Easy Lentil Tacos!!!
(The name even says its Easy - my kinda recipe!)
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, Minced (NOTE - I didn't use this & it was fine without)
2 cups vegetable broth
1 cup dry lentils
2 Tbsp Mexican seasoning
12 corn taco shells
2 cups finely shredded cabbage
1 cup fresh salsa
Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
Add onion & garlic & cook 6 to 8 minutes or until tender and golden.
Add broth, lentils & Mexican seasoning; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover & simmer 20 - 25 minutes or until lentils are tender.
Uncover; mash lentils slightly (I forgot to do this - again turned out fine) & cook 6 to 8 minutes or until sauce is thickened.
Spook mixture into taco shells; top with cabbage, salsa & avocado
Y'all... this is DELICIOUS!
The lentils taste really 'meaty' & I am hooked to have cabbage on top of my tacos now.
Let me know if you give it a try...

Needless to say, my mental game is kicking in right now because this is freaking me out knowing I'm loosing some of my running endurance while my knee is deciding to throw a fit like Veruca Salt ...
|A inside look of my knee|
& with my mouth pain & feeling like someone has punched me, I just am feeling like the world is taking its jabs at me lately
... & yet, I have 2 weeks to be ready for 13.1 miles.
I'm just coming to grips that while all my races for the Triple Crown were better than my previous races from last year, this half marathon? Probably ain't gonna be a goal setter.
I just want to finish. That's my goal now. Goals shift. That's ok. That's how life works.
I just want to cross the line, get a medal. I'm really getting my mind set with this kind of thinking...
I'm hoping these last 2 weeks of training really takes a turn & gives me a boost of confidence. But if not, it all makes me stronger in the end, right?
