Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes, stirring to prevent burning.
  3. Add the garlic powder, cumin, onion powder, and chili powder and stir until the onion is coated.
  4. Add the lentils and vegetable broth and bring to a boil.
  5. Simmer for 25-30 minutes until all the water has been absorbed and the lentils are soft, but not mushy. You may need to add a bit more water if the lentils are still firm to the bite.
  6. You can either use the lentils as-is, or you can pulse in a food processor for 8-10 seconds to get a more chunky “meaty” texture. This technique works best with french lentils.
  7. Divide into taco shells and add toppings.
