Lentil Walnut Tacos 🔥🔥 Gluten-free and plant based, these tacos are super quick and easy, hearty and delicious! The lentil walnut filling has a "meaty" feel that will be loved but omnivores as much as vegetarians! Serves: 6-8 tacos INGREDIENTS: Lentil Walnut Taco "Meat" : 1½ cups cooked French lentils (French lentils will give a heartier texture. Regular lentils will create a texture more like a lentil spread) NOTE: celiac friends, make sure lentils are labeled gluten-free, rinsed and picked through. Pro tip on cooking lentils: cook in water or a 50/50 mix of water and vegetable broth for extra flavor. ½ cup walnuts ½ teaspoon ground cumin 2 teaspoons oregano ½ teaspoon onion salt 1½ teaspoon chili powder ¼ teaspoon salt Salsa: 1 cup tomatoes, diced ⅓ cup red onions, diced 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice 1 teaspoon olive oil or neutral oil salt and pepper to taste Lemony Kale: 3 large leaves curly kale, coarsely chopped (approximately 1½ cups) 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice ½ cup Organic canned or frozen corn 1-2 Avocados, mashed ½ cup or more to taste Sour Cream or Cashew yogurt for serving 8-10 Gluten-free Corn or Flour tortillas cilantro and scallions for garnish, optional INSTRUCTIONS: Lentil Walnut Taco "Meat" : Add all ingredients, except ¼ -1/2 cup lentils, to a food processor and pulse 6-7x until taco "meat" texture forms. Place in a bowl and mix with reserved lentils. Note: We love whole lentils but feel free to pulse the lentils in the food processor if you want more of a meaty texture. Can be made ahead and served room temperature or heated up a bit -- either way is great! Salsa: Mix ingredients together in a medium bowl Lemony Kale: Place chopped kale in a large bowl and gently massage with lemon juice Assemble: Heat tortillas in a microwave (under a damp paper towel works best to make them soft and pliant). Top each tortilla with kale, lentil walnut taco meat, salsa, corn, smashed avocado and sour cream. Garnish with fresh cilantro and or scallions to taste... Enjoy 🙌 ✓By @healthygffamily 🖤
