Sloppy Joes Lentil Style (Vegan)

In the winter time I hate to go shopping.  And when I do I tend to run out of meat quickly.  So what is a person to do? Simple, start cooking more healthy meatless meals.  There are plenty of meals out there you can make.  And after a while you will never miss the meat.

This recipe is a neat twist on the traditional Sloppy Joe’s since it is made Vegan style using lentils.  Who says you can not eat meatless and still enjoy flavors you grew up with.

Instructions
  1. Spread lentils out on a sheet and look over. Remove stones, stems and items which do not belong there. Rinse. Set aside.
  2. Add olive oil to a 2 quart sauce pot, heat on medium high. When hot add the chopped onions and celery. Cook until clear, stirring frequently. If using fresh garlic, add it now along with the spices and cook for 30 seconds until the garlic is fragrant.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer and cook covered until the lentils are done about 20 to 45 minutes. Do not overcook. If necessary, add water to maintain a good consistency or remove the lead to allow water to boil off and the mixture to thicken up. Adjust seasonings as necessary.
  4. Serve on hamburger buns if desired.

      I have made this once with the lentils. I usually make this with ground beef or into a chili. I do want to make it again soon with lentils and post some pictures.
