Vegan Sloppy Joes

Although I eat primarily raw I still enjoy a fabulous home-cooked vegan meal every now and then. This is one that I made sure to partake in and I was so glad I did! I can’t say I have ever had a ‘real’ sloppy joe, but so far I have never met a vegan one that I didn’t love! This was so comforting and warm and most importantly yummy!! You can serve it on buns for a more authentic take, but I didn’t want all that bread and the wraps really did the job. This dish was surprisingly super quick and easy in the kitchen 🙂 Enjoy!

Vegan Sloppy Joes

1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
16 ounces of veggie soy crumbles (I used Morningstar)
6-8 ounces of tomato paste
1/4-1/2 cup water
2 heaping Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 onion, chopped
2 roma tomatoes or 1 large tomato, chopped
1 tsp. Dried Oregano
1 tsp. Chili Powder
2 Tbsp. organic ketchup
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
Salt and Pepper, to taste
buns or tortillas

  1.  Heat olive oil in a (non teflon) saucepan and add the soy crumbles to let brown. Stir for 2 minutes to prevent burning.
  2. Add the brown sugar and tomato paste and mix well, adding water to bring to thick but smooth consistency.
  3. Mix in the mustard, onion, and tomatoes.
  4. Once well combined add the oregano and chili powder, ketchup and rice vinegar and stir.
  5. Season with the salt and pepper.
  6. Serve on toasted sandwich buns or in heatede tortillas.
