Ingredients


2 Tbsp. olive oil

1 1/2 cups onion, finely chopped

1 green bell pepper, finely chopped

8 ounces mushrooms, trimmed and pulsed in a food processor or finely chopped

2 cloves (2 tsp.) garlic, minced

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper

1 can (15 oz.) lentils, rinsed and drained (or 1 1/2 cups cooked lentils)

1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed tomato soup
(We used Campbell's condensed Tomato Soup Healthy Request.)

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup sugar free maple syrup

1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

1 cup chopped pineapple

6 whole wheat buns


This was a recipe forwarded to us from a website called ChooseVeg.com. There are all sorts of tips on how to make more vegetarian choices in your diet. If you're interested in eating healthier, it's definitely a website we recommend. We made a couple small changes to decrease the total sugar, but kept the delicious taste.

1. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and sauté the onions and green pepper for about 5 minutes.

2. Add mushrooms and continue cooking, stirring frequently for 5 or more 6 minutes. Mix in the garlic and red pepper and cook another 2 more minutes.

3. Stir in the lentils, tomato soup, soy sauce, syrup, vinegar and pineapple. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.

4. When finished, remove from heat and let sit for approximately 15 minutes, before dividing and putting on the buns. Toast the buns for a crisper taste.

Yield: 6 Servings
