I thought these were very good lentils and the BBQ sauce is phenomenal (I'll be stealing it for other recipes- I used honey in place of the syrup). However I personally thought that baking it in a casserole dish for an hour was an unnecessary extra step as it does not ever set up into a solid lentil loaf. Perhaps I had the wrong idea, I was expecting that the bake time in the oven would have this affect but it didn't. It was still very tasty and I think it would be fun to double the sauce and perhaps make this in a crock pot. Or simply stop cooking after the lentils were ready on the stove. Thank you!
This was easy to make with a great taste. I did find that my lentils didn't soften to our liking, and they seemed a little dry. Next time I might cook them longer in the pot phase, and add a bit more liquid to the bake. Thanks, this is a keeper!
This was quite tasty. We did make it non-vegetarian by adding a bag of frozen previously cooked barbequed chicken. But this worked well. The only thing is, that I would have liked it a little saucier. I think next time I'll try to add extra vegetable broth. This is a great one, thanks!
This was my first attempt at cooking or eating lentils, and I have to say I am impressed. I love the bbq flavor and nutrition value. I cooked a large portion and dished out into single portions and froze to make several meals over rice. It reheated nicely. Thanks!
This was a different way for us to enjoy lentils. My husband thought it was a bit overly sweet for him but said he liked the concept. I didn't have a problem with it at all. So, I will do it again but with a bit less syrup. Made for Vegetarian Swap.
Sadly I only had enough maple syrup to make half the recipe. It was delicious! I used mixed lentils instead of brown since that was what I had on hand. It absorbed all the cooking liquid so I substituted vegetable broth for the reserved liquid. Made for Veg'n Swap #3.
Yummy dish! I did mess with it a tad but the barbecue flavor was the main thing here and it works so well with the lentils... why didn't I ever think of it before? I cut the time and used drained and rinsed canned lentils. Just mixed it all (with a little crushed red pepper flakes) and baked. Also, I didn't have maple syrup but didn't want that to stop me from trying this recipe, so used agave nectar instead.
I loved this! Using honey in place of the syrup. Added chipotle sauce. I also did have to add more water as it baked. Used it as a bed for grilled steaks. So tasty.
This dish was good. A little too sweet for our taste so next time I will use half the amount of maple syrup and maybe add some hot sauce. I think I will also cover the dish before baking as the lentils were a little crunchy.
Excellent lentil recipe! The only change I made was to use a passion fruit mustard. Very tasty barbecue flavour with just the right amount of sweetness. Hearty and filling. Yum! Thanks AJO!
