Reviews for Vegetarian Sloppy Joes
"My son and I made this tonight. My son got the idea of saut?ing kale and carrot greens and topping the burgers with them. Excellent idea!"
"I have just recently became a vegetarian and this was one of the first recipes I tried. I added red pepper flakes and a dash of hot sauce and these were delicious!"
"I highly recommend using tomato paste instead of sauce and add green peppers after you cook the onions. Makes a world of difference."
"Wow! I love this! I don't really remember what meat-atarian sloppy joes taste like, but I'm SURE this is better. We also used home made tomato sauce. Mmmmm..."
"This was pretty good..and I'm not a fan of vegetarian meat substitute."
"These are delicious!"
"These are delicous!"
