Ok, so my husband recently asked me to start making 2 or so meatless dinners a week. This was my first attempt. Let me preface this by saying that my husband is very much a meat and potatos sort of man, but is becoming more health conscious about the food he/we eats. I followed this recipe exactly when it comes to preparing the lentils. They did simmer covered for 30 minutes and then uncovered for probably 20 more until all liquid was absorbed. I didn't mash them. As for the tortillas, I don't buy preformed taco shells. Instead I lightly pan fry (1T oil in skillet at a time for 4 tortillas) them by first placing a soft corn tortilla flat in skillet and then adding filling in the middle, gently folding it over once it is soft enough and browning on each side of the taco until slightly crispy. I know this adds some fat to the recipe, but I'm pretty sure preformed shells have *other* stuff in them. I served them with mexican style sour cream, sharp cheddar cheese, tomatos, shredded cabbage, salsa and cilantro. These were wonderful! My 5 and 7 year olds who typically lose most of the meat out onto their plates loved these. The lentils are sticky, so they stay where they are supposed to. Thanks for the recipe! Our first meatless family dinner was a success.
