Tacos With Spicy, Smoky Lentils

Serves 4.

Note: This recipe originally called for smoked sun-dried tomatoes, to layer the smoky flavors; those might be hard to find, but a dash of Spanish pimenton and regular sun-dried tomatoes will do the job. Adapted from “The Southern Vegetarian,” by Justin Fox Burks and Amy Lawrence, the duo behind the blog Chubby Vegetarian.
