Recipe Wednesday: Adapted Chickpea Sloppy Joes

I tried a new recipe this week with my boyfriend. It is from the cookbook But I Could Never Go Vegan!  .

This was my first time cooking something from this book. (It was a Christmas Present from 2016.) Overall, it turned out delicious and I will definitely be keeping this meal in my rotation!

I adapted the recipe a little to make it a “quicker” version. I used a can of Manwhich Original Sloppy Joe’s Sauce  rather than the canned tomatoes and tomato paste it calls for, and I cut the spices in half.  Since the canned sauce already had a bell pepper in it, I skipped the vegetable bell pepper as well.

This is the closest recipe to what I used:

1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained

Hamburger buns or bread

1 teaspoon olive oil

1/2 medium red onion diced

2-3 teaspoons of minced garlic

1 can of Manwhich Original Sloppy Joe’s Sauce

3/4 can of water

1 teaspoon oregano

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon soy sauce

(I ended up skipping a majority of the other seasonings: salt + pepper, nutritional yeast, maple syrup, siracha) I was trying to avoid spicy sloppy joes due to my UC.
