Super Healthy Lentil Sloppy Joes

Category: Lentils, Healthy Recipes, Breakfast

 Ingredients List

  • 2 15-oz cans lentils, drained and rinsed (about 3 cups cooked lentils)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 stevia packets, or 3-5 tsp sugar or sweetener of choice, or to taste
  • 14 oz tomato sauce (I used no-salt-added)
  • up to 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce (or soy-free alternative)
  • optional: 1/2 an onion (diced) and 2 tsp oil


Lentil sloppy joes: If making these on the stovetop: saut̩ the onion and garlic in the oil until onion is translucent. Add lentils and spices, stir, then add all other ingredients and cook uncovered (stirring occasionally) until thick like sloppy joe filling. If making this in the microwave: add all ingredients to a large microwave-safe dish (minus the onion and oil, which you wonӪt use with this method). Microwave until it boils, stir, then repeat the process until it is thick like sloppy joe filling. Makes about 5 cups.
