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.

Black Bean and Salsa Sloppy Joes
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.)
