Summer Vegetable & Lentil Taco Filling

IMG_7976

On my quest to create some awesome vegan recipes with ingredients you can buy at Trader Joes,
I stumbled upon an easy taco filling.  Substitute any other of your favorite vegetables!  Just take note that their taco seasoning is bit spicy so go easy with it and if you want to use less you can add in some cumin or other spices for flavor without the heat.
