Braised Red Cabbage Lentil Sloppy Joes | Vegetarian Sloppy Joes

Braised Red Cabbage Lentil Sloppy Joes have all the delicious flavors of a traditional Sloppy Joe, but are made with veggies in place of meat. Lentils are a good source of protein, making them a smart meat substitute.  They are also high in fiber and low in fat and carbs. Red cabbage is also a good source of dietary fiber as well as vitamin A, vitamin C potassium, and polyphenols (thought to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties). Delicious and nutritious — our favorite kind of recipe!
