Sloppy Joe's

Found this recipe awhile ago in my copy of the Veganomicon but I finally decided it was time to try it out. Made a few edits to the recipe, and it turned out mighty tasty!

1 cup cooked lentils
1 green pepper, diced
1/4 cup onion, diced
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 1/2 cups tomato sauce
2 tbsp maple syrup
Olive/veggie/grapeseed/etc oil

1. Heat a few tablespoons of oil in a medium pot. Heat pepper and onion for about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another 2 minutes.
2. Add lentils and sauce and mix. Let heat for 10 minutes.
3. Add maple syrup and stir.
4. Serve on top of your favorite hoagie roll. I added shredded lettuce for a bit of a crunch.

  1. Searching the back archives for recipes. Commenting to give this post a high-five. Love these lentils. Especially on a hamburger bun.
