Lentil Sloppy Joes

I have been really enjoying Lentil Sloppy Joes. I had it for supper last night and again for breakfast this morning on toast. It is SOOO good.

Here is the recipe:

Lentil Sloppy Joes


Serves 6-8

* 1 cup red lentils
* 2 cups water
* 1 tbsp olive oil
* 1 cup diced onion
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 1 cup diced red bell pepper
* 3 tablespoons chile powder
* 2 teaspoons dried oregano
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 8oz can tomato sauce
* 1/2 cup tomato paste
* 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup
* 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
* 4-6 kaiser rolls


1. In a small saucepan, combine lentils and water.
2. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer 15-20 minutes, until tender but still a bit of bite left to them.
3. In the meantime, heat olive oil in medium pan. Add onion and bell pepper, and saute for 3-5 minutes, until slightly tender.
4. Add remaining ingredients, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until lentils are done.
5. Add lentils to pot, allow to simmer just a few minutes more, and serve.

I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
