Vegan Sloppy Joes

September 6, 2016

Author Notes: As a kid, Sloppy Joes used to be the highlight of my evening when my mother cooked it. I tried to mimic one of my favorite childhood meals by adding more natural ingredients. I used beyond meat crumbles for the "meaty" texture in this recipe. If you're wanting to rid you diet from any processed food, you can also substitute this for an extra can of beans and hearty mushrooms.handsandforks
