If you’ve ever heard of Campbell’s recipe for Taco Skillet, you would understand how tasty this is. We completely veganized it and it tastes pretty darn close to the original! A simple and warm meal that you can add anything to! Serve with a side salad or vegetables. This recipe is the core of the meal, but I think it would be really tasty if you added bell peppers to the top. You can add your vegetables wherever! This happens to be oil-free, too, so it has a low fat content. Enjoy!


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup lentils, uncooked
  • vegetable broth, enough to cover the lentils (about 1 cup or so)
  • 1 cup tomato soup
  • 1 cup chunky salsa
  • 1 cup water
  • 8 corn tortillas, cut into 1″ pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar


Step 1

Place lentils in a saucepan with vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the water has evaporated and the lentils are soft. Place in a food processor with oats. Process to combine.

Step 2

For seasonings (flour, onion flakes, garlic salt, cumin, paprika, chili powder, onion salt, cayenne, and sugar), combine well in a bowl.

Step 3

In a large skillet, or electric skillet, on medium-high heat cook lentil and oat mixture with seasonings. Cook until browned, then add tomato soup, salsa, water, and corn tortillas. Bring to a boil, then cover and cook for 5 minutes. Serve with whatever other vegetables you choose and enjoy.
