Ingredients

  • 16 ounces dried red lentils
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt , for the lentils
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, divided
  • 12 ounces vegan sausage, such as Field Roast
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup green bell pepper
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced (cremini or button - I used button)
  • 1/2 cup salsa, your favorite
  • 10 whole wheat flour tortillas

Instructions

  • Put the lentils and the teaspoon of salt in a large saucepan. Add water to just cover the top of the lentils.
  • Bring to a boil and cover the pot. Turn down to medium-low heat.
  • Cook 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and the lentils are tender but not mushy. Set lentils aside.
  • In the meantime:
  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Brown the sausage on all sides. Set aside. 
  • Add the prepared onion, bell pepper and mushrooms to the pan.  Cook for about 10 minutes. Quite a bit of liquid will cook out of the mushrooms.
  • Cut up the "sausage" into small chunks.
  • You will have a lot more, of everything, than what is shown on the plate in the photo above. This is just to show you the wonderful ingredients after they are cooked.
  • Now place some lentils, bell peppers, onion, mushrooms, "sausage" and salsa down the center of a tortilla. Fold in each side to keep the ingredients from falling out and roll up the burrito. You can see in the photo what they will look like.
  • You can eat right away or keep in a tightly covered glass container in the refrigerator for 3 days.
  • Heat each burrito in the microwave for 15-20 seconds or bake on a cookie sheet at 350° for 20 minutes.
