Vegan Sloppy Joe’s

vegan sloppy joes

Growing up in the Midwest, we ate Sloppy Joe’s a lot! They were one of my favorite sandwiches and my mom made them a lot, especially for parties and potlucks and they were always a hit! My mom handed down here Sloppy Joe’s recipe and we still make them all the time except now we make them vegan. They’re still a hit at potlucks and much healthier than the meatier version!

They can be made with either Gardein Beefless Crumbles or lentils depending on your taste. And, you can make these vegan Sloppy Joe’s in a crockpot to take a long with you, just make sure to keep it on low so the sauce doesn’t burn! Eat them on a bun with vegan mayo and pickles or topped with vegan coleslaw!
