Joe's Jingle

Joes are sloppy

sweet and messy

dribbly buns

any added

crumbly meat

only napkins

soap and towels

chin and jowl

so live it up

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 2 red bell peppers, minced
  • 2 green bell peppers, minced
  • 12 oz meatless crumbles, (soy & wheat mixture found in health food stores, or sometimes next to Tofu in regular stores)
  • 1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce NS
  • 1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
  • ¼ - ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • 2-3 TBSP sugar
  • 2-4 TBSP olive oil
  • ½ - ¾ cup shallots, minced
  • 1 bulb garlic, minced
  • salt & pepper to taste

How to Do It:

  1. Halve and seed all the bell peppers. Press pepper halves flat onto foil, and place under broiler until skins blacken.
  2. Remove skins easily by slipping a sharp, paring knife under and skimming between flesh and skin lightly.
  3. Peel back and discard skins.
  4. Mince peppers extremely fine.
  5. Peel & mince shallots & garlic.
  6. Head on over to the stovetop. heat olive oil to sizzling over a medium-high heat. Add shallots, and cook until translucent.
  7. Add garlic. As soon as this sizzles, it's done. Careful not to overcook, as garlic will become bitter if burned.
  8. Add minced peppers, and stir.
  9. Add sugar.
  10. Add red wine vinegar. Reduce for about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  11. Add tomato sauce, and stir.
  12. Add tomato paste and mix well. Remove Sloppy Joe mixture from heat, and set aside.
  13. In separate pan, heat olive oil to sizzling, and meatless crumbles. Add the Sloppy Joe mixture to this, and stir well.
  14. Plunk a nice spoonful down onto a bun, add some fries, a salad, and you are ready to make a mess! So eat in a Mess Hall, why doncha...;) and be sure to grab stacks of napkins, too. Moo.

Add Some Fries, and a LOT of Napkins, and--!

      What a surprise to find a poem introducing your burger! Great.

      I really like your photographs too, clear and easy to follow.

      A healthy alternative to the meat version.

      Votes and a share.
