Lentil Sloppy Joes

Another meat-less meal favorite in our house. The sauce gives the familiar Manwich-in-a-can taste we all remember growing up, but this version is more flavorful and far more nutritious!

I like to serve these on smaller dinner rolls for the kids, sometimes with a slice of provolone cheese. I’ll have mine over greens.
