My husband would rant about how much he hated ground beef and how tacos and chili all the time made him sad, but I was way too tired to do anything about it.
So this year, I decided that we needed to eat new things and stop eating so much beef. Thus, I discovered lentils. And I am in love.
First of all, a bag of lentils is crazy cheap and I could make 2-3 meals from it. Second of all, lentils are crazy healthy. Third, they are not ground beef.
My first lentil experiment was with this soup. Yes, it looks completely gross in the picture, but trust me, it is delicious and it cheaply fed us for a few days.
So I made the soup twice and I still had more than half a bag of lentils, and I wanted to try something new. I saw this recipe for lentil tacos in my free subscription (yay!) to Self magazine and I tried it tonight. I was a little nervous about it, but it was SO GOOD. Definitely better than the ground beef tacos I had been making (a little too frequently) and so much healthier. My husband took a bite, looked me in the eyes, and said, "Can we please never eat beef tacos again?" Plus we have enough leftover for tomorrow. Yum!
