Barbecue Sauce with Lentils

We were making Barbecue chicken for my hubby and was curious about something similar for a vegan
This is the barbecue sauce we have made for chicken, especially for wings or shredded BBQ chicken.

Barbecue Sauce Recipe
2 cups of ketchup
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoon liquid aminos (Braggs or Coconut)
1 tablespoon paprika
4 cloves minced garlic
1.5 teaspoon curry powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Combine in a jar and shake.

Searching the internet we found several recipes for brushing a portobella with BBQ sauce and grilling it as one would chicken.
We try to have one serving of legumes each day. This is the recipe we developed.
3/4 cup rinsed red lentils
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 onion diced
1/2 cup of barbecue sauce
1.5 cups of water

Water sauteed the mushrooms and onions. Added the rinsed lentils and water. Bring it to a boil and simmered until the lentil are soft. Stirred in the BBQ sauce and heat.

We served it on a whole grain gluten free bun. We also served it was lemon-garlic roasted asparagus.
