To cook lentils, pour 6 C. water and lentils in a saucepan. Bring to boil, cover, reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes. Drain in a colander. While lentils are cooking, dice onion, and mince garlic. In a large skillet, sauté onion, garlic, 1 tsp. cumin, and oregano on med-high for about 7 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to med-low. Add cooked lentils, tomatoes with juice, roughly chopped spinach, 1 tsp. cumin, and salt/pepper to taste. Heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon the mixture onto tortillas. Roll up tightly, tucking in one or both ends.
