Meatless Monday: Sloppy No's

Today's Meatless Monday post is an original recipe by the ECM's dear husband. With a craving for sloppy joe's and a penchant for eating well this time of year, what's a man to do but make a few substitutions? I must say, I'm pretty proud of him. Try this recipe for yourself and let us know what you think!

Sloppy No's
by Eric Asche

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

1 cup vegetarian ground "beef" crumbles (add more if you desire a thicker consistency)
1 cup garbanzo beans
1/2 cup barbecue sauce (preferred brand: Stubb's)
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 small jalapeno, finely chopped (remove seeds)
2 or 3 garlic bulbs for a little extra flavor, finely chopped
Healthy dose of Salt / Pepper, to taste

1: Combine ingredients in medium saucepan
2: Bring mixture to a boil
3: Reduce heat to low, cover and let cook for 10-15 minutes, or until onion is tender (remove cover to thicken)
4: Stir occasionally
5: After finished cooking, let contents sit and cool for 5 minutes to help thicken
6: Toast buns, add pickle, slaw, tots and get after it!


  1. Nice job Eric! and girls of course!

  2. Also good are lentils subbed for the ground beef. Sounds delish!

  3. I am so excited about this! Good job, E man!!!! My life has been filled with way too many soups of late. It'll be great to have something to chew.
