Black Lentil Tacos with Chunky Guacamole

Black, pearly lentils serve as a springboard for these satisfying tacos that are stuffed with all sorts of attention grabbers: ultra-sweet mango, buttery avocado, and crunchy pumpkin seeds. And lining your tortillas with spinach is an easy way to up the nutritional ante. The key is not to overcook the lentils, as you still want them to have some bite.


To keep guacamole from browning if made ahead of time or when being stored as leftovers, cover it with a thin layer of water, which serves as a barrier to oxygen. When you want to use it, simply pour off the top layer of water.
