As a kid, I was always excited for school lunches. School lunch meant foods like pizza, peanut butter bars, and lots of other stuff that we just didn’t have very often (if ever) at home.
One of my favorite lunches was sloppy joes. I loved those sloppy joes. Of course, it wasn’t cool to say that you actually liked them, but I did. And I still do. There’s just something about a sweet and tangy sloppy joe that I really like.
I wanted to find a way to make them a little healthier, though, so I added some extra veggies and some lentils. If you’ve never had lentils before, this is a great way to try them out because they just blend right in and don’t take away from all the delicious sloppy joe-ness goin’ on.
