Vegan Mushroom and Eggplant Sloppy Joes are a spin on traditional sloppy joes.
Did you grow up eating sloppy joes? We had sloppy joes pretty often. They were a quick and easy meal that the whole family loved. To make a really quick dinner, my mom used the manwich sloppy joe sauce.
When I started cooking, I learned how easy it is to make your own homemade sauces. Whether you are making a pasta marina sauce or sloppy joes, I like taking a few extra minutes and make the sauce from scratch. The sauce for these Vegan Mushroom and Eggplant Sloppy Joes is easy to make.
To add depth of flavor to the sauce, I use a vegan worcestershire sauce. Many worcestershire sauces aren’t vegan; however there are a few vegan-friendly options. My top two are Annie’s and Edward and Sons.
I love cooking with beer and it adds a really nice flavor to the sauce. If you don’t drink alochol or don’t keep beer on hand, simply sub vegetable broth instead.
I usually make lentil based sloppy joes, but I wanted to create a vegetable heavy sloppy joe filling. I have been loving the combinations of mushrooms and eggplant together. Two of my favorite vegetables!
These Vegan Mushroom and Eggplant Sloppy Joes are a vegetarian spin on the classic sloppy joe.
