EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

You can use whatever color lentil you can find for the recipe or any type of bean you like. You can even go with just one or the other as well.

If you can’t find mini burger buns at your local grocery store, these sloppy Joes are great on soft dinner rolls.

I love the mild spice of poblano, but green bell pepper can be substituted.
