Vegan Gluten Free Sloppy Joes

Foodie Friday

The Sloppy Joe found it’s beginning in the Great Depression when homemakers struggled to feed their families for less.  The Sloppy Joe by definition is loose meat in a tomato sauce, served over bread or between bread. 

Overtime Sloppy Joes have become a comfort food in both American and Canadian homes and while our Vegan Sloppy Joe does not contain meat it is made with loose Quinoa & Mushroom mix (click here for recipe) our meat substitute recipe.  We have also up-cycled the tomato sauce.  

  • 2 cups cooked Quinoa & Mushroom
  • 1 ½ cups of mushroom chopped
  • 1 cups of chopped onions
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 4 chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1 small can of tomatoe past
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of your favourite gluten free Italian spice mix.  We used Epicure Italian Dressing Seasoning.
  • 4 gluten free buns
  • Deep frying pan with lid

  1. Chop all your vegetables
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a large frying pan and sauté onions until clear
  3. Add the rest of your vegetables and seasoning
  4. Cook the vegetables on low for 20 minutes with lid on
  5. Remove the lid and cook off most of the liquid and then add the tomatoe paste stir in.
  6. The last step is to add your cooked Quinoa and Mushroom cook for 3 minutes and service on your buns

Enjoy from our table to yours.
