Moroccan Potato Lentil Tacos With Harissa [Vegan]



For the Harissa and Potato Lentil Filling:
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 small potato, diced
  • 1 cup dried red lentils
  • 2 cups stewed tomatoes
  • 1 cup spicy harissa
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
For the Tacos:
  • 8 small tortillas
  • Fresh arugula
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • Vegan goat cheese, for topping
  • Scallions, green parts only, thinly sliced
  • Agave nectar, for drizzling


  1. In a large dutch oven or heavy-bottomed soup pot, add the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and sauté until translucent, about 7 minutes. Add diced potatoes and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Stir in lentils, stewed tomatoes, harissa, vegetable broth and sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and let cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture begins to thicken and most of the liquid has cooked off, about 45 minutes.
  2. While the lentils are cooking, prepare the taco toppings.
  3. When lentils are cooked, divide the mixture among the tortillas. Top with arugula, diced avocado, vegan goat cheese, sliced scallions and a drizzle of agave nectar.
