Sharon's Healthy Recipes


3 c. lentils
water to cover
2-3 T. whey or apple cider vinegar
2  small onions, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2-3 T. coconut oil
4 c. tomato sauce
1 (28 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 (7 oz.) can tomato paste
1 1/2 c. barbecue sauce
6 T. sucanat
3 T. apple cider vinegar
3 T. chili powder
1 T. dry mustard
salt and pepper, to taste
grated cheddar or parmesan cheese, to serve


Place lentils in a bowl with whey or vinegar and cover with water, leaving to soak for 6-8 hours. When ready to cook, drain and rinse, then place in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and let simmer around 30 minutes, or until soft.

While the lentils are cooking, saute onion and garlic in coconut oil until soft. Add remaining ingredients (except cheese) and simmer until heated through.  Drain lentils and add to sauce mixture; taste and adjust seasoning as necessary. Top with cheese and serve over brown rice, sprouted bread, or mashed cauliflower.
