Make-Ahead Turkey-Lentil Sloppy Joes

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven bring broth to boiling; stir in lentils. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Drain in a colander.
  2. In the same Dutch oven heat oil over medium heat. Add chopped yellow onions and carrots; cook for 5 to 6 minutes or until tender. Add ground turkey and garlic; cook until turkey is brown, using a wooden spoon to break up meat. Drain off any fat.
  3. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, olives, chili powder, and vinegar. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 8 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring frequently. Stir in cooked lentils; cook about 2 minutes more or until heated through.
  4. Divide into four portions. If desired, serve one portion right away (see tip, below). Cool the remaining portions completely. Transfer each portion to a freezer bag or container; seal and freeze for up to 6 months.
  5. To serve, thaw one portion in the refrigerator overnight. Transfer to a medium saucepan. Cook, covered, over medium-low heat about 5 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

To make sandwiches:

  1. Fill buns with sliced red onion (if desired), turkey mixture, and, if desired, Carrot-Date Slaw.
