This wonderful recipe for meatless sloppy Joes is contributed to us by my great friend Megan Lawson, who has a Whole Food Plant Based Blog, MegUnprocessed, that has some great recipes. Megan has a knack of taking traditional American food and turning it into vegan food that even the most hardcore carnivore would appreciate.
On a side note, Megan, who is also a Holistic Nutritionist, managed to get her Dad completely off Lipitor by simply following her plant-basted dietary recommendations. This way of eating works – it really does!
This Sloppy Joe recipe is a great one to add to your weekly meat-free repertoire.
  • 7 Baby Portobello Mushrooms
  • 1 cup Walnuts
  • 1 can (6oz) Tomato Paste

  • 1 tbsp Tamari Sauce (or Liquid Aminos)
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • ½ tsp Ground Mustard
  • ¼ tsp Paprika
  • ¼ cup Water

  3. In a medium skillet sauté ¼ of the onions and garlic for 3 – 4 min
  4. Add in the mushroom and walnut mixture and stir
