Lentil and Vegetable Sloppy Sams

Tonight's supper started out early, with really good intentions.

I mixed up some bread dough WAY earlier in the day, so I could make fresh bread for supper.

And then, I got distracted. I forgot about supper and decided to try to make chocolate chip mandelbread without eggs.

The mandel bread worked out JUST FINE. Actually, more than just fine. Really yummy!

Funny thing, people still thought we should have supper!

So I threw that bread dough into the oven as dinner rolls, and then quickly made sloppy sams.

Sloppy Sams (Lentil and Vegetable)
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 carrots, diced
1 small red pepper, diced (use green, they are cheaper, I just had one in the house for some reason)
any other vegetables you want to use up, diced.
Cook veggies in a large skillet in olive oil, till onions are browned.
Add 2 c red lentils (sorted and rinsed)
tomato paste, water, and spices/seasonings of your choice (I repurposed some leftover sweet and sour sauce from earlier in the week, and added some cayenne pepper)
More water
Simmer it all together till the lentils are all soft. You will likely need to add some more water while it's cooking, unless you have a really huge pan to begin with...

Serve on dinner rolls, and ENJOY!

We're having some melon to go with this, too.
