ASSEMBLY:

Put the coconut oil in your soup pot.  Saute the vegetables with the spices over medium heat for several minutes.  Add the rest of the ingredients.  Simmer covered for about an hour, until the lentils are cooked.  Portion in 1/2 to 1 pint glass wide mouth freezer jars.  Makes about 8 1/2 pints.

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.
