These vegan sloppy joes are a hearty and delicious meal made lighter and healthier than its traditional version! Sloppy Joes have always been a family favourite, but this version is loaded with plenty of nutrients and tons of protein and fiber. To make things even better, these sloppy joes are much lower in calories than a traditional recipe, making it a perfect choice for weight loss or weight management.
These vegan sloppy joes are a low calorie meal that is filing and satisfying!
My favourite combo! This dish is such a staple in my household as it pleases my entire family, including my picky toddler who gives this two thumbs up! 🙂 Try this out on your most carnivorous friends and family. I bet they will love it!
What are vegan sloppy joes made with?
Well, this super healthy version contains:
- onion & pepper
- low sodium vegetable broth
- tomato sauce
Simple, healthy AND delicious! If you’re watching your carb intake, skip the buns and eat this as a soup instead! Add little extra tomato sauce and broth (see notes below) and serve in bowls instead. I often choose to eat this one as a soup and find it super satisfying this way, and especially comforting during colder months.
To make this easy recipe for vegan sloppy joes even easier, I use my Instant Pot. This just might be my favourite set it and forget it recipe! If you don’t own an Instant Pot, no worries! I’ve got you covered with regular stove top directions as well.
For a low calorie meal, you really can’t beat this delicious and nutritious dish. The lentils are filling, hearty and satisfying, and offer everything you’re looking for in a sloppy joe! I’d love to hear your thoughts, so as usual, please drop me a line in the comments below.
