It’s Monday and if you’re thinking of going meatless, I offer you this fantastic taco recipe. It’s quick and easy and delicious. You get fantastic plant based protein in the form of brown lentils. They pack a super healthy punch: one cup of cooked lentils gives you almost 18 grams of protein and 15 grams of fibre. Cauliflower is high in vitamin C, gives you 3 grams of fibre and is a good source of antioxidants.
Fine, but how does it taste! Delish. It’s savoury and flavourful has great texture and makes for wonderful leftovers!
La Costena is an excellent brand of Mexican spices and sauces and you can almost always find them at No Frills in Toronto. Their Chipotle Peppers in Adobe sauce is wonderful. If you’re in the east end, Royal Beef often has dried peppers on hand. You can serve these with flour, corn or hard shell tacos. If you want to really treat yourself (and have the time), you can get fresh corn tortillas at La Tortilleria Market in Kensington Market.
As always, try this recipe and then make it your own by adding spice and flavour to suit your tastes.
Happy Meatless Monday!
