BBQ Lentils with Tomatoes and Green Tomatillos

Tiffany Bannworth


This could be served as a side, but on this particular night it was served as the main course.

I really prefer this recipe with lamb broth, but short of making your own, I doubt you will be able to find any.

I made my lamb broth from a tbone from a lamb steak and the bone from a lamb shank... water and a little salt. Sometimes I throw in a little bit of vegetable scraps in a cheesecloth.

Either way you do it, please enjoy!
