This is a recipe creation that I did because of a special request from my son. I think he got the idea from TV or something. Anyway, it makes for a fun and kid friendly meal that is completely whole food plant based. It is made with whole grains, legumes, veggies, and it is oil-free. I usually serve mine over a baked potato for myself and the waffles for my kids! Using pre-cooked lentils will help this recipe come together in a flash, perfect for busy nights.
Sloppy Joe filling:
2 cans lentils, drained – or about 2 1/2 cups cooked lentils
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 c. diced bell pepper, I use red since it’s sweeter
1/2 c. ketchup
1 Tbsp. worcestershire sauce (vegan)
1 tsp. mustard
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Saute onion and pepper in the bottom of a pot using small amounts of water to keep it from sticking to the bottom. When veggies are tender add all other ingredients, stir, and warm throughout.
1c. whole wheat pastry flour
1c. non-dairy milk
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Stir all ingredients together and cook in a waffle maker. This recipe makes 2 large waffles in my waffle maker.
