  • 2 cups dry lentils (about 1 pound)
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 package (12 ounces) vegetarian hot dogs, sliced


  • Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 4 Quart.
  • Rinse the lentils and put them in the slow cooker.
  • Add the barbecue sauce, water and hot dog slices and stir to combine.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 9 hours. If possible, check every few hours during cooking and add a little more water if the lentils seem to be getting too dry. The lentils will be soft when they are done cooking.

Recipe Notes

If you're not a fan of vegetarian hot dogs, substitute your favorite fat free hot dogs (I like the ones from Hebrew National with 1 Point)
