The Joe that is Sloppy

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 yellow onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

The Duxelle

Fry the minced mushrooms in the butter until they release their liquid, then lower the heat and continue cooking, stirring often, until the mixture is dry and easily formed into 4 patties. Store in a container with a tight-fitting lid.

The Joe

  1. Sauté the onions, garlic, and bell peppers in a medium saute pan until translucent (about two minutes).
  2. Add half the spices and the crushed tomatoes and cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the remainder of your spices and salt and pepper; cook for another five minutes. Remove from heat and store in a container in the refrigerator with a tight-fitting lid.

At the grill

Lay some heavy-duty tinfoil onto the grill and place your patties onto it, heat them up, turn once, remove.

Microwave the Sloppy Joe mix.

Serve the duxelles topped with Sloppy Joe mix on vegan buns.
