Lentil Sloppy Joe’s are a plant-based twist on a classic sandwich.  They are packed with flavor and protein and loved by vegans and meat eaters alike!  If you are a meat eater, don’t be hesitant to try this recipe!  The word “vegan” can be daunting but these are delicious, and you won’t know you aren’t eating meat.  The lentils are hearty, and the sauce has a very similar taste to traditional Sloppy Joe’s.

Sloppy Joes seem to be a family tradition in many households but we always forget about them when deciding what to have for dinner. They are quick and easy to make, yet fairly inexpensive because you tend to have many of the ingredients already in your pantry. And for those of you with kids, they tend to be a kid-friendly option even for the picky child, so it’s a win for everyone. Needless to say, now that we’ve made them once they will become a recurring meal in our house. I don’t eat red meat so I like to use ground chicken instead. Ground chicken tends to have a little less fat and little more protein than ground beef so it’s also a slightly healthier option. The consistency between the ground chicken and ground beef is very similar, or so I’m told by Andrew because he’s the only one that would … Continue reading
