I've been on a sloppy joe kick lately. This lentil sloppy joe is easy to throw together, has a flavorful, firm texture, and is packed full of protein. It's also good to smother a baked potato, it's so good! Today I improvised a little and threw in cooked brown rice and some crushed walnuts. Feel free to experiment! From Naturally Ella.

Directions

  1. In a large skillet or pot, heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Add minced onions, pepper, and garlic. Cook until onions and peppers are soft and fragrant, 6-8 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and let cook until lentils are tender but not breaking down, 25-30 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings while cooking.
  2. Serve on a bun or toasted bread.
