These hearty, overstuffed sandwiches are a childhood favorite turned plant-based and wholesome. Lentils are coated in a bold, sweet sauce, then spooned onto buns—just as sloppy as ever, without the meat! A little massaged kale (which is a great trick to season and soften raw kale) can be served on the side or piled atop the sandwich filling.

I was lucky enough to have been raised by one of those legendary Southern grandmothers who cooked with great skill and no recipes. Even when my cooking veered drastically away from Southern for a few years, she was always open to what I prepared and would taste anything."Learn More...
