How to Make Lentil Tacos

Once you make this lentil taco recipe a couple times you will figure out the little nuances of the recipe that you like and some that you may want to adjust!

For example, what color lentils you like to use, what broth taste best to you, and how dry or saucy you like your lentil taco filling.

Here's how to make lentil tacos our way-->

  1. Begin by adding all of the ingredients to the Instant Pot. Any Instant Pot size should do and since there is enough liquid in the pot, you shouldn't have to worry about the 'burn' notice.
  2. Next, mix everything together and make sure all the lentils are submerged in the broth and sauce.
  3. Cover the Instant Pot and make sure to close the pressure release valve. After that, set the Instant Pot to high pressure and cook for 15 minutes.
  4. Quick release the pressure when the lentils are done and give them a stir and a taste test. If the lentils are still a bit crunchy (which shouldn't happen, but could based on your Instant Pot or lentils) cook them for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. If the lentils have reached your desired consistency, stir them and let them sit for 5-10 minutes to absorb the access liquid and then enjoy!

Cooking Directions (From Frozen in the IP)

Additional Cooking Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups vegetable broth (any kind of broth or water)

Cooking Directions

  1. Run the frozen lentil tacos bag until hot water for a few seconds to loosen the lentils from the bag.

  2. Then, transfer the entire contents of the bag into the Instant Pot and add 1.5 cups vegetable broth.

  3. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, seal the vent, and set the Instant Pot to manual > high > and set the timer to 15 minutes* . It will take your Instant Pot around 5 to 10 minutes to build pressure before it starts to count down from 15.

  4. Once the timer goes off, open the vent to quick release and let the steam pour out. Once the Instant Pot unlocks, open the lid and stir.

  5. Let sit for about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with all of your favorite taco fixings.

Notes

If your lentils are still a little crunchy after 15 minutes, close the lid and cook for an additional 2 minutes at a time until they've reached your desired texture.

As the lentils sit, they will absorb more moisture and thicken. It only takes 5-ingredients to make this nutritious (and vegan!) Instant Pot Lentil Tacos recipe. Serve it on a tortilla, in a bowl or on nachos!
