Lentil Sloppy Joes

Vegan Sloppy Joes

A friend asked me to make some sloppy joes, so I created this recipe. I’m happy with how it turned out and will make it again. It was hearty and tasty. I paired it with my cajun yam fries and served on a toasted whole wheat bun.


  • 1 cup green lentils
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 15oz can fire roasted tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon yellow mustard


  1. Boil lentils in the water for 10-20 minutes until almost soft.
  2. Sauté the onion, pepper, and garlic.
  3. Add chili powder, paprika, salt, pepper flakes, tomatoes, paste, and vinegar and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, add syrup and mustard then stir.
  5. Serve and Enjoy!
