I had first tried the chickpea tacos from “Thug Kitchen” at my besties house (also creator of the beautiful blog ibbyandpop.com). She blogged the recipe here and they were delicious. A couple weeks later we also tried making them and they were awesome and really so super easy.
While Chris was down the street at the park painting I decided to make something for the blog…And I was craving those tacos.
I didn’t have the ingredients to make them so I used sweet potato (which I roasted with the soy sauce and spices) and lentils which I mixed in afterwards. They turned out great!
- 1-2 cup(s) of cooked lentils
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1 onion
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 lime
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
- salt & pepper
Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Chop up the onion, sweet potato and crush garlic cloves. Place a in a large bowl. Pour in the oil and soy sauce, stir, add all the spices.
Lay it all out on a large rimmed baking sheet and bake until the potato is cooked through and is starting to brown.
Remove from pan and add to cooked lentils mix up and squeeze the juice of half a lime.
We are lucky to have a little Mexican grocery store a few blocks away so we had fresh corn tortillas (still warm) and topped our tacos with a little cheese, salsa and some bright green avocado.
These were amazing!! I’m so happy we have some left over…Although, I don’t think any of it will still be in the fridge by tomorrow.
