Lentil Sloppy Joes

Lentil joes are a staple in our house. They are easy, nutritious, gluten-free, and my kids love them. They usually take about an hour to simmer to gooey perfection on the stove top though, so I thought i’d try these in the solar oven. The original recipe is from The China Study Cookbook (I think…). Below is my version:

Lentil Sloppy Joes

Serves 4-6

3.5 cups water

1 chopped onion

1 bell pepper, chopped

2 Tbsp chili powder

1.5 cups lentils

1 28 oz can diced or crushed tomatoes

2 Tbsp liqiod Amino’s

3 Tbsp mustard

2 Tbsp vinegar

Stir together all ingredients and cook covered in your solar oven for about 3 hours. Ours cooked for 4 hour and was yummy. Serve over rice.
