BBQ Lentils

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by drhousespcatcher

From the Harrisburg Patriot Food section for Dec 14. No promises because I am putting it here for me also From the Biggest Loser Cookbook by Rodale Added: July 15th. I tried this. The brown lentils seem to take forever as the reviewers said. I would suggest trying a faster lentil. Red might be much easier in this recipe but watch it carefully when you do. French took ages. No all Lentils are not created equal [grin]

I made the changes suggested by the reviewers (3/4 cup lentils to 2 cups broth). I also added a tiny bit of Sriracha to give it a little kick. It made for a *great* dinner. I served it over brown rice with a side of kale. Yummy!!!
