Sloppy Joes

I must say, there are a few foods that I miss since I became a vegetarian.  One of those was the down home quick and easy Manwich.  Now that summer is getting here, it’s that time again when you want fast and easy.  Here’s my own version of Sloppy Joes.

To begin, I make the sauce.  Mix it in a glass measuring cup, starting with the ketchup.  Measure 1/2 cup into the measuring cup.

Add 1 Tablespoon of brown sugar.

Next, add 1/2 Tablespoon of white vinegar.

Finally, add 1/2 Tablespoon of yellow mustard.

After mixing the sauce, set it aside until we need it.  Use a two quart pan and add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the bottom.

Measure out enough of the meatless hamburger to be equivalent to one pound.  I use 2 cups of the Boca crumbles.

Add 1/3 cup of finely chopped onion.

Next, add one large clove of minced, chopped or pressed garlic.

Cook the “meat” mixture until it is heated thoroughly.  You’ll have to use a very low heat and stir it frequently.

If you want to make it with hamburger instead of soy protein, just brown and drain the hamburger, onion and garlic, and leave out the olive oil.  When your mixture is completely cooked, add the sauce.

Keep heating it slowly until it is completely hot and bubbly.  Again, you’ll have to stir it frequently to keep it from sticking.

Spoon it onto a bun and enjoy.

This is one that is easy and sure to please the kids.
