Lentil Sloppyjoes

sloppy joesHave I ever told you how much I love lentils? I use them in place of all of the ground beef that I used to use. Lentil tacos, lentil loaf, lentil chili…well you get the idea. 

Lentils are incredibly healthy for you. They are packed with protein and most of them are actually grown in Canada! (yea for supporting local).

While most of my beef recipes were easy to change over to lentils once we went plant-based, some recipes took a little more time than others to figure out.

My boys are so delighted that I finally perfected this recipe. I am happy too, and although these could be a bit healthier – they are awesome for those quick nights when you would rather just get takeout. 

Don’t touch the phone and make these instead.
