6. Make the “tacos”

Wash and dry the lettuce leaves with care not to break them. Place one on a plate “looking upwards” (if it’s too wide you can fold the edges) and add the lentils mix on the center. Garnish with extra spring onion, diced chilies or tomatoes sauce, but most importantly, make it extra delicious with tahini sauce on top.
