Lentils are fun. They soak up the flavors of whatever you cook them in. Toss them in your slow cooker and after 8 hours you have a meatless meal with lots of flavor and fiber.
Vegan Lentil Taco "Meat"
1 1/2 cups lentils (I used beluga lentils)
3 cups vegetable broth
14 oz can diced tomatoes with juice (low sodium preferred)
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Dash cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Place all ingredients into your slow cooker and cook on low for 8-9 hours. Serve in a tortilla, on nachos, in a taco salad, etc.
