      This was OK, but I didn't love it. It was very sweet. I love the idea that it's made with lentils instead of meat. I did take another reviewer's suggestion and added some apple cider vinegar. Surprisingly my toddler daughter loved it, so that's a bonus.

      This wasn't a bad recipe, just not what I think of when I think of Sloppy Joe flavor so I did tweak mine quite a bit with ketchup, mustard, and a bit of BBQ sauce. I do absolutely LOVE the idea of using lentils instead of meat and everyone in my family gobbled them up! I think next time, I'll stick with my regular spice mixture but keep the lentils! Thanks so much!

      It was very good but too much sugar. Next time I will try using half the amount of sugar. I used two onions instead of 1 and red lentils instead of brown lentils. Good vegetarian dish.
