The New Veganism: Lentil Sloppy Joes

Well folks, I went to urgent care yesterday, and looks like I have the flu. Things may be a little quiet around here for the next few days, but fortunately I can offer you a wonderful vegan sloppy Joe recipe to feast your eyes on while I convalesce.

When my editor at Food52 first suggested sloppy Joes, I was hesitant. The only vegan version I’d tried was made with tofu, at a restaurant, and all I remembered was that it had been a little too sloppy (soggy, even). My editor and I decided we’d give lentils a try, and they worked out perfectly. They’ve got texture, chew, and they absorb liquid really well, so the Joes are sloppy but not sodden. Served on a sprouted grain bun, they are truly delightful (with a dash of sriracha or Tabasco, if you like).
