little kai loves his joes
5 minute meal for kids... sloppy joes!
and you can get most of the ingredients pre-packaged!
believe it or not...
manwich sloppy joe sauce is vegan! woohooo!
some other brands may also be, but you always need to check the ingredients for anchovies!
the only challenge in assembling your joes is determining what to use in place of the ground beef. you can use reconstituted tvp or tsp, boca crumbles, morningstar crumbles, crumbled tempeh, lentils, or pretty much anything that will give you that great, hearty texture.
my personal favorite is trader joe's beefless ground beef-- joe's in my joes. lol.
even the meat-eater in the house likes it!
another tasty option is to saute some sweet vidalia onions and toss them in with your "beef" mix.
throw it on a bun... and patiently wait by with a wash rag to clean up the messy, happy faces =]
i will post a from-scratch sloppy joe recipe at a later date =]
