|I really like how all the colored peppers add to the look of the dish. So much prettier than your run of the mill Sloppy Joes!|
2 cups cooked lentils (I usually cook mine to nearly mush as I find it very....burgery...for lack of a better term.)
1/2 onion, diced (or three tiny baby onions like the ones we grew this year)
Sweet peppers, diced (as many as you like, probably around 1-3 cups worth. Add a few spicy peppers if you wish.)
1/2 pint tomato sauce
1-2 T brown sugar
2 t white vinegar
1 T ketchup
1-2 T chili powder
Saute the onion until starting to become translucent.
Add peppers and saute a few more minutes, until tender.
Add remaining ingredients and stir until well mixed.
Serve over rolls either open-face or as a sandwich.
already posted a recipe for them. Oh well. I already wrote the post now. An really, what blog doesn't need at least TWO Sloppy Joe recipe variations?! In any case, this one is better as I think lentil are superior and the ratios better. It has more peppers, for one thing, which I always find to be a plus. It is all rather funny though since I am sure they were both modified off the same recipe.
