Lentil Sloppy Joes Recipe

Lentil Sloppy Joes Recipe

A naturally sweet, smoky, and spicy tomato sauce is the star of these easy-to-make Lentil Sloppy Joes. What I love is that this recipe is a trifecta of triumph for vegan dishes. That’s because it’s tasty, healthy, and cheap. What else could we want in a recipe? Go ahead and join me as I do a little happy dance. I won’t tell anyone.

We decided to head north for the summer to escape the heat. North for us means North Dakota. You won’t go further than that while staying in the states. We’re just lucky enough to have family there. Although we did get a break from the humidity it was still warm, but we found ways to enjoy life anyways. A little bit of tennis, a little bit of hitting the trails, a little bit of Olympics watching, and a lot of eating.
