Sauté the onion, garlic, green pepper, and carrots in 3 tbsp water over medium heat for 5-6 minutes until soft (adding more water as necessary so the veggies don't stick).
Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, vegan worcestershire sauce (or balsamic and molasses), liquid smoke, mustard and oregano. Bring to a low boil, decrease heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
Taste and add salt/pepper (or more worcestershire sauce or liquid smoke) if necessary.
Add in the cooked lentils and stir until evenly coated. Simmer for another 10 minutes.
Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.
