BBQ Baked Lentils for Diabetics

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

1/2 the recipe is hearty, healthy and delicious meal for 4 when served on some grainy rolls with a salad. It has a similar flavour to baked beans, cooks quicker, and is a winner with veggies and omnis alike! If starting with canned, pre-cooked lentils, you will need approximately 6 cups of them, reserve 1 cup of the canning liquid and proceed with the recipe! If you don't like lentils (I go through phases myself) 6 cups of cooked black-eyed peas are great in this dish as well! I like ED Smith's sugar-free syrup for this, but use your favourite or the real thing if you have no sugar issues. 1/2 the recipe is hearty, healthy and delicious meal for 4 when served on some grainy rolls with a salad.
