Spicy, tangy buffalo sauce with a kick of protein from red lentils! Easy to make and home, and way better than the stuff from the bottle.
Ingredients: 2 teaspoons brown sugar,½ tablespoon chili powder,½ teaspoon garlic powder,½-1 teaspoon ground cayenne,¼ cup hot sauce,1 tablespoon olive oil,½ teaspoon onion powder,½ cup split red lentils, picked through and rinsed,2½ teaspoon smoked paprika,1½ cups water (for cooking the lentils)
Instructions: Combine the lentils and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes. The lentils will break apart and become mushy – that’s the goal! Rinse and drain thoroughly.,Combine the lentils in a blender with all other ingredients. Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust heat/spice levels as needed.
