This easy vegetarian dinner is made with lentil taco "meat," black beans, salsa, roasted corn, cheese, and Mission® Protein Tortilla Wraps. Prep is all done in under 10 minutes, and then it’s ready to bake. It’s the perfect protein-packed family dinner!
Cheesy. Salsa. Savory. Wholesome. And best of all… EASY. This protein-packed Vegetarian Taco Lasagna is about to be your new best dinner friend. And I speak from experience, considering we’ve eaten it 5 nights in the past week. You know I’m all about keeping dinner easy AND tasty. 😉
I have been obsessed with finding new ways to incorporate more non-meat protein into my diet lately. Since I’ve revved up my workout routine a bit and I’ve been incorporating more weights, I. AM. SO. HUNGRY. 😬😬😬 It’s amazing how just a small change in my exercise routine always kicks my appetite up immediately. I find myself reaching for allllllll of the snacks and going back for seconds at dinner time. The main thing that works for me is making sure I get a good serving of protein with every meal, balanced with carbs and fats. And this Vegetarian Taco Lasagna *right here* has the perfect balance.
I've been loving Mission® Protein Tortilla Wraps lately. We use them for this Vegetarian Taco Lasagna, quesadillas, enchiladas, and our regular weekly taco night too. For this Vegetarian Taco Lasagna, we're layering their protein tortillas (made with plant-based protein - also lower carb and high fiber), lentil taco meat, and black beans. That means we’re getting allllllll of the protein, carbs, and fiber. Then we have just the right amount of fat thanks to the cheese, avocado, and sour cream on top.
The only hands-on cooking that we have to do for this recipe is seasoning and sautéing the corn. And this is key. The corn gets caramelized and smoky, which adds a ton of flavor to the equation. After we’re done with that quick step, we just mash the lentils and start layering the lasagna. Then pop it into the oven and wait! 20 minutes later, we have a beautiful steaming pan of the best Mexican lasagna you’ve ever tasted.
These Mission® Protein Tortilla Wraps hold up SO well as the "lasagna" in this dish. They soak up just enough of the salsa and crisp up around the edges. 😍 Layer upon layer of delicious, cheesy goodness. This is basically taco night in lasagna form… what’s not to love?
Very important sidenote: We took some of the leftovers of this taco lasagna over to our friends and they LOVED it. We got a text from them saying they had it for breakfast and the response was "DUDE. This is SERIOUSLY GOOD! Even for breakfast!" If it's good as leftovers at 7am, you KNOW it's good. 😍
I can’t wait to hear what you guys think of this recipe! Be sure to snap a picture and post it on Instagram so we can share it on our story – and leave us a comment down below! <3
