  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 6 taco shells (store-bought or self-made)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 1 cup brown lentils, cooked (1 cup = 1 can 400g/14oz wet weight) (alternatively cook 100g dried lentils in veggie broth according to packet instructions)
  • 6 tbsp salsa (store-bought or self-made)
  • 2 tbsp fajita/burrito seasoning (store-bought or self-made)
  • 1 ½ cups mixed salad
  • ½ cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated



  • Dice the onions and garlic.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the onion. Cook on medium heat until soft. Add a splash of hot water if they get too dry while frying.
  • Add the garlic and drained lentils and stir well.
  • Next, add the fajita seasoning and the
    water. Keep stirring it well.
  • In the meantime, put the taco shells or wraps in the oven. They’ll just need 2-3 minutes to cook, but check packet instructions.
  • Wash the salad and tomatoes, then slice the tomatoes.
  • Cook the lentils until the water has evaporated – this won’t take long.

To stack the taco:

  • Layer lentils along the bottom. Next is the cheese and the optional nutritional yeast. Then comes the salsa followed by the salad and tomatoes. Enjoy!
