This is a very unassuming meal. Sloppy joes without the meat.
- 1 cup dried lentils, picked over and rinsed
- 1 1/2 cups low sodium veggie broth
- 15oz can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes
- 1/2 bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 onion diced
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne(optional)
- 1 Tablespoon mustard
- 1/4 cup bbq sauce
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Cook onion until softened. Add in all other ingredients.
Bring to a boil, turn burner down to a simmer, cover pan and simmer until almost all of the liquid cooks off.
The lentils will be al dente and flavorful.
Serve on a bun with pickles!
Like I said, this isn’t a fancy meal, but makes 4 giant or 6 normal sized sandwiches. They have a nice flavor, simple recipe and brings back memories of childhood. They would also be great on top of a southwestern salad. This is a picture of Brian’s place. I scooped my lentils onto one slice of gluten-free bread and ate it like an open faced sandwich.
