veggie balls

I found this on a web site and I'm going to try these for a party I'm having
over the weekend:

Prep Time: 55 minutes
2 3/4  cups water
1/2  cup dried lentils, sorted, rinsed
1  cup uncooked instant rice
1/4  cup finely chopped onion
1  teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1/4  teaspoon salt
1/4  cup Plain Bread Crumbs
1/3  cup refrigerated or frozen fat-free egg product, thawed
1 1/3  cups barbecue sauce

In medium saucepan, combine water and lentils. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat
to medium-low; cover and cook 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add rice, onion, Italian seasoning and salt; mix well. Return to a boil.
Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until liquid is
absorbed and lentils and rice are tender, stirring occasionally.

Remove saucepan from heat; uncover and let stand 10 minutes.

Stir bread crumbs, egg product and 2 tablespoons of the barbecue sauce into
lentil mixture, mashing mixture slightly while mixing. With wet heands,
into 36 (1-inch) balls.

Spray large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over
heat until hot. Add veggie balls; cook 6 to 8 minutes or until browned on
sides, turning frequently with 2 spoons.

Reduce heat to medium; pour remaining barbecue sauce over veggie balls.
Cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently.
