a batch in advance.
As a matter of fact, we eat tacos so often I decided to buy a taco gadget called a Stainless Steel Taco Holder. It holds the tacos upright so they don't fall apart and displays the tacos well.
Can you tell I love kitchen gadgets?
We use taco holders every Taco Tuesday, and they work great. They actually hold the shells in place to add everything at once, without anything falling out. As a result, I picked up my taco with all the 'fixins,' and everything stayed intact. This little gadget is a modern taco miracle.
