Everyday is Meatless Monday in my house since Jan 1 but this is a quick and easy meal that the kiddies will enjoy.

Lentil Sloppy Joe’s

I totally cheated by using a canned Manwich product but I was simply in a rush, this is a very easy recipe to copycat with real ingredients!
I started by adding 1 cup of dry green lentils ( you can use any kind) to 4 cups of boiling water.
Add chopped carrots – I used about 6-7 baby carrots to the same pot of boiling water
Add 1/2 chopped red pepper to the pot

Cover and reduce heat to low and let cook about 30 minutes until lentils are plumped!

Drain , then add the Manwich sauce to it.
I also added an extra squirt of Ketchup and a tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce.

Spoon onto hamburger buns and serve with smashed potatoes and corn for the ultimate comfort meal!
