1 teaspoon canola oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 medium onion, minced
1 cup dry lentils, brown, green or red
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 ½ cups vegetable or low sodium chicken broth
1 cup salsa (preferably low in sugar)
corn tortillas for serving


Heat oil in medium saucepan and saute onion and garlic until onion is translucent (about 5 minutes). Add lentils, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and stir for one minute to toast the spices. Add the vegetable or chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 20-25 minutes until the lentils are tender and most of the broth has been absorbed. Mix in 1 cup of salsa and serve! This recipe freezes well.
