Lentil Tacos

One of the reasons tacos are a favorite around our house is the endless possibilities of fresh veggies and toppings that can be added - olives, tomatoes, avocado, greens, caramelized onions and peppers are just a few of our must haves on taco night- making it super easy to eat the rainbow in one sitting. Spanish Pardina Lentils are called for in the recipe however any lentil would work well - canned lentils would cut your prep time in half, getting dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes.

  1. Thinly slice each onion half – in a medium pan melt coconut butter over medium heat. Add onion slices, tossing to coat. Cook onions over medium – low heat stirring occasionally for 15 minutes or until onions begin to caramelize.

These directions are pretty much f\'d up! Can someone fix this? Is there anyone that reads the comments other then other commentators? There is no mention of when to put in spices, no idea what add lentils through liquid smoke means and how do you simmer the cooked lentils with just a 1/2 tsp of liquid? Last time I checked one needed more liquid to simmer am I wrong?

It means to add the lentils through to the liquid smoke in the ingredient list. So lentils, tomato paste, paprika, chipotle seasoning, and liquid smoke.
