I'm craving comfort food. It happens when it gets cold outside, at least to me!
But I didn't want to use all my calories on rich Mac n cheese or lasagne!
These bad boys HIT.THE.SPOT!
Even my 20 yr old and 16 yr old loved them! In fact my 16 yr old said they are teenager approved 😀
There is just a hint of sweetness from the coconut sugar and a nice kick from the cayenne.
These didn't last long and I think they will make another appearance very soon.
Vegan soppy Joes
2 1/2 cups cooked lentils
1 carrot chopped
1/2 red, orange or yellow pepper chopped
1 shallot chopped
1/2 head of fennel chopped
1 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped
1Tbls chili powder
1 tsp paprika
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 -1/2 tsp cayenne
1-2 tsp mustard
2 Tbls vegan Worcestershire
3 Tbls tomato paste
2 15oz cans tomato sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Sauté veggies until soft, add in remaining ingredients and simmer until done!
I usually end up adding more spices once I taste test it so feel free!
The second day I had these they were even better, but I need a bit of a crunch so I added some purple cabbage. It was a great combo and the purple cabbage doesn't have a very strong flavor so it was a great option!
Thinking next time I will make some blue cheese coleslaw to go with them.
This is an amazing delicious recipe http://www.closetcooking.com/2010/05/blue-cheese-cole-slaw.html
