Hi there everybody & happy Tuesday! Remarkable feat that I’ve gotten two recipes created, shot and posted this week already… maybe I can go for a streak?
I whipped this lovely dinner up in heartbeat on Sunday for the NFL kick-off. Sloppy Joe’s is one of those dishes that everyone loves, and now this is my healthy spin on it. No one even noticed that they weren’t eating meat and let’s face it… the lentils are packed with nutrient-dense protein so I was happy to serve them to family & friends. The tomato sauce was made my from my freshly roasted tomatoes, recipe here, and it added a great tanginess along with the smoky flavor. The recipe I linked makes a wonderful soup but the first part of the recipe has how to easily roast up your tomatoes.
This recipe, made in the Instant Pot, is one of those set and forget type deals, great for a party. I left the IP on warm post cooking so that guests can grab a roll and make their own sandwiches when hunger hit. Because I’m gluten free, I added this to rice and ate it that way. I love it also topped in a salad, yes, strange but good! Leftovers are great for busy weeknight dinners and it also freezes nicely.
