Sloppy Joes

1/2 cup uncooked puy lentils (or green lentils will work just as well)
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 medium white onion, diced small
1/2 red pepper, diced small
5-6 cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced (optional)
1 clove garlic, minced
1.5 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 can chopped tomatoes
1/8 cup tomato paste
1.5 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tbsp dijon mustard (or any yellow mustard)

  1. Bring the lentils to boiling point and then simmer for 20-30 minutes until soft. Rinse and drain.
  2. In a soupy pot, heat up the oil and sauté the onion, pepper and mushrooms for about 7 minutes, until soft.
  3. Add garlic and cook for another minute.
  4. Chuck in the lentils, chili powder, oregano, and salt. Stir for a minute. Add chopped tomatoes and paste. Cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Slop in the maple syrup and mustard. Leave for the flavours to infuse on the lowest heat setting for 5-10 minutes.
