    This is a regular meal at my house. My teen son loves to use the barbecue lentils to make sloppy joes.

    The recipe was great as is, but would reduce the molasses a little as the brand i used was perhaps a little over the top

    Very tasty! Did not have liquid smoke, so had to make do with spices on hand (1tsp each smoked paprika, Vindaloo, brown sugar, + 2.5 tsp coconut oil). Result was a bit liquid after cooking, so added 2Tbsp each corn starch & water. Can easily see how this makes excellent sloppy joes!

    This did NOT cook in 10 minutes. It didn’t even cook in 20 minutes. Yes I followed the recipe. Yes i had the valve closed. The beans are STILL hard and all of the water is just standing. If i coukd give a negative star rating i would.

    This was delicious! I changed only: instead if baked potatoes, added little chunks of potatoes in the instapot. Instead of catsup, used spaghetti sauce. It came out creamy, the potatoes were great mixed in. Loved it.
