Recipe For Sloppy Lentils


Here is a meatless Sloppy Joe. It can be made as I have indicated in the recipe, with a can of Manwich sauce or you can do it all from scratch with more tomato sauce, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar and pepper. I happened to have the Manwich, so that is the route I went.

I served them over rice and gluten free for me, but my kiddos ate them as a filling in hamburger buns. Lentils are a really meaty legume, so it was almost like using ground beef, but a whole heck of a lot cheaper.
