Barbecue Lentil Crunchies

Submitted by: RADIOACTIVEGAN

Introduction

This recipe is based on the recipe at 28cooks (http://28cooks.blogspot.com/2006/01/lenti
l-crunchies-typically-when-i-cook.html). I've switched the spices to give more of a barbecue flavor. This snack packs a nice punch of fiber and protein, perfect for a hike or day at the park. You can also use left over lentils and skip the boiling step.

  • I made this last night, it isn't very crunchy. I used parchment paper and I had no trouble with sticking. I will skip the oil next time to get a crunchier result. I made a double batch and used Italian Seasoning on one. It tastes great! The other is sweet w/only that little sugar. I was surprised. - 7/10/08

  • These were good! They were a little dry but I think I may have over cooked them. - 2/20/08
