Lentil Tacos with Avocado Cilantro Sauce

To make these Lentil Tacos, you’ll first sauté onions and garlic in a pan until browned, then add spices and cook for another minute. You’ll then add the red lentils and broth, and simmer until liquid has absorbed. Meanwhile, you’ll prepare the avocado sauce by combining the ingredients in a small food processor until smooth.
