Sloppy Joes (lentil style)

If you tried the lentil tacos and enjoyed them, I think you'll really like these. I've been wanting to try it for a while and finally got the courage. They are really yummy. Either use the recipe below or just mix in with your favorite canned sloppy joe mix (I'm partial to the home made kind).

1 cup lentils
2 1/2 cups water
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
1 clove minced garlic
1 teaspoon mustard
3/4 cup ketchup
3 teaspoons brown sugar
s&p to taste

Boil lentils in water with chicken broth, reduce heat to medium and cook until tender, 45 minutes to an hour. In a skillet over medium heat saute onions, pepper and garlic in a tablespoon of oil. Stir in mustard, ketchup and brown sugar and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir in lentils and serve on hamburger buns.
