Were you a part of the sloppy joe club growing up? Well, I’m the president and this very important update meeting is now underway! 😉
How We Amped up the Sloppy Joes:
- Made it vegan! Just because we grew up on this does it mean we were fans of meat, even back then. Bam, easy vegan sloppy joes are here!
- Ditched the can of sloppy joe sauce and made our own from scratch. Saucy!
- STILL EASY! Just because the sauce is made from scratch does not mean this is a complicated recipe to make.
- 1 Hour – Made from start to finish in under an hour. Bam. Gluten-free Sloppy Joes coming to a family table near you!
I crave this sweet-and-saucy delicious weeknight dinner often. Especially after coming together with an epic meat replacement that is vegetarian AND gluten-free, I’ve been taking my favorite dishes and making them vegetarian often. Bolognese Sauce? Taco Meat? Yes please.
Now Sloppy Joes. I think we’ve covered all the bases of my childhood dinners.

What is in our Vegetarian Sloppy Joes to make them meat-free?
Just trust me. 😉
I’ve also made sloppy joes with lentils and if this route is the one you want to go with you are more than welcome to. I found the lentil version didn’t inspire a walk down childhood memories lane as much. It’s definitely good but not exactly what I remembered.
On the other hand, our easy vegetarian sloppy joe recipe totally did.
Simmer our two-ingredient meat replacement in our homemade-from-scratch sloppy joe sauce, dollop onto a soft gluten-free bun, add a slice of cheese (or cheese alternative to keep it vegan) AND DINNER IS SERVED.
