Bbq Lentils

June 3, 2017

Here in Michigan, when the spring and summer months hit, I hate being inside. The warm weather doesn’t last very long here, so when it does come, I want to be outside enjoying the sun. The downside to this is that my time in the kitchen takes a hit, which is why I love slow cookers. I’ve praised the benefits of the slow cooker before, and I’m telling you, if you don’t have one, you need one. Sloppy Joes are a great summertime meal, they’re quick, easy, you can easily double the recipe and have leftovers for a midweek dinner. Here’s my spin on the traditional sloppy joe I’ve used lentils as the protein source, so this a great vegetarian meal, and if you want to make this recipe vegan, go ahead and leave out the Worcestershire sauce and steak sauce, and just put in 1 Tbsp. of soy sauce.
