Gushing with goodness kids of all ages will love, our Hearty High-Protein Lentil Sloppy Joes are a healthy, quick-to-make answer to weeknight dinner woes. Fast-cooking lentils make this a nutrient dense dish you can have on the table in under 40 minutes. Don’t have that kind of time? For nights where even a quick make isn’t quick enough to feed the kids, this make-ahead mainstay shines.
Seasoned with classic sloppy joe ingredients, this tomatoey tummy-filler is even tastier the next day. But that’s far from the only reason our Hearty High-Protein Lentil Sloppy Joes will become your go-to make-ahead. This recipe’s ability to multiply is limited only by the size of your largest pot—and it freezes beautifully! Whether you set aside several sanity-saving portions to get you through the month ahead, or make a batch big enough to feed a family of hungry, hollow-legged teens, our lentil sloppy joes have you covered. Scale up even more with a side of tater tots.
Kids of all ages will enjoy pitching in to build their own joes, just the way they like them. Feel good about the filling them up with plant-based protein. Slop the works atop our Sprouted Whole Grain Burger Bun with Sesame Seeds, and smile amidst the chaos knowing they’ll have fuel to keep going for hours. Now, get your sloppy joe face on and open wide!
