Updated: Nov 23, 2020
I'll be honest with you, this recipe tastes way better than I was expecting. Lentils are a great source of natural protein and are very filling! This recipe is so simple to make in the crock-pot and it freezes well. Let's get cooking!
Ingredients: 16oz Bag of Lentils (brown or red)
16oz Can of Diced Tomatoes (drained)
1 Medium Bell Pepper
1 Large Onion
1 Tbs Minced Garlic
3-4 Cups Vegetable Broth
5 Tbs Bbq sauce of your choice
1 Tsp Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Nutritional Yeast (optional)
Dice onion and bell pepper and add them to your crockpot.
Add Lentils to your crockpot then fill in with vegetable broth. You want your lentils completely covered with broth, which will be between 3-4 cups.
Add in garlic, olive oil, paprika, and 3 table spoons of barbecue sauce. Cook on LOW for 5 hours, stirring occasionally.
After 5 hours, add in last 2 table spoons of barbecue sauce, salt and pepper, and sprinkle the top with nutritional yeast (if using). Cook for another 30 minutes.
Serve warm. Leftovers can be refrigerated for 5-7 days. Enjoy!
