This is our take on a recipe published long ago in Veg News.
Vegan, Gluten Free Sloppy Joes
Yield: 4 servings
- 2 tablespoons of organic extra virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped crimini mushrooms
- 1/2 cup chopped onions
- 1/2 cup celery
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 cup cooked French green lentils
- 2 cups crushed tomatoes or chunky tomato sauce
- 2 tablespoons tamari
- 2 teaspoons vegan Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Heat the olive oil, mushrooms, onions and celery over medium heat in a large skillet. After sauteeing for 8 minutes, add garlic and cook for 2 minutes longer. From there, carefully fold in the tomatoes or tomato sauce, lentils, tamari, vinegar, Worcestershire, mustard, cinnamon and chipotle powder. Cover the pot and reduce heat to low-medium. Simmer for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve on/over your favorite gluten-free, vegan hamburger buns; we have found that soft, vegan and gluten-free bagels work really well too (where we are there is a brand called Outside the Bread Box).
