Lentil Sloppy Joes

{ 08.29.2010 - Eleanor's Kitchen - Lentil Sloppy Joes }
{ Recipe from Vegan Dad

  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 rib celery, chopped
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 cup red lentils, rinsed
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups water (more if needed)
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce (optional)
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Tabasco sauce to taste


  1. 1. Heat oil in a frying pan over med-hi heat. Saute onion, celery, green pepper, and oregano for 5-7 mins, until onion is translucent and pepper has softened.
  2. Add lentils and mix well. Add ketchup, 1 1/2 cups water, vinegar, Worcestershire (if using), sugar, salt and pepper, and Tabasco.
  3. Bring to bubbling, then reduce heat, and cover. Cook for about 30 mins, stirring regularly, adding more water if needed until lentils are cooked but still hold their shape.
  4. Serve on toasted rolls, open-faced if you want. 
I love Vegan Dad's website. So many good food to try, and they're all VEGAN!!! I used to be vegan before I met my husband. He didn't particularly like my nutrition choice, but he dealt with it. Somehow we came to the middle and became vegetarians... and then five years later, we started to eat meat. lol. Pretty funny.Still though, I prefer vegetarian dishes over meat dishes.

Nonetheless, the recipe above is pretty decent - kid friendly. I couldn't find the Red Lentil Beans at the grocery store so I used regular ones.
