Vegetarian Sloppy Joe

1 1/2 Tsp Olive Oil

1 Package of Veggie Grounds (My Personal fav is Morning Star)

1/2 Cup Onion, minced

1/4 Cup Green Bell Pepper, minced

3 Tbsp Honey

1 Can of Manwich (Chunky)

2 Tbsp yellow mustard

1 Tbsp Ketchup or Braque Sauce

1 Bay Leaf

2 Tsp Onion Powder

2 Tsp Smoked Paprika

1/4 Tsp Black Pepper

1 Tsp Ground Ginger

Dashes of Hot Sauce (optional)


Heat oil in large skillet over MED/MED-HIGH heat.

Add onions and stir until they start to brown. Then add veggie grounds breaking apart into crumbles as they cooks, about 2-4 minutes. Stir in honey, onion powered, smoke paprika, and add bay leaf. This adds flavor and cuts down on the fake meat flavor.

Reduce heat to med/med-low and stir-in can of Manwich Sauce. Add yellow mustard, Ketchup, pepper, ginger, and dash of hot sauce. Simmer 9-12 minutes or until sauce thickens to your liking. Note: sauce will thick more once cooled.

Remove from heat and serve over toasted buns.
