Chili Lime Lentil Tacos With Spicy Grilled Pineapple Salsa [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan



Cook Time



For the Lentils:

  • 1 cup lentils
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Salsa:

  • 1/2 pineapple, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, cut into big pieces
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1/2 red onion, quartered
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon juiced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


For the Salsa:

  1. Get out 2 skewers. If using wooden skewers make sure to soak at least 30 minutes before grilling time.
  2. Heat up grill. Once hot place sliced pineapple on grill.
  3. Take your skewers and run them thru the onion quarters.
  4. Brush peppers and onion with a bit of olive oil and place on grill as well.
  5. Cover grill and cook about 3-5 minutes. Flip pineapples and vegetables over once you have a nice char on the outside and repeat on the other side. Please note grilling times will vary so keep an eye on these.
  6. Once done, remove and place on plate until cool enough to handle. Once cool, remove skin from peppers and dice up all vegetables. Place into a bowl and add in lemon juice. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Place in refrigerator.
  7. If time permits, the longer it sits the better the salsa will become. Chill a couple of hours if you can.

For the Lentils:

  1. Add water to a medium saucepan and boil water. Add in dried lentils and cook roughly 20 minutes or until nice and soft. Remove from heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine all spice together.
  3. Add spice mixture, lime zest, lime juice and tomato paste to lentils and stir to combine. Adjust seasoning as needed.


The amount of lime juice will depend on the size and juiciness of your limes, so adjust as needed.

It seems that half the recipe is missing. I only have details for the lentil, prep details for both and no mention of a taco. Am I missing something?

I wish your recipes were easier to print. I open the recipe and then have to print the web pages associated with it. All I want is the recipe. Lots of great stuff just hard to access for home use
