Lentil Tacos

What you need: 

6 to 10 mushrooms, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic
oil, as needed
2 cups prepared lentils
2 tablespoons chili powder
salt and pepper, to taste
garlic powder, to taste
cumin, to taste
2 to 4 tablespoons water
8 corn tortillas
2 cups lettuce, shredded
pico de gallo, to taste
1 (14 ounce) can vegetarian refried beans
2 avocados, mashed
1 tomato, diced

What you do: 

1. Put mushrooms, garlic, and onion in a skillet with some cooking oil. Cook over medium heat until onions are translucent. Add the lentils, seasoning, and water. Heat and blend.
2. Soften the corn tortillas in hot oil, about 2 to 4 seconds dipped in the hot oil is good and keeps them from getting too hot.
3. Use the lentil and mushroom mix as you would taco meat. Add the refried beans, mashed avocado, pico, lettuce and tomato.

In this dish you dont really notice them to much, they are diced just a bit larger than the lentils and they just help to add a bit more texture to the filling. You should try it.  ;)b


Cooking mushrooms makes me nervous... What are the texture of these when you cook them. When I've tried the texture was just way too slimy and I kind of felt sick. If you have any tips, let me know because I'd love to start using mushrooms more. Thanks!
