Vegan, Gluten Free Sloppy Joes

Yield: 4 servings

  • 2 tablespoons of organic extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped crimini mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup cooked French green lentils
  • 2 cups crushed tomatoes or chunky tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tamari
  • 2 teaspoons vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Heat the olive oil, mushrooms, onions and celery over medium heat in a large skillet. After sauteeing for 8 minutes, add garlic and cook for 2 minutes longer. From there, carefully fold in the tomatoes or tomato sauce, lentils, tamari, vinegar, Worcestershire, mustard, cinnamon and chipotle powder. Cover the pot and reduce heat to low-medium. Simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
