Instructions

Read through the entire recipe before getting started.
Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 400ºF.

 

\

Rough chop cilantro. Mince or grate garlic. Small dice onion. Dice celery stalks.

\

Cook lentils: In a medium saucepan, place lentils and 6 cups water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 17 to 20 minutes or until tender but not mushy. Remove from pot and drain any excess water. Do not wash pot.

\

Add 1 Tbsp. oil to previously used cup. Add onion, celery, and garlic and sauté for until softened. Add lentils, taco seasoning, salt, pepper and a few Tbsp. of water to incorporate. Cook stirring occasionally for a few minutes until lentils are seasoned and aromatics are softened. Add half of the cilantro and toss to incorporate.

\

Drizzle the bottom of a baking sheet with olive oil. Warm the tortillas in microwave for 30-60 seconds, just to get them pliable. Spread the lentil mix in the center and roll up. Place seam side down on baking sheet and repeat with remaining tortillas. Bake for 8 min, flip and bake for another 5 min.

\

Meanwhile, prepare cilantro sour cream: Place sour cream, lime juice, remaining cilantro and a pinch of salt and pepper in a food processor or blender. Mix until incorporated (or simply mix together!) Serve with tacos and pickled radishes!
