Veggie Filled Vegan Sloppy Joes

When creating a Sloppy Joe recipe, I wanted a little more than just ground “meat” and sauce. It seems so…bare.

So I gathered some of my favourite veggies, added them to the mix and voila!

Veggie Filled Vegan Sloppy Joes

  • 340g veggie ground round (like Yves)
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sweet potato, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 3/4 cup organic ketchup (use a full 1 cup if you want it a little more moist)
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Add the veggie ground round, green pepper, red pepper, sweet potato, onion and garlic to a large skillet pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil on low-medium heat. Cook about 8-12 minutes, or until browned.

Once browned, add the ketchup, oregano, brown sugar, sea salt and pepper and mix.

Cook on low-very low for 20-30 minutes.

Once ready, remove from heat.

Serve on your favourite type of bun (or perhaps on an english muffin if you want something with a little less bread.)
