Let’s be honest, sometimes we just need simple, easy meals that don’t require a lot of thought. Yesterday was one of those nights. We had hiked for a little over an hour. I was tired and I just needed easy. Thankfully, I keep certain staples in the pantry. One of those staples includes a can or two of sloppy joe sauce. Of course, soy crumbles in the fridge or freezer are also important. You can use them for all kinds of things, so I keep them around.
I found some soft rolls at a quick stop, which happily were vegan, so Sloppy Joes were on the menu. I had to dress my crumbles up just a bit, because it makes dinner just a bit more special. I finely diced and sauteed some onions and then added garlic to the pan before I threw the crumbles in.
After that it was only a few minutes before I poured the can of Sloppy Joe mix over the top and let it simmer on low until heated through.
I served them on the soft rolls I had come across with corn on the cob as a side.
Bruce teases me about how I dress up my corn, but I don’t even care. It’s delicious with all theses spices!
