The Sloppy Jill

We all know Sloppy Joe, right? He's filling, messy and tends to spend lots of time in cafeterias. But have you heard of his healthy, vegetarian and more sophisticated sister, Sloppy Jill? Probably not ... because we just invented her! The Sloppy Jill sandwich is a nutritious, low-fat and more upscale version of the classic meat sandwich we all grew up loving. Our reinvented version features lentils, which are loaded with protein and easy to digest and of course, hidden veggies! This one pot meal will leave your family asking for "more SLOPPY JILL'S PEA-LEASE!"

• 1 1/2 cup lentils
• 2 Tbsp olive oil
• 1 clove of garlic, minced
• 1/2 cup chopped onion
• 1/2 cup bell pepper
• 1/2 cup diced carrot
• 1/2 cup ketchup
• 2 Tbsp maple syrup
• 2 Tbsp chili powder
• 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
• 3 Tbsp tomato paste
• 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
• 1 Tbsp yellow mustard
• 1/2 tsp sea salt
• 1/2 tsp black pepper
• 1 cups water

The morning you plan to make this meal, leave lentils to soak in a bowl of water on your countertop. Rinse and drain the soaked lentils and place in a large pot. Fill the pot with enough water to fully submerge the lentils. Bring to a boil and let simmer for about 25 minutes or until fully cooked. Drain lentils and set aside.

In the same pot you made the lentils, in pour in oil, onions and garlic; let cook for 5 minutes over medium heat. Add bell pepper and carrot; cook for another 8 minutes. Mix in the remaining ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes. Add salt to taste. Remove from heat and allow to sit for another 10 minutes to thicken up. Serve with your favorite sandwich bread or roll. Serves 8
