The Case of Sloppy Joes

Vegetarian food is happy food. So is simple, diner-style food. Don't you think gloomy November is a great time to bring on the happy with veggie Sloppy Joes? Try this recipe for lunch. Invite non-vegetarians even. These fork and knife sandwiches are not much different from their "carnivorous" cousins.

Sloppy Joes

1 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1 cup chopped brown mushrooms
1 pack Yves Italian Veggie Ground Round
8 oz tomato sauce
5-oz-can tomato paste
1 cup water
1 tbsp hot sauce
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp mustard
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp pepper
4 Italian rolls, split in half

Sauté the onion, green pepper and mushrooms in the olive oil for 3 min. Add the Italian veggie ground round, tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, hot sauce, brown sugar, mustard, garlic and pepper and simmer for 10 min., stirring often. Serve between halves of the Italian rolls. Serves 4.
