INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 POSITIVELY PLANTAIN TORTILLAS 
  • 1/2 CUP CHOPPED WALNUT PIECES
  • 3/4 CUP UNCOOKED BROWN LENTILS (OR 1 CAN LENTILS, DRAINED AND RINSED)
  • 1 1/2 TABLESPOON OLIVE OIL
  • 1/4 CUP CHOPPED WHITE ONION
  • 1 TEASPOON DRIED OREGANO
  • 1 TABLESPOON GROUND CUMIN
  • 1 TABLESPOON CHILI POWDER
  • 1/2 TEASPOON SALT (OPTIONAL IF USING CANNED LENTILS)

  • 1 CAN BLACK BEANS 
  • GUACAMOLE
  • 1 LIME 
  • CASHEW SOUR CREAM

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. If using dried lentils, rinse lentils then add to a medium sauce pot and cover with water by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 25 minutes until tender. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the walnuts. Toast for ~2 minutes, stirring often until walnuts are lightly browned and fragrant, taking care not to burn. Place the walnuts in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Add the oil to the same skillet along with the onion and spices. Cook for 5-6 minutes until onions are reduced and translucent but not browned. Add the cooked (or canned) lentils and walnut mixture along with the salsa or broth and cook another 2-3 minutes, gently mashing some of the lentils with the back of your spoon/spatula.
  4. Season to taste, adding more salt/spice as needed.
  5. Heat individual tortillas on a dry pan until slightly browned, pliable, and fully heated.
  6. Add beans, lentil taco "meat" and guacamole to tortillas. Garnish with lime and cilantro.
  7. Serve immediately and enjoy!
