Sloppy Lentils

This is made to be a vegetarian version of sloppy joes, although I like adding a little extra liquid and eating it as a soup as well. It is SO easy to make. Just dump in a crock pot and go! Delicious!!

1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 small red or green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 1/2 cups dried brown lentils, picked over and rinsed
One 14.5-oz can crushed tomatoes
3 cups water
2 Tbsp tamari or soy sauce
1 Tbsp mustard
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp salt
Black pepper to taste
Toasted rolls or buns (if eating as a sandwich)

Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper, coverand cook until softened, stirring often, for about 5 minutes. Add the chili powder, stirring to coat.

Transfer onion mixture to a 3 1/2 - 4 quart slow cooker. Add the lentils, tomatoes, water, tamari, mustard, brown sugar, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Cover and cook on Low for 8 hours.

Serve on toasted rolls with a fresh batch of coleslaw. Serves 4-6
