Looking for some yummy meatless meals to add to your mix? I was a vegetarian for 12 years and used to live off lentils, beans and legumes! This recipe is similar to my lentil tacos, but makes a great “sloppy joe” alternative! It does have a little more of a chili taste, but you could experiment with adding more tomato paste into the mix!
Mushrooms are a great source of Vitamin D, a low-starchy vegetable, anti-inflammatory properties, and rich in many vitamins & minerals!
If you aren't a fan of mushrooms, this one isnt a very "mushroom-y" dish, the sloppy joe mix takes over. Chop the mushrooms very small to help disguise them.
Add oil, onion, mushrooms, lentils to large skillet. Turn on medium- low heat.
Add all remaining ingredients, adding water 1/2 cup at a time. Keep on low heat until lentils have softened, 15-20 minutes.
Add more water as needed, as lentils will absorb the water to continue to soften.
Lentils should hold their shape, but not be crunchy.
Serve over sprouted toast with a side of veggies!
The seasoning packet I chose had more of a ‘chili’ taste than a sloppy joe, but it was still delicious!
