vegan sloppy joes

{ about this recipe }

Aka ‘Sloppy Lentils‘ or ‘Vegan Bar-B-Q‘. This super fast and easy-to-prepare dish is a satisfying and munchy meal for a crowd or a midnight refrigerator raid. I like it either served hot on a toasted bun or cold in a bowl. It is a rich source of protein fiber, iron, and  lycopene anti-oxidants.

{ how to make it }

combine all the ingredients and adjust the moisture content with watery ketchup if necessary. … you can serve immediately or simmer for a bit to further ‘set’ the flavors
