These vegetarian sandwiches are a lot less messy than traditional sloppy Joe’s, and in my opinion, tastier too.
Sun Oven Lentil Sloppy Joe’s
1 3/4 cups vegetable broth
1 cup dried lentils, picked over and rinsed
1 small onion, diced
1 jalapeño chile pepper, seeded and diced

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Set Global Sun Oven out to preheat.
Combine broth, lentils, onion, jalapeño, and garlic in a pot. Cover and cook in Sun Oven until lentils are tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Whisk together ketchup, salt, molasses, brown sugar, Worcestershire, mustard, and vinegar; add to lentils in pot and continue cooking in Sun Oven for another 30 minutes. Serve lentils on whole-wheat buns with dill pickle chips.
