These Instant Pot gluten-free vegan taco lentils are perfect for actual tacos, and they also make a great addition to vegetables in a stir-fry fashion or turned into a tortilla soup with extra vegetable broth. Try some red or green lentils to mix it up, or keep the brown lentils for an earthier taste and a meat-like appearance. The salsa can be swapped for something spicer, or turn this into an Italian-inspired meal with crushed tomatoes and some fresh basil at the end.

Ingredients:

1 tbs avocado oil
½ yellow onion, diced
1 small head of garlic, about 6-8 cloves, minced
1 cup dry brown lentils
1 cup mild salsa
¼ cup vegetable broth
1 tbs Spanish paprika
1 tsp spicy chili powder
Himalayan salt, to taste
Fresh black pepper, to taste

Instructions:

Set the Instant Pot on Sauté and add avocado oil, diced yellow onion, and garlic. Sauté until the onions are soft and the garlic is brown and aromatic.
