> 1 cup dried lentils
> 6 russet potatoes
> 1 green bell pepper
> 2 tbsp olive oil
> 1/2 cup diced onion
> 1/2 cup diced carrot
> 1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
> 1 tbsp soy sauce
> 1 tbsp brown sugar
> 1 tsp garlic powder
> 1/2 tsp chili powder


Prepare the lentils according to package directions in water or vegetable stock. Meanwhile, pierce potatoes all over with a fork and microwave on high for 10 min., flipping once, or until tender. Dice the bell pepper.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat and sauté the onion, carrot, and diced bell pepper until tender, about 6 min. Add the tomato sauce along with the remaining ingredients and simmer, 15 min. or until sauce has thickened and reduced slightly.
Once lentils are cooked, gently toss them into the tomato mixture and simmer until mixture is warmed through, about 5 min. more. Meanwhile, cut a slit into each potato. Top tomatoes with veggie sloppy Joe sauce.
