Another crazy day around here yesterday. The twins decided they didn’t need a nap, so, of course, nothing got done in our house.
I had big plans for making a quiche with the swiss chard that’s coming up in the garden, but no time to make it. So, we had one of our favorite easy dinners. Lentil Sloppy Joes. The “joes” need to spend a bit of time cooking on the stovetop, but they require very little hands-on time.
I wish I had a picture for you, but the kids ate it too fast! :)
Lentil Sloppy Joes
1 cup lentils
2 cups water
3 medium carrots, diced
4 stalks celery, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp sugar/evaporated cane juice
1 tbsp molasses
2 tbsp soy sauce
Combine lentils and water in large sauce pan. Bring to a boil and then cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and continue to simmer on medium low heat for about 30 minutes more until lentils are soft and no liquid remains.
Serve on pretzel rolls! Yum!
