Vegan Sloppy Joe's A.K.A Sloppy Joe's

I love these sloppy lentils with potatoes on the side and so will the kiddy's. These are great for lunch or dinner and so much better for you than that canned crap too. Lentils are so good for you too. One serving a week can lower your cholesterol. How great is that. Lowering your cholesterol without medication. Tastes better too. 

Not only are there several kinds of lentils but there are many great benefits to them as well. Here are some of those benefits:
1. Lower your cholesterol
2. High in iron
3. Prevents constipation
4. Low in caleries
5. Reduces your risk of heart disease
6. Increases energy
7. High in fiber
8. Stablizes blood sugar
9. Protein, protein, protein

 You can take them to a BBQ too and making them ahead of time is a breeze. I use  organic ketchup in this recipe because it has no high fructose corn syrup in it. Most places carry organic ketchup now too. 

Here is what you will need:
3 cups of cooked lentils
1 large onion chopped
1 large green bell pepper chopped
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 cup organic ketchup
1/2 cup organic bbq sauce
1 tbsp organic mustard
buns, organic of course

In a saute pan, add the oil, onion and green pepper. Saute on medium heat until tender. Add the lentils and everything else. Mix everything really well. 

The potatoes are easy.  For two people, chop about 4 spuds into bite size pieces. 
Saute with 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil until golden and tender. You can add some rosemary to them too. Salt to taste.
