Because delicious & healthy aren't mutually exclusive.

Meat eaters: BEWARE. You will nibble cautiously at first, unsure as to what you are about to encounter, and then, before you even realize what is happening, you will hear yourself say, “Is there enough for seconds?” And the happy answer, “Yes,” will meet your ears. Seriously. Wait for it.

Don’t believe me? My three-year-old niece came back for seconds THREE times before her mother made her stop. But I wasn’t going to deny her.

The best part of this meal? They’re lentils, people. LENTILS! I’m sure you have everything in your cupboard you need to throw these together tonight. Unless, of course, you need to purchase lentils. In which case, I strongly recommend you stock up on all varieties because lentils are about to become your new best friend.

I need to acknowledge that this deliciousness comes to us courtesy of the amazing Isa Chandra Moskowitz, my go-to-guru for all things vegan. Her original recipe can be found over at the Post Punk Kitchen.


  1. Yummers! Married to a carnivore, with one carnivore son and one veggie one, so I’m always looking for things that will satisfy us all. This looks fantastic! Just discovered your site via Cheeky Kitchen, and I’m very glad to have found you!

    1. Welcome! Welcome! I’m delighted you found me! Please come back often and be sure and let me know what you think of these snobby joes. They are ALWAYS greeted with cheers of jubilation by all the meat eaters in my life :-)

  2. The ONLY reason I gave it a 4 in the star rating was because it didn’t WOW the girls…but Gordon and I ate seconds and then leftovers the next day! Lots of flavor and very filling…I had one sandwich and was stuffed! I also did baked sweet potato wedges and a salad on the side! It was so good and I didn’t miss my old sloppy Joe’s, greasy fries, or canned green beans which is how we usually ate this meal but won’t anymore thanks to Snobby Joes!

    1. Well, I am biased in favor of these delectable sandwiches, but I can’t judge the 3 and 5 year old too harshly. These are new flavors they’re experiencing. Next time just tell them they had a 5-star experience with these before and it’ll be a distant memory!

  3. After having trouble finding red lentils in my small town, and snagging them when going to visit the big city, I finally got to grace my table with this dish. Love it! My husband loved it too, and asked if we could also replace our spaghetti sauce with this recipe, by just thinning it down a bit. Whoo Hoo!

    1. That’s FANTASTIC, Dawna! I’m so glad they were a hit at your house. I keep telling folks that lentils and chickpeas will become your new best friends; it’s amazing what miracles you can create from some very simple staples.
