  • 1 cup dry lentils, added to 2 cups water
  • 1 cup onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup green pepper, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp mustard
  • ¼ cup ketchup
  • 1 - 14 oz can no-salt added tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp BBQ sauce
  • 1-2 packets of stevia, or sweetener to taste (optional)
  1. First, cook the lentils. Boil 2 cups of water (or veggie broth) and add the 1 cup dry lentils and turn down to a simmer (with the lid on). Cook until all the water is absorbed and the lentils are softened (about 15 minutes).
  2. In a large skillet, mist it with oil or cooking spray. Add the onions, green pepper and saute. Add in the garlic and saute until the onions are translucent and the green peppers are softened.
  3. Add in the mustard, ketchup, tomato sauce, chili powder, BBQ sauce and stevia (if using).
  4. Add in the lentils and simmer together for about 5-6 minutes. Adjust seasoning if needed with salt/pepper.
  5. Serve with whole grain hamburger buns.
