Tag Archives: vegan friendly


This is an amazing dish for kids and adults alike! I mean who doesn’t like a sloppy joe?! And now I have a vegan form without any cruelty involved?!?! You can’t top that!

What you’ll need is obviously a vegan friendly bun of sorts, I always just stick with Van de kamps because it’s fully vegan and delicious! Heat them up in the microwave for about 15 seconds to get them nice and soft.
While the buns heat, you can start preparing your vegan meatless meat crumbles. I use Smart Deli, and I use a full package. I then add tomato sauce and BBQ sauce, as well as blackening season and a tiny drop or 2 of liquid smoke. I mix together and let simmer and reduce for a bit, and once it’s all finished (about 10 mins), it’s ready to be slopped onto your bun! And voilà, you got yourself a sloppy joe! And remember you can always make them how Billy Madison liked them, extra sloppy!! Peace, Love, Grub!

Now this was a burger I got fully hooked on while I worked at Johnny Rockets! It’s also extremely easy to make into a vegan version! They call this burger the #12 because on a scale to 1-10, it’s considered a 12, and I must agree that it indeed is that tasty!

Now you can use any vegan burger patty of your liking but I did find that the Boca brand vegan patties were the ones that gave me the best flavor and results.
When cooking the patty, make sure to season it on both sides with a few shakes of seasoning salt and pepper. Once one side has fully cooked it’s time to flip the party over and top with a slice of vegan cheddar cheese (I used slices of the follow your heart brand), then under a low fire and cover so the cheese can melt. 
As your cheese is melting and your patty is finishing it’s cooking cycle, you can prepare your bun! Use vegan mayo on both parts of the bun as well as hienz chili sauce (it’s not ketchup but it can be found in the ketchup isle of your market). 
Once that’s finished, your patty should be ready to put on the bun. Once the patty has been placed, top it off with a giant wedge of iceberg lettuce, a slice of raw onion, and a tomato slice. Complete it all with your bun top and grub away!
The tangy flavor of the burger is my favorite part of this creation. It’s unique and reminds me of exactly how the actual #12 tasted! Hope it’s as good to you as it is for me! Peace, Love, Grub!
