Vegan Sloppy No's


J was pretty happy to title these little sandwiches as Sloppy No's. Actually, this is a PPK recipe and they call them Snobby Joe's. I like J's name better; we're not snobs, just vegetarians. This particular recipe came from Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook and it is wonderful. As I've mumbled before, I'm not a fan of cooking with meat substitutes (tvp, tofu and all the other textured meatless wonders). So I was pretty psyched to find a "sloppy joe" recipe with lentils. As my friend Erin stated, lentils are little "nutritional powerhouses" and any one should be happy to include them in a delicious meal.



Here is the link to the Snobby Joes Recipe on the PPK site. The only thing I might do different is substitute brown sugar for maple syrup. I know that sugar sucks and maple syrup is packed full of good shit, but brown sugar gives me nostalgia. So, ha.

Yay, I have both those cookbooks. Now if I could just get myself past the4 pretty picture on the cover...

Oh yeah, one more thing I must say, repectfully of course - quit lumping tofu in with the other faux mystery meats! It deserves much more respeck and imo, not a soy "junk food."

But yeah, regardless, I need way less soy in my diet. Junk food eaters, meat eaters included, could say the same as soy is in all kinds of processed crap nowadays.

Most of all, thanks for the inspiration!

my love, i know how you feel about tofu. but it still doesn't have my attention. its not that i don't know how great it can be for me, its just that it isn't flavorful and i find it difficult to be inspired by tofu. i eat it when others prepare it and i have enjoyed it many times. i just can't seem to crave it.
