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!
This Sloppy Joe recipe is full of flavour (and not to mention good for you!)
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.)
This recipes makes about 4-5 servings.
