You may not think of these foods as typical burrito ingredients, but lentils, mushroom, and kale make a surprisingly delicious combination, especially when topped with creamy goat cheese. Plus you'll reap the health benefits of mushrooms, protein-packed lentils, and nutrient-filled kale. 


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large bunch curly kale, tough stems and ribs removed, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 1 pound white mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 ­1/2 cups canned lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 cup salsa
  • 4 8-inch whole-wheat tortillas, warmed
  • 1/2 cup crumbled soft goat cheese



1. In a large deep skillet or pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add kale, mushrooms, and cumin. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-­low and cook, stirring occasionally, until kale is wilted and mushrooms are browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Add lentils and salsa and cook, stirring often, until heated through, about 5 minutes.
2. Spoon lentil mixture down the middle of each warmed tortilla, leaving a 2-­inch border on each side. Sprinkle evenly with crumbled goat cheese. Roll up like burritos.
