lentil sloppy joes

Lentil Sloppy Joes
1 c. brown lentils, rinsed and checked for stones
1 T. olive oil
1 c. onion, chopped
1 T. garlic, minced
1 c. ketchup
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 T. yellow mustard
1 T. apple cider vinegar
1/8 t. ground ginger
red pepper flakes, to taste
sea salt + pepper

1. Sort through lentils for stones and debris. Rinse and cook in water in medium saucepan over medium heat until tender (~30 minutes).

2. Meanwhile prepare remaining ingredients. When lentils are about halfway done, saute onions in oil over medium-high heat for 8 minutes.

3. Add garlic and saute for another minute. Add ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, ginger, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Simmer until thick and dark, about 8-10 minutes.

4. Stir in drained lentils and heat until warmed through (1-3 minutes).

5. Serve on toasted buns with pickles, lettuce, and onions.
