Rinse the lentils thoroughly and place in a pot with 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer for approximately 20 minutes. Be careful not to overcook, as the lentils will continue cooking with the other ingredients.

While the lentils are cooking, prepare the vegetables. In a separate large pan over medium heat, sauté the onion, pepper and carrot in water for 5-10 minutes. Add the garlic, chili powder and paprika. Cook and stir constantly for 2 minutes.

Drain the lentils and add them to the onion veggie mixture. Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer over medium heat for 20-30 minutes.

Serve on whole wheat bun with desired toppings.
