This Ancho Lentil Tacos recipe is from one of the best vegan chef’s around, Isa Chandra Moskowitz of the Post Punk Kitchen.  Her book, Isa Does It, is truly amazing.

The breakdown: mildly spiced protein-packed lentils (Did you know they have about 17 grams of protein per cup?!), romaine, avocado slices, pico de gallo, and of course, two corn tortilla shells…one hard, one soft (crunchy & chewy FTW).

From the vegan lens: Whenever I eat cruelty-free taco meat, I always think, If people could have delicious, flavorful, protein-rich plant-based taco meat, instead of the oppressive, flesh-based alternative…why wouldn’t they?
