Sloppy Lentils

Years ago when our son was little we ate a vegan diet for a couple of years and during that time one of his favorite dishes was Sloppy Lentils. He had had Sloppy Joes at a friend's house and wanted me to make that at home. Since we weren't eating meat then I had to be a little creative so Sloppy Lentils worked just fine on a whole wheat bun! This dish is also good over baked potatoes or brown rice.

Sloppy Lentils

Servings:  6-8
2 cups dried lentils
1 large chopped onion
1 carrot, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
4 cups water
4 cups tomato sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (combo of basil, oregano and thyme)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Place lentils and vegetables in a large pot with the water.  Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes longer.
