lentil tacos

sutton grace
lentil tacos is one of our favorites. we eat it at least once a week. lentils have a lot of health benefits. 
read more about them here.
i don't really measure when making this so the amounts are estimates. increase or decrease the amounts as your tastes desire.
lentil tacos 
3/4 cup of lentils (rinsed and pick out the bad ones)
1/2 medium onion diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/4 cup of taco seasoning
1-2 teaspoons of cumin
4-6 cups of water
saute garlic and onion in a little olive oil. add lentils and seasonings, stir. add water simmer until lentils are tender (adding more water as needed) about 30-40 minutes. once the lentils are cooked i prefer to mash mine a little using a potato masher. serve in a tortilla with your favorite toppings. serves 6+.
