Lentil Sloppy Joe


This one is a REAL crowd pleaser.  You could serve this to anyone and I would expect them to like it.  It’s got that tangy flavor that I remember from so many years ago, and the texture works really well.  The kids like it, my parents like it, and my friends like it.  Give it a try for yourself and I think you will like it too!!

The recipe is slightly adopted from the Forks Over Knives web site. (link below)  I just cut back on some of the salty stuff, and removed the sugar.  http://www.forksoverknives.com/sloppy-lentil-joes/


Lentil Sloppy Joe
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 6
  • 3 ⅓ low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 ½ cups red lentils
  • 1 15-ounce can diced fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoons braggs liquid aminos
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  1. Put 1⁄3 cup of the vegetable broth in a large pot, and add the onions and bell pepper.  Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften slightly. About 5 minutes.
  2. Add the chili powder and mix in well. Add the remaining liquid, lentils, tomatoes, and the rest of the seasonings. Mix well, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Serve over greens, on sprouted grain bread, or in a whole-wheat pita.  We usually top it with sliced avocado or a dollop of guacamole, whether it’s in a sandwich or not.

You must try this, it’s so good!
