Vegan Sloppy Joes... BAM!

So the end of last week, my children {well, all besides the Fif who was couchbound with the fever from breathing this damn airplane air for the last few months of winter} spent 2 days running out- of -doors in their shirt sleeves. {Haha Mum} Even though we are starting to feel the chilly temps again so far this week, well, those couple of days had me ready for spring!

However, before we move on to the delicious menu of vegan yummy foods available in the warm months, lets visit a quick meal that is so good on a cold day when you have NO TIME. Vegan Sloppy Joes. Ok, whatever, they are good in all 4 seasons! I know I've mentioned how much I LOVE this Fantastic Brand mix {available on} when I used it for my Vegan Chili...well, the Sloppy Joes are just as good if not better!

All the box calls for is a small can of tomato paste...and I add in the red beans, just to be the annoying mama/ wife that I am. And really, what Sloppy Joe is complete without being served on a paper plate with a side of potato chips? Terrible on multiple levels, I know.


Hey, we can't be perfect all the time...but we can sure as h*ll eat some fabulous {...and VEGAN} food!


  1. hoping fif is on the mend... did i tell you that they carry this at wegmans? the full line - i got the taco mix... but this is a must try... xo

  2. I make my Sloppy Joes out of lentils and tempeh. It is yummy.

    Thank you!
    And I did know about the Wegman's! I make a mini pilgrimage there every couple of weeks, even if for nothing besides these mixes and Earth Balance {they have the BEST prices!!}

  4. @Amanda That sounds SO good! And by far the better choice if I had to choose...but I'm telling you, for those days when you don't have time to boil lentils and all that jazz...this is one tastey substitute!


I would love to hear your thoughts...especially if they are nice! So post away friends, post away!
