Roasted Cauliflower and Lentil Tacos with Mole Lime Sauce

YUM! This recipe is the bomb dot com!  It has been a few weeks since we tried a new recipe.  Now that some of my postgrad classes have ended, I have some time to experiment in the kitchen.  We wanted to make some kind of taco and that's when I came across a recipe on  We tweaked a few things to make it our suit our own tastebuds.  This is packed with flavor.  The lentils took forrrreeevvveerrr to cook but other than that it was super easy and is definitely going into our meal rotation! Perfect spring/summer dinner recipe...light and healthy! Enjoy...these are finger-licking good! We doubled this recipe and made eight tacos.  We decided to triple it next time because it is too good not to eat throughout the entire week!
