Lentil Tacos

Who doesn’t love tacos? The lentil filling for these romaine lettuce tacos can be enjoyed warm or cold according to your preference. If you’re looking for something a little heartier, feel free to try corn-free, gluten free tortillas instead. For an extra kick, this recipe would pair well with the Spicy Lime “Vinaigrette” on page 388 or even the Mint Tahini Sauce on page 390 of my book Liver Rescue.

In Liver Rescue, I share how the star ingredients in this recipe can support you and your loved ones in healing. Let’s take a look…

Onions (and scallions): Very similar to garlic, onions have antimicrobial sulfur compounds that expel unfriendly pathogens from the liver. Onions have a disinfecting quality for the liver, keeping it from becoming inflamed. They also improve the temperature control or “thermostat” of the liver so it can heat and cool itself properly.

Leafy greens (especially lettuces and their stems): An extremely cleansing tool for your liver that you can apply on a daily basis. The leafy outer greens of lettuce provide dozens of micronutrients for the liver to stay healthy and balanced, while the core of the lettuce, down closer to the root, provides milky chemical compounds that act as a purging mechanism for it. When leafy greens are eaten with fruit, their medicinal qualities increase twofold.

Mushrooms: Contain hundreds of undiscovered phytochemical compounds, many of which are detoxifying for the liver without hurting it. Mushrooms are medicine for the liver. Many people fear mushrooms because they believe that their status as a type of fungus means they feed fungus within the body. It’s just the opposite. A mushroom is a fungus that destroys fungus, and the liver accepts mushrooms as allies—if the liver is dealing with unwanted microorganisms such as fungus, mushrooms are very helpful in pushing them out of the liver. Mushrooms also reduce fungus, bacteria, and viruses in the intestinal tract, allowing for cleaner nutrients and cleaner blood to arrive in the liver.

Lentil Tacos

Ingredients:
1 cup diced onion
½ cup vegetable broth (see Tips)
1 cup diced mushrooms (optional)
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups cooked lentils (see Tips)
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
½ teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon chipotle powder
¼ teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional)
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon cayenne (optional)
2 heads romaine or butter lettuce

Directions:
Sauté the onion in 2 tablespoons of vegetable broth over medium-high heat for approximately 5 minutes until tender. Continue to add vegetable broth by the spoonful as needed to prevent sticking.

Add the mushrooms, garlic, lentils, poultry seasoning, cumin, paprika, chipotle, honey, and sea salt to the sauté pan. If spiciness is desired, add the cayenne as well.

Continue to cook everything over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender and cooked through.

Serve the lentil mixture in individual romaine leaves as “taco shells” and top with any or all of the optional toppings.

Tips:
The Liver Rescue Broth found on page 368 can be used for this recipe, or you can use store-bought. As in the previous recipe, make sure it doesn’t contain canola oil, citric acid, natural flavors, or other sneaky additives. Water can also be substituted when vegetable broth is unavailable.

Brown or green lentils work best for this recipe. Prepare 1 cup of dried lentils according to the directions on the packaging.

Makes 3 servings
