Vegetarian Loves ME: Sloppy Joe Edition

Why do meateaters only get to enjoy the sloppiness that is a Sloppy Joe? Tonight, I mentioned making it for my hubby and he was overjoyed. So I decided to get a little creative and make myself a vegetarian version too. Both came out delicious!

Here What You’ll Need:


For the meat version:

ground meat (turkey or beef), 1 pound
roasted red pepper, chopped, 1/2 cup
roasted red pepper canning liquid, 1/8 cup
onion, chopped, 1/2 cup
garlic powder, 3/4 teaspoon
mustard, 2 teaspoons
BBQ Sauce, 2 tablespoons
ketchup, 3/4 cups
brown sugar, 3 teaspoons
salt & pepper, to taste

1. In a pot, pour roasted red pepper canning liquid (this will eliminate the need for oil).


2. Brown the meat in the pan with onion and pepper. Drain off any excess liquid.


3. Throw the rest of the ingredients in the pot. Mix well and cook on low heat for 20 more minutes.


4. Place on toasted bun with some cheddar cheese (optional) and let your meateater enjoy!


For the vegetarian version:

black beans, drained/rinsed, 1 can
roasted red pepper, chopped, 1/4 cup
onion, chopped, 1/4 cup
garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon
mustard, 2 teaspoons
BBQ Sauce, 1 tablespoons
ketchup, 4/8 cups
brown sugar, 2 teaspoons
salt & pepper
sweet potato, chopped, 1/2 cup

1. In a pot, soften the roasted red pepper and onions.


2. Toss beans into the pan to heat through.


3. Throw the rest of the ingredients in the pot. Mix well and cook on low heat for 10 more minutes.


4. Lastly, throw in the sweet potatoes and heat thoroughly (not until mushy).


Mix well.

5. Place on toasted bun with some cheddar cheese (optional) and let your vegetarian enjoy!


Now we can all enjoy the beauty of the sloppy joe!
