Lentil sloppy joes

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.
