Lets Camp Vegetarian for a Change

Janet Groene’s
Meatless Sloppy Joe
The carnivores in your crew will like the flavor and texture of this imposter. One secret to its meaty texture is finely chopped fresh mushrooms. If you like, cook the fresh vegetables at home up to two days ahead and keep them cold.
12-ounce package fresh mushrooms, finely chopped
Medium green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
Medium onion, finely diced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
15-ounce can vegetarian refried beans
15-ounce can small white beans, such as navy beans, rinsed and drained
15-ounce can diced tomatoes
6-ounce can tomato paste
2 tablespoons each brown sugar, soy sauce, grainy mustard
Water or broth if needed
Salt, pepper to taste
½ cup sunflower “nuts”
8 to 10 hamburger buns

    In a large skillet, sizzle fresh vegetables in hot oil until they are browned.  Add refried beans and break them up.  Continue stirring over high heat while adding white beans, tomatoes, tomato paste and seasonings.  If mixture is too thick, add a little water or broth.  Cover, reduce heat and simmer while flavors blend. Adjust seasonings. Just before serving, stir in sunflower nuts. Spoon into buns. Makes 8 to 10 sandwiches.
