Sweet and Sour Sloppy Joes 'N Slaw

Here is a new spin on the sloppy joe. I have seen a few non-vegan versions floating around and thought it was time we had our own.

2 T vegetable oil
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 tsp ground ginger
12 oz vegan ground meat, I used Yves brand
1/4 c soy sauce
6 oz can tomato paste
3 T brown sugar, packed
1/2 head purple cabbage, sliced on your mandolin or thinly sliced
2 carrots, grated
juice from 1/2 a lime plus more wedges for serving
2 tsp sesame oil
sesame seeds
vegan buns

1. In an skillet heat the oil over medium high. Add the onion and cook for a minute or two, until soft.
2. Add the vegan ground meat, ginger, soy sauce, tomato paste and brown sugar. Mix and cook, adding in up to a quarter cup of water to get the right consistency---a little sloppy. Cook for a couple of minutes until heated through.
3. Toss together the cabbage and carrots, lime juice and oil.
4. Serve the sloppy joes on the vegan buns. Put the slaw on the side and garnish with sesame seeds and a lime wedge.

  1. I love the sweet and sour combo! And I'm crazy and like to put the cole slaw ON the sloppy joe and eat it all together. You get a nice textural and hot/cold thing going on.
