Barbecue Baked Lentils

Barbecue Baked Lentils Recipe
Use all your favorite baked bean ingredients–onion, ketchup, maple syrup, and mustard–but use lentils instead of kidney or pinto beans. The earthiness of the lentils is a good match for the smokiness of grilled meats.

3 cups water
2 cups dried brown lentils
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1 cup diced onion

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine water, lentils, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 20 minutes. Drain lentils in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid.

Combine lentils and diced onion in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Combine 1/4 teaspoon salt, reserved cooking liquid, ketchup, and the remaining ingredients. Pour the ketchup mixture over the lentil mixture, stirring to combine. Bake at 350° for 1 hour.
