Healthy Lentil Lettuce Leaf Tacos

  • Tacos-1
  • Tacos-2
  • Tacos-3
Method

Prepare lettuce leaves by washing off any grit, patting dry with towel and placing on your serving plates.

Prepare fresh salsa by mixing all salsa ingredients together in a bowl and the guacamole in another bowl.

For the filling, heat oil in a large pan on medium-high heat. Sauté onion for two minutes until just translucent. Add garlic, lentils, beans and taco seasoning, and stir around for 3 minutes. Season with salt to your desired taste. Place into a serving bowl.

The best way to serve these is a ‘help-yourself’ layout with all fillings ready to go.

Layer up each lettuce leaf with a couple of tablespoons of filling, some salsa, squeeze of fresh lime, dollop of sour cream (Tofutti is dairy-free or cashew cream also works well) and a garnish of coriander leaves.
