The combination of smoked paprika and Bragg’s Amino Acids creates an almost BBQ-ish flavor.  The consistency of the quinoa and lentil taco filling has a texture similar to ground beef in your standard tacos.  This recipe is adapted from the amazing blog Healthy Slow Cooking.  In addition to some minor changes,  I revved up the nutrition by adding sweet potato!
This was a kid-approved recipe as well!  Happy Meatless Monday 🙂
