Mexican taco lentils.
This week we weren’t able to partake in Taco Tuesday due to an away swim meet so Wednesday it was! We aren’t fans of missing our favorite cuisine. So Wednesday I had a much needed day off & was excited to create a meat substitute for our taco bar. I took a traditionally Indian lentil and did a bit of Mexican fusion by adding salsa and roasted poblanos. These lentils came out perfectly & cooking in the Instant Pot made this dish exponentially easier.
These lentils would be lovely as a side dish, atop a salad or mixed greens for lunch or straightaway with tortillas or naan. Lentils are packed with protein, iron and potassium. We also love lentils with scrambled tofu for breakfast. Just some ideas to incorporate lentils into your menu.
