Sloppy Joes Lentil Style (Vegan)
Lentil Sloppy Joes
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. And who needs meat really. This is so yummy it is sure to become your go to recipe.
