I believe that every dish of food we plate, should be as nutrient packed as it is tasty. Raw Lentil Tacos serves up both requirements. I used sprouted lentils which are exploding with wonderful health benefits such as; abundant source of protein, excellent source of dietary soluble fiber, and they are alkaline-forming in the body.
Sunflower seeds provide mono-unsaturatedoleic acid which helps to lower the “bad cholesterol” and increases the “good-cholesterol” in the blood. Sunflower seeds along with the portobello mushrooms are packed with calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and copper.
Adding in all the wonderful fresh veggies, then tie it all together with the warming fiesta flavors of the taco seasoning…. and well shoot, these tacos make for a wonderful meal that is packed full of nutrients and flavor.
For taco shells, I turned to simplicity… butter leaf lettuce. You do have options though. If you want something a bit more fancy, try my Sun-dried Tomato Corn Wraps . I also have a few other sides that would pair wonderfully with these Lentil Tacos such as; Chili Corn Crackers, Nacho Chili “Cheese”Corn Chips, Refried Beans (unfried-beanless-recipe), or if you don’t want to make the taco “meat” from lentils, you can make my other taco “meat” recipe that uses walnuts. So many wonderful options.
