Vegan Lentil Tacos


For Lentil Filling:

  • 1 cup dried green or brown lentils
  • 2 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For Toppings:

  • Tortillas (corn or flour)
  • Avocado slices or guacamole
  • Salsa
  • Shredded lettuce or cabbage
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Vegan sour cream or cashew cream (optional)
  • Lime wedges


  1. Cook Lentils: Rinse the lentils and place them in a pot with vegetable broth or water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until lentils are tender but not mushy. Drain any excess liquid.
  2. Prepare Filling: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onion and cook until translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add minced garlic and diced bell pepper, and cook for another 2-3 minutes until bell pepper is tender.
  3. Add Seasonings: Stir in chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for another minute to toast the spices and blend flavors.
  4. Combine Lentils: Add cooked lentils to the skillet with the onion and bell pepper mixture. Stir well to combine and let the flavors meld together for a couple of minutes.
  5. Assemble Tacos: Warm tortillas in a skillet or microwave. Spoon the lentil filling onto each tortilla. Top with avocado slices or guacamole, salsa, shredded lettuce or cabbage, chopped tomatoes, and any other desired toppings.
  6. Serve: Serve the tacos with lime wedges on the side for squeezing over the top.
