Back-to-School Blenditarian Sloppy Joes |

Back-to-School Blenditarian Sloppy Joes




Yield 4-6 servings

This recipe utilizes a package of savoury meat blend (the first Urb’n’Spice Blenditarian recipe).  I keep several pouches in my freezer for quick meals like this and for other quick meals like date night spaghetti sauce, chili, and hamburger macaroni casserole (recipes coming soon in future Blenditarian posts).  This recipe for Back-to-School Sloppy Joes can be made in under ten minutes with just a few additional ingredients.



  1. Pour the oil into a small saucepan, and then add the diced onion. Cook the onion over low-medium heat until the onion is translucent, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the package of meat blend, tomato sauce, spices, ketchup, vinegar and brown sugar.  Stir well with a spatula and simmer the mixture for 5 minutes.  It should be quite thick when done.
  3. Place on toasted hamburger buns.  Serve with a salad and enjoy!


CHEF TALK:  The recipe for the Savoury Meat, Mushroom and Vegetable Blend is included in the original post below the Back-to-School Blenditarian Sloppy Joes recipe.  The savoury meat blend makes enough base for several 1 lb. (454 g) packages that can be used for Sloppy Joes or other dishes as listed above.  For a Gluten-Free version of this recipe:  the Sloppy Joes meat mixture recipe is gluten-free and dairy free.  Use gluten-free hamburger buns and for the variation listed below using garlic bread, use gluten-free baguettes.
