Vegetarian Sloppy Joe

These Vegetarian Sloppy Joes are filling on their on. But you can serve them up with coleslaw or fries (or both) to make a complete meal. My preference is coleslaw. I absolutely love sloppy joes with coleslaw. You can even put it inside of the sandwich. Speaking of the sandwich, I prefer to use crusty rolls. They’re crusty on the outside, soft on the inside and hold their shape better than regular ol’ burger buns.
