Easy, cheap vegetarian/vegan tacos delicious enough that even your hardcore carnivores will love!
Heat oven to 400°. In a medium sauce pan bring water to a boil. Add salt and lentils and simmer for 35 to 40 minutes, until tender. Don't over cook them and turn them into a pile of mush, but you do want them tender.
When tender, add taco seasoning and refried beans to make a thick paste. How much refried beans you use depends on how much water is left with your lentils.
As I said before, we have pan fried these and they are delicious that way as well. It does take a little longer because you have to do it in batches, depending on how many you're making. But if you want to go that route, heat a little oil up in a skillet. When it gets hot, pan fry. Flip so you can get both sides looking lovely.
I have the Delonghi so for mine, I set it on 4 for 4 minutes, flip then for 2 additional minutes. Perfection. Also, like I said, this is filling. I can only eat three of these. My wife eats two. This is perfect for tostadas as well!
If you are vegan, no you do not have to add the oil. Just watch them carefully.
