How to Make Vegan Sloppy Joes
The Sloppy Joe—a bit of nostalgia between two buns. It’s easy to assemble, and you can put potato chips on it if you want.
Servings: 2 Time: Prep: 5 minutes, Cook: 10 minutes
Recipe by: Dragged Through The Garden
- Green pepper
- White onion
- Olive oil
- Plant-based ground meat
- Hamburger buns
- Tomato paste
- Vegan Worcestershire sauce
- Salt Pepper
- Brown sugar
- Smoked paprika
- Garlic powder
- Potato chips (optional)
1. Make sure your plant-based meat is defrosted. Dice up a green pepper into small chunks, not too fine. Dice up half a white onion in the same fashion. Toss some oil in a pan and bring the flame to medium-low. Add the onion and green pepper to the pan, along with crumbled plant-based meat. Add a tablespoon of smoked paprika and a tablespoon of garlic powder.
2. Bring the flame up a little bit and stir. Once everything begins to brown, add a splash of Worcestershire, a tablespoon of tomato paste, and a generous squirt of ketchup into your mixture. Add two tablespoons of brown sugar and keep stirring. Mash up the ground meat if needed. Let the contents of your pan cook out and everything will turn a nice, deep brown color.
3. Scoop the mixture out of the pan and fit as much as you can onto a bun. Add potato chips if you want.
