  • 2 cups water
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 clove garlic minced

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 400ยบ. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add sausages to baking sheet. Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes, until sausages are crispy and very browned. Remove from oven and set aside.
  2. Add lentils to saucepan with 2 cups filtered water. Bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat and cook for 15-20 minutes until lentils are totally soft and just starting to break apart. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a skillet, warm oil over medium heat. Add the onion, pepper and garlic and cook until onion is just starting to brown. Stir in half the can of tomatoes, Red, salt and pepper. Stir together to combine, then crumble in sausages. Add lentils and stir to combine. Mixture will be thick and chunky; for a sloppier sauce, add the full can of tomatoes. Cook for five minutes for mixture to thicken a bit more. Remove mixture from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  4. Toast buns according to package directions. Add White to bottom bun, top with a few spinach leaves, and divide Sloppy Joe mixture onto buns. Top with Aloha Kraut and more spinach. Enjoy immediately, or keep leftover Sloppy Joe mixture in an airtight container for up to a week.
