Everyone is a sucker for Taco Tuesday. Usually, Taco Tuesday means finding the closest place that serves 99 cent tacos and enjoying a nice five minutes of scarfing down as many tacos as you can. But this Tuesday, make your own batch of black lentil tacos, complete with a microgreens and avocado topping. They’re easy, vegetarian, filling, and probably healthier (and tastier) than the normal stuff you’ve been making for dinner. Trust me, you’ll be snapchatting them all Tuesday long… and all Wednesday, when you decide to make them again.
