Hi Friends! Welcome back to Healthy Grocery Girl! I loved sloppy joes as a kid and this plant-powered version is total comfort food, full of flavor as well as protein!

Vegan Lentil Sloppy Joes

Print Recipe


  • 1 15 ounce can black lentils, drained & rinsed
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes diced
  • 1 bell pepper diced
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • ½ tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon sriracha
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


  • Add the coconut oil to a large saute pan over medium heat, then add the diced onion and bell pepper. Saute for about 10 minutes until the onion turns translucent and starts to brown.
  • Next, add all of the remaining ingredients and stir everything together. If you do not like spice, add a little less or no sriracha.
  • Finally add on a lid and simmer, on low, for 20 minutes.
  • If you are making this for kids who don’t like veggies, I suggest blending the mix at this point into a sauce.
  • Finally add the lentils, stir together and heat through. Ladle onto a gluten-free bun and enjoy!
