Let’s be honest here…I’ve only eaten a couple of vegan meals in my life. It’s tough to try new food, and I wasn’t too thrilled to try this. However, we keep trying new things and I haven’t been disappointed yet.
Eating sloppy joes without meat may seem crazy to you (as it did to me), but I’d encourage you to give this a try! Buying bulgar instead of meat saved us a couple of dollars and that could really add up if you have a large family to feed!

Immediate note: I wasn’t a big fan of the green peppers in the recipe. It was delicious other than that. If you want to add the green pepper, I’d recommend roasting/baking them for 5 minutes and then add them in as directed.
In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and green peppers to the pan, cooking until the onions become a little translucent.
Stir in the minced garlic and cook another 1-2 minutes.
Next, stir in bulgar and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Add in 1/2 cup of water and the tomato paste. Turn heat down to medium-low and cook the mixture uncovered. Add more water as needed (the mixture does become fairly thick – we added about 3/4 cup of water total).
Once bulgar reaches your desired consistancy, stir in the remaining ingredients (ketchup, Worcestershire, red wine vinegar, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, and salt/pepper) and cook for 5-6 minutes.
Serve on a bun and enjoy!
