Instructions

Cook the lentils

  • Rinse the lentils under cold water a few times.

  • Chop 1 onion and 3 cloves of garlic finely. Preheat a medium sauce pan over medium heat and once hot add 1-2 tablespoons of oil, then add the onions and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes then add the Mexican seasoning and 1 teaspoon of cumin, stir and cook for about 3 minutes more. Add the lentils, salt and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium low. Cover with a lid and cook for 40-45 minutes. Taste and adjust salt.

Make the slaw

  • Thinly slice the remaining onion.

  • Chop the cilantro and transfer to a bowl and combine with the sliced onion and cabbage.

  • In a small bowl, add the juice of a lime, 2 pressed garlic cloves, remaining cumin, salt and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Combine with the slaw and mix well. Taste and adjust salt.

Cook the tortillas

  • Preheat a pan over high heat and once hot, place 1 tortilla at a time and cook for about a minute, then flip on the other side and cook for 1 more minute. Tortillas should look blistered. Place the cooked tortillas in a towel or the same bag they were packaged in, this will keep them warm and soft.

Assemble the tacos

  • Slice the avocado into strips

  • Layer each tortilla with coleslaw, lentils, slices of avocado, sprouts and top with crema. Enjoy!
