Vegan Sloppy Joes

Vegan Sloppy Joes

Jill Dalton
If you grew up in America, you probably remember Sloppy Joes. Most schools would have this sandwich in regular rotation in their cafeterias. Typically it is made of ground beef and cooked in a barbecue flavored sauce and served on a hamburger bun. We have created a Plant Based Vegan version of this sandwich using crumbled tofu, onions and mushrooms to replace the ground beef and cooked it in a delicious sweet and smokey flavored sauce.

Hello, and thank you again for your enlightening work. May I make a suggestion: please widen the recipe search capability to include ingredients. E.g., searching for tofu, only 4 recipes come up. But Vegan Sloppy Joes is an example of a great tofu recipe, etc. Many thanks.

Is tofu considered a “whole” food? I hear it’s processed.
