This is the recipe from Veganomicon, unchanged. Isa calls it 4-6 servings, so I split the difference and listed it as 5. This is the recipe from Veganomicon, unchanged. Isa calls it 4-6 servings, so I split the difference and listed it as 5.
Number of Servings: 5


    1 cup uncooked lentils
    4 cups water
    1 tblsp olive oil
    1 medium yellow onion, small dice
    1 green bell pepper, small dice
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    3 tblsp chili powder
    2 tsp oregano
    1 tsp salt
    1 (8-oz) can tomato sauce
    1/4 cup tomato paste
    2-3 tblsp maple syrup
    1 tblsp prepared yellow mustard


1. Pour the lentils and water into a small saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil; once the mixture is boiling, lower the heat and simmer for ~ 20 minutes, until the lentils are soft. Drain and set aside.

2. About 10 mins before the lentils are done, preheat a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Saute the onion and pepper in the oil for about 7 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and saute for a minute more.

3. Stir in the cooked lentils, chili powder, oregan, and salt. Add the tomato sauce and tomato paste. Cook for about 10 minutes. Add the maple syrup and mustard and heat through.

4. Turn off the heat and let the pot sit on the warm burner for about 10 minutes so that the flavors can meld.

  • This is similar to a pasta sauce I'd made a few weeks ago. The lentils are a fantastic alternative to the ground turkey we've been using for quite some time now, & the maple syrup is a great acid cutter. The only thing I would add is worcestershire sauce. I use it in everything. - 8/6/13

  • Loved it! My husband (lifelong veggie) and 3 of my 5 kids loved it too. The other two are still begging for chicken nuggets (sigh). - 1/14/12

  • Delish! Made it according to recipe, except for the tomato paste as I was out. Didn't suffer for lack of it. It freezes really well and comes back wonderfully in the office microwave! - 6/26/10
