Bekka's Vegan Sloppy Joe's

What you need: 

2 cups vegan "beef" crumbles (I use Boca crumbles)
1/2 cup yellow onion, chopped
1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped
oil or water, as needed
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar or sweetener of choice
1/4 cup ketchup
12 ounces tomato sauce
1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce (I use Annie's Naturals)
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
8 vegan hamburger buns

What you do: 

1. Cook the onion, green pepper, and "beef" crumbles in a large skillet until the veggies are tender and the crumbles are thoroughly cooked through. I cooked mine in a bit of oil, but you could probably cook it in a bit of water instead.
2. Add all the rest of the ingredients to the skillet. Mix together very well. Cover and let simmer for 10 to 20 minutes.
3. Serve on hamburger buns and enjoy!
These are sooo simple and cost affective to make!
Source of recipe: My mother always made this recipe non-vegan when I was a kid and I loved it. So I took it upon myself to veganize it!

I'm not sure I've ever had sloppy joe's that didn't come out of a can before; I have always liked it okay, but this stuff is just great!  I was out of tomato sauce so I used tomato and basil spaghetti sauce in its place.  I am sooo delighted to find an easy recipe my whole family likes!  (I served it with the roasted brussel sprouts--a great pairing!) :)>>>
