A vegetarian version of sloppy joes

Top Review by SugarJen

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.
