Lentil Sloppy Joes

Lentil Sloppy Joes

2 Cups Cooked Red Lentils
Garlic, chopped
1 TS Chili Powder
1/2 TS Salt
1/4 TS Cinnamon
2 TB Brown Sugar
Tomato Sauce
1 Cup Water
1 TB Apple Cider Vinegar
2 TB Soy
1 TB Tomato Paste

SauceStart by mixing everything together except for the lentils in a medium sized pot. Stir thoroughly and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 minutes.


Once the sauce has come together, add the UNCOOKED lentils and let cook in the sauce for no more than 15 minutes – adding water as needed if it gets too thick. This allows the lentils to cook without becoming too mushy. You want a crunchy bite when you eat them.

Serve like you would a sloppy joe.
