It took me several tries to perfect my own version of vegan Sloppy Joe filling.  The last attempt set my mouth on fire!  Technically, it’s a bit too thin to use as a sandwich filling.  It’s more like a thick soup.  You can adjust the water quantity if you like.

I’m avoiding processed grains, so I chose to eat my creation over boiled, mashed sweet potato instead of bread.  This is Plant Powered NSNG (No Sugar No Grains).  PPNSNG.

Sloppy Lentils Over Sweet Potato, with Avocado

Sloppy Lentils Over Sweet Potato, with Avocado

INGREDIENTS:

Coconut oil

6 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
2 green peppers, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
20 crimini mushrooms, sliced

dash garlic powder (I like garlic!)
1/4 t black pepper
1/2 t BBQ seasoning blend (Omit if you don’t have it. I found mine in the bulk spices area of my food Co-op)
1 t salt
3 t chili powder
4 t oregano

2 cups lentils, rinsed (I like to use a combo of red and green)
1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes with basil
4 cups water
1 vegan broth cube

2 T mustard

ASSEMBLY:

Use a large soup pot.  Use about 1/2 T oil to saute the veggies and spices for several minutes on medium heat.  Add the lentils, tomatoes, water and broth cube.  Simmer covered for 1/2 hour.  Add the mustard and simmer for another 1/2 hour, until the lentils are fully cooked.  Turn off the stove and let rest uncovered for 10 minutes.  Freeze in 1 pint size wide mouth canning jars.  Makes about 7 pints.
