Black Lentil Fajitas

These are rich in protein and fiber and tons of flavor…

  • 1 cup cooked black lentils (sub green or brown lentils)
  • 2 Tbs fajita seasoning
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 cups cabbage, shredded
  • 2 T vegan mayo
  • 1 lime, zest and juice
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • 1 avocado
  • 6 organic corn tortillas
  • salt and pepper

Place a large skillet over med high heat, add a little water or oil and the onion, stir until onion is limp. Add garlic and peppers, continue stirring so that the garlic does not burn or stick to the pan. Add a little more water if needed. When the peppers have softened, add the cooked lentils and fajita spice blend and another 2 tablespoons of water. Stir to coat all the ingredients.  Turn heat to low, and cook while you combine the cabbage, cilantro, mayo and 2 Tbs of lime juice and 1/2 tsp zest and a 1/4 tsp salt in a mixing bowl. Stir well to coat the cabbage. Slice the avocado and warm the corn tortillas in a low temp oven or toaster oven. Once everything is prepared, scoop the lentil and pepper mixture over the corn tortillas, layer on the slaw and avocado. Dress with a little squeeze of lime and enjoy!


Stuffed Greens

There are so many creative fillings that can be used to stuff greens or make green wraps. Here’s a few ideas:

  • Hummus – store bought or make your own veggie style with this recipe
  • Spiced nut / seed butters – see this recipe and layer on the chopped veggies
  • Cashew Macadamia Cheese – Here, add sliced peppers and cucumber
  • Equal parts, chopped avocado and mango, sprinkled with a little rice vinegar
  • Any leftover grain salads

That’s just to get you started. Create your own and make a wrap using lettuce, cabbage, collards and Swiss chard. Each one has its own nutritional profile, so to get the best overall nutrition, its good to have variety with the greens and fillings.
