• Veggie Sloppy Joes

    • email print
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 medium onion, peeled and diced
    1/2 cup diced carrots
    1 cup trimmed and diced mushrooms
    1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon paprika
    3 cups canned black beans, drained and rinsed
    1 cup prepared tomato sauce
    2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
    1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    1 teaspoon maple syrup
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    6 whole-wheat hamburger buns
    1/2 cup shredded cheddar or jack cheese
    In a large frying pan over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the onion and carrots and saute until they begin to soften, for about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms, cumin and paprika. Stir everything together and allow mushrooms to soften, for 2 to 3 minutes.
    Add the beans, tomato sauce, vinegar, mustard and syrup; allow to simmer and thicken for about 15 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper if desired.
    Toast the hamburger buns (to make Joes a bit less sloppy). Spoon a generous amount of bean mixture onto bottom half of each bun and sprinkle with a good pinch of the shredded cheese. Put bun halves together and serve.
    Makes 6 servings.
