Cooking is so much fun but some days, you just don’t feel like doing it. That’s why we created “Lazy Lunch.” This is Plant Candy’s answer to a need for quick mid-day meals that will remind you why you decided to stop and cook in the first place. This dish was created from last night’s leftovers, black lentils, and some scallions and peppers we had in the fridge.

  3. In the meantime, add lentils, bbq sauce, liquid smoke, and spices to a pot until warm.
