Sloppy Lentil Joe's~A Meatless Monday Meal

Meatless Monday rolls around every week!  I love MM, because my whole family eats meatless on that day and they know it's coming.  Yes, there is a little bit of whining, "where's the beef?"  "Is there MEAT in there?"  "Can we have chicken, please!?"  No.  Plain and simple, it will be meatless.  By the end of the meal, Shaun and Zeke are full, satisfied and they usually admit what I made was GOOD!

This week I had the pleasure of making something REALLY GOOD!  and it was REALLY SIMPLE.  I threw everything in the crockpot on my lunch hour, when I got home, BAM, it was ready!  Sloppy Joe's!  Since becoming a vegetarian almost a year ago, I have to admit there are a few "comfort" foods that I have missed.  Sloppy Joe's are one of them.  With this recipe you are going to be able to have your Sloppy Joe and eat it too!


I served the guys Sloppy Joe's on whole grain buns, with mustard, of course….I wanted to cut back on my carbs and gluten for the day, so I put the yummy mixture on a baked sweet potato!  IT was delish!

This meal made everyone happy.  It made Shaun and Zeke happy because it tasted good, it was filling, it had protein…what more could they ask for?  It made me happy because it tasted good, it was filling, it had protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and was easy on the budget!

So, print this out, hang it on your fridge and make this NEXT MONDAY, satisfy yourself and your family!

Enjoy YOUR day!

Au revoir!

  1. This actually looks like something I could try and get by with making in my house....although the groaning would definately be included..."where's the beef?".... :) Would have never thought to put it over sweet potatoes. Will have some ready in the garden soon so that will be handy. Thanks for the idea!
