Why we love it:
Put this recipe on heavy summer rotation since it’s super quick and doesn’t require the oven. There are countless ways to have fun with the basic method and add to the filling or assembly if you’re feeling creative - or need to use up some produce drawer finds. It’s also a good candidate for a vegetarian entree for meat lovers.
- 2 15-ounce cans Green Lentils
- 1 cup BBQ Sauce
- 1 teaspoon Unsalted Butter
- 4 Brioche Hamburger Buns
- 1 cup Carrot
- 4 cups Potato Chips (or pretzels)
- 2 cups Pickles
Open and drain the lentils. Pour in a medium skillet and set over medium heat. Add the BBQ sauce, to taste, and the butter. Stir and add more or less sauce to make it as wet or dry as you like. Depending on the sauce, you may like to add a pinch of salt and pepper.
Toast if you like, or if fresh serve them soft.
Cut carrots and serve with a side of chips or pretzels. Top buns with a generous mound of saucy lentils. Top with pickles to taste and serve immediately.
