Taco Lettuce Wraps ~ Meatless Monday

Happy Monday everyone!!  I think this has become one of my new favourite meatless meals.  It’s quick and easy to make, full of protein, good-for-you carbs and healthy fats. I know you’ll love it too!  Try these lentil lettuce wraps for dinner tonight.lettuce wrapsPrint Recipe

Serves 1

1/2 cup of cooked lentils (100g)
1 cup chopped veggies: peppers, celery and green onion
2 large leaves of romaine lettuce, rinsed and dried
1/2 avocado, sliced
2 Tbsp salsa
2 Tbsp Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp taco seasoning (mixture of cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and S&P) + 2 Tbsp of water

To save time, cook your lentils the night before, or using a 1:2 ratio of beans to water, add to a pot and simmer for about 30 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed.

In a medium frying pan add the peppers and celery.  Sauté for a few minutes.  Add the lentils along with the taco seasoning and water.  Sauté again for a few more minutes.  Scoop this on top of the romaine lettuce and top with green onions, salsa and Greek yogurt.

Wrap it up, devour and enjoy!
