BBQ Lentils

It's strawberry season in Florida, you know what THAT means?? STRAWBERRY ONIONS ARE BACK!

I look forward to strawberry season because they grow these wonder, sweet onions around the perimeter of the strawberry fields for extra money. You can only find them at produce stands so they are a real treat! They cook up beautifully and don't burn your eyes like regular Vidalia onions. 

I used them in this yummy BBQ Lentil recipe.....

BBQ Lentils

1 cup dry lentils, green or brown
3 cups water
1 cup BBQ Sauce
1 tablespoon honey
Couple shakes of garlic salt

In a medium saucepan, bring lentils and 3 cups water to boil. Simmer until tender, around 20 minutes. Drain off excess water. Combine lentils with BBQ sauce, honey and garlic salt. Simmer 4 to 5 minutes to heat through.

Serve over rice or bread!
