Taking something simple and adding that little extra, personalizing it, is what I find tasiest.
Getting home from work, I stared at my fridge full of veggies, then to the bab on my kitchen table. I really should just categorize some of my last fews posts as “How To Use A Loaf of Bread.”
On a pizza making kick, my sister had whipped up a large pot of tomato sauce using one small can tomato paste, a large can of crushed tomatoes, minced garlic, basil, bay leaves, oregano pinched (all spices added to taste), so I helped myself.
The result was a variation on your average Sloppy Joe, which is essentially just ground beef, tomato sauce, and spices on a hamburger bun. I loved Sloppy Joes as a kid; I even had one on the 4th of July, to celebrate my 9 year anniversary.
For this variation on your classic:
- 1/2 tbsp vegan butter
- 1 serving of Boca crumbles
- 2 slices of diced portabella
- 1/3 of a yellow pepper, diced
- tbsp green olives
- 1/2 cup tomato sauce (fresh made or from a jar)
- 2 tspn hot sauce
- dash of salt and pepper
- 2 pieces of Whole Foods Mighty Multigrain bread
- Melt the butter in a skillet.
- Heat the veggies and meatless cumbles, turning occasionally, until throughly cooked.
- Pour in the tomato sauce, hot sauce, and spices.
- Toast the bread.
- Plate the bread and pour the pan’s contents over the bread.
