Lentil Tacos


These are quick, easy and delicious!
1 cup lentils
8 oz extra sharp cheese (“seriously sharp” cabot is my favorite)
flour tortillas
tamari or soy sauce
salsa verde *
1.  Bring lentils to a boil (in about 4 cups of water).  Reduce heat and simmer for about 15 minutes.
2.  Drain the water out, then add about 2 tbs tamari to the lentils and let sit for a few minutes.
3.  Lightly butter 1 side of the tortillas and put buttered side on a griddle. 
4.  Sprinkle 1/2 the tortilla with cheese.  Add two scoops of lentils on top of the cheese and spread evenly over 1/2 of  the tortilla.  Sprinkle the lentils with a little more cheese, then fold the other half of the tortilla over and grill until crispy.
5.  Serve with salsa Verde *

*Green salsa, made with tomatillos instead of tomatoes, is essential to this meal!  Ortega’s is the best, but its very difficult to find.   I just tried it with Goya salsa verde and the flavor was great, but a little too spicy for me.
Tomato soup goes great with this!
