Lentil Sloppy Joes Monday, March 18, 2013, 08:40 PM


20130318-204052.jpgI had been wanting to try this for a bit. I basically started making normal Sloppy Joes without meat. While it was going, I cooked about 2/3-3/4 cups of dry lentils covered for a bit. I let the sloppy joe sauce simmer then, after the lentils were partially cooked (partially uncovered to cook down), I added them and let it cook. I basically stayed true to the recipe but with extra mustard, a bit of honey, splenda, lots of garlic powder and a tiny tad of Dave's Insanity (to really kick up the heat). I served it with spinach on top.

I liked it a lot. It was pretty easy and I think healthier than the regular one with beef. Last time I said it was 11 for the beef. Considering this was 9 for the lentils, I guess I didn't save too much. Still different and really good.

The green beans were done with Penzy's Sandwich Sprinkle. I started with just olive oil and the sprinkle and once it was a bit blackened, I added some water, with a lid to steam it and get it to cook all the way.
