Sloppy lentils

I love a good steak. Seriously.

But some nights I get tired of eating meat. I know it's weird, but it's just nice to eat something really clean that makes you feel not so stuffed.

There are lots of recipes for sloppy lentils online so I would recommend trying out the recipe a couple of times to modify it for your family. This is a good recipe to try.

This is a great recipe  from Passionate Homemaking blog. If you are pressed for time, you can put everything in the crockpot. 

Start early if you use a crockpot! Those dang lentils take a little while to cook. 

Question: Will your meat loving husband eat this? Yes! For one night. And then he will go back to eating meat. I mean one night is enough. However, I ate this for lunch for a week. Mmmm. 

Wash lentils and pick out any cracked lentils. 

I did't have tomato paste or molasses in my pantry so I used soy sauce and crushed tomatoes.

Add some cheese for the yum factor. 

Do you love or detest lentils?

Matt is so gracious because I could eat meat 1-2 meals a week and be good. He doesn't mind vegetarian meals most nights. Bless his heart.
