Vegan Lentil Taco Salad Bowls
Vegan Lentil Taco Salad Bowls are my Sunday jam! I make these most Sundays in place of the traditional Sunday roast. Not only do these taco salad bowls taste delicious, they are healthy and wholesome too!
I make the lentil base by sautéing onions, garlic and green pepper in hot oil. I cook the lentils in a pan of water. Once they are cooked, I add them to the onion pan along with black beans, tomato paste and taco seasonings. And that’s it – I assemble the salad bowls with a selection of toppings like red cabbage, avocado, green onions, tomato and lime wedges.
