I seriously love the play on the name! Not sure why they’re snobby though – I find them to be perfectly well-mannered, and not to mention, delicious. ;) This was actually my first experience with lentils, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised.
They were super easy to make, and inexpensive too, which is always a PLUS in my book!
Saute up some peppers, onion, & garlic
Add in your cooked lentils,chili powder, oregano, & salt
Then add in your tomato sauce + tomato paste and let everyone get acquainted.
After about 10 minutes, add in some maple syrup & yellow mustard…
…and you’ve got yourself some Snobby Joes!
(You can click here to see the full recipe – I reduced the amount of chili powder to about 1.5 tbsp because I’m a total wimp when it comes to anything remotely spicy)
Served along with some steamed green beans, yellow beans, & baby carrots (with a little fresh gahhlic.)
Unfortunately, I couldn’t quite convince the hubby to join me with this meal. He gets pretty freaked out by beans, so he decided to pass. I told him that I was going to force him to at least try a bite, which he hesitantly obliged — after some silly & disgusted faces, the final comment was, “It has really good flavor…but I still hate beans”
Oh well…. :oops: Maybe next time I’ll have to try to make some for him with some beef!
We were also trying to figure out if the lentils were cooked long enough? Like I said, I’ve never cooked lentils before, so I have no idea what the texture is supposed to be like? These were still fairly firm…so for my lentil-eating readers: What should I expect from cooked lentils??
The hubby and I are off to a bonfire in a few minutes to celebrate our friend Erika’s birthday! I’m secretly hoping that they have some s’mores!!!
