I made this and it was awesome! Sadly, my house was bunless and it was too hot to turn on the oven to make some, so whole wheat bread had to do.
I followed a great recipe from Vegan Dad, the only things I changed was using a canned organic tomato sauce in a little agave and more apple cider vinegar instead of ketchup and using a red pepper instead of green. I remember like the sauce in Sloppy Joes as a kid, but hating how greasy it was, all the animal fat and protein was not yummy to me. Like many vegetarians, cows were the first animal I stopped eating. I have used Boca crumbles to make Sloppy Joes, but it wasn’t nearly as good as the two whole foods versions I have made. I have recently created my own version using 2 cups pinto beans, 2 cups shredded carrots, and 1 cup oatmeal and it is now our favorite in texture! I think next time I will use Lentils again instead of pinto beans, since the beans were so obvious, I think the taste and size of lentils allow them to hide more in this dish!
Am I the only one who loves the look of veggies in a cast iron skillet?
Just gaze upon that bubbling yumminess! Nothing compares to creating a delicious and nutritious meal for the family! Go by Vegan Dad’s website and make this, also check out his other recipes there are tons of delicious looking foods there!
