Crock Pot Lentil "Snobby" Joes


Lentils are my new favorite discovery! These were so delicious, they taste just like sloppy joes and without ground beef or your favorite can of sloppy joe sauce! Sorry about the bad picture, I didn't bother to try and find good ingredient hamburger buns, I'm sure they exist but we were happy using our favorite honey whole wheat bread from Great Harvest. Recipe from simple healthy tasty
-4 cups water
-2 cups lentils, rinsed
-1 onion, chopped
-2 garlic cloves, minced
-1 green bell pepper, chopped

Put all the ingredients above in your crock pot and cook on high for 3 hours or until lentils are soft. Then add....

-1-2 tablespoons chili powder
-2 teaspoons mustard powder
-2 tablespoons molasses
-4 tablespoons Sucanat
-3 teaspoons sea salt
-3 teaspoons vegetable broth powder  (I cut that recipe in half and it lasts a long time)
-1 can diced tomatoes
-1 can tomato paste
-2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar.

With everything added, cook for at 1 more hour to let the mixture thicken, leave uncovered if desired. Serve on whole grain buns or bread! 

Pin It!

  1. Meka I didn't know you were so into health and nutrition! So awesome! We try to eat this way too, however I feel like after being gone for two months it's hard to get back in the swing of things:) You should try out some of our local farmers markets, the Wheaton French Market is our favorite. I get honey there from a bee keeper and I get my produce there to last me the whole week. I think you'd like it!
