Saucy, sweet and savory, these sloppy joes make an easy, hearty weeknight dinner that's packed with protein and fiber. It also makes a fantastic meal prep dish; simply scale the recipe and cook it in a Dutch oven or slow-cooker.
I like using beef-style crumbles (such as the ones by Trader Joe's or Beyond Meat) in this recipe, but feel free to se your favorite vegan protein source. I've also made these with lentils, crumbled tempeh, and rehydrated TVP. If you make this substitution, I recommend boiling your lentils or tempeh in a beef-flavored broth such as Not Beef Cubes or No Beef Better than Bouillon to add extra depth of flavor.
