Try this easy spin on tacos that are fun for the whole family.  Some assembly required with this DIY dinner!

Ingredients (Yields 6 Tacos):

Drizzle canola or olive oil, for cooking Lentil Tacos
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1-14 oz (398 mL) can diced or stewed tomatoes
1 cup (250 mL) lentils
2 tsp (10 mL) chili powder
½ tsp (2 mL) cumin
Dash salt and pepper
6 or more taco shells or soft flour tortillias
  shredded cheese
  shredded lettuce
  chopped tomatoes
  sour cream or plain greek yogurt


  1. In a large, shallow pan, heat a drizzle of oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 4-5 minutes, until soft and starting to turn golden around the edges. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  2. Add the tomatoes, lentils, chili powder and cumin, along with 1 cup of water. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 40 minutes, or until the lentils are tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Add a little more water if it seems too dry. If it seems too wet, continue cooking until the excess moisture has been cooked off.
  3. Serve the lentils in taco shells, with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, guacamole and sour cream for garnish.
