I followed the recipe for the burgers and didn't make any substitutions. I made four big burgers, each about the size of a quarter pounder. You can use either canned or dry lentils which of course require cooking first. I used dry french lentils. The recipe for the BBQ sauce looked good and decided to make it. I am glad I did as it adds to the flavour of the burger and it is a sauce that could be used to baste other things. I did not add the chipotle powder nor the turmeric. I like turmeric but that spice bottle is empty and I do need to fill it up again with turmeric. These burgers can be grilled but I made them in the oven. The oven temperature was set at 375 degrees F and I baked the burgers for about 45 minutes. I basted the upside of the burger and after 25 minutes I flipped them and basted the second side. I think they could have been baked for less time but I was also baking the fries in the oven at the same time so it was all about timing. I have attached the link for the recipe after the photographs.
