Delicious Vegan Sloppy Joes

I made these last night for a couple that came for dinner. They were definitely a hit, and definitely delicious. If you are, or were, a fan of sloppy joes, you will love this supremely healthy alternative. I got the recipe from the April 2012 issue of Parenting magazine. Find more recipes like this at

Black Bean and Salsa Sloppy Joes
Serves 4
  • In a skillet, heat 2 tsp oil over medium heat.
  • Add 3 minced garlic cloves and saute for 1 minute.
  • Stir in 2 1/2 cups (2 cans) rinsed and drained black beans, 1 15-oz. jar mild chunky salsa, 1 Tbsp brown sugar 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp Dijon mustard, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp salt.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Spoon onto whole-wheat buns and top with shredded (daiya) cheddar.

    We also enjoyed ours with romaine lettuce for a few more vitamins and texture. I cannot wait to make these again. Yum!

    (I forgot to take a picture, so here's a snapshot of the picture from the magazine.)
