Red Lentil Sloppy Joes

I am continuing to focus on vegetables, grains, and fruits (i,e., no soy). So, even though I found burger crumbles at the store, I was really excited to try Sloppy Joes with beans instead.
The verdict: awesome! Sweet, tangy, insanely messy, and very filling.

The recipe is from the blog Vegan Dad. I bought whole wheat hamburger buns at the grocery store, toasted them for a few minutes, added lettuce and tomato and the meal was complete.

I did have to make a few substitutions to the recipe. Instead of red wine vinegar, I used half as much balsamic vinegar. I left out the Worcestershire sauce and used white instead of brown sugar. And finally, I used Sriracha instead of Tabasco.
