Veggie Sloppy Joes

I admit that I am a food junkie. I love food. The flavor mix. The textures. The aromas. The art of proper plating. I even love chewing. When I decided to kick meat from my diet, I knew it would be a challenge for me. I knew that there would be things that I would miss. 7+ years later and I am realizing that there isn’t much that I do miss. I even find beauties like this recipe for Sloopy Joes without the meats and icky stuff. They are more tasty in my opinion and make me feel amazing after I eat them because I know they are no longer JUNK food. I hope that you enjoy them as well. [Read more…]

It is rich, creamy and pretty darn simple to make. Add in some baby portabellas and you have a feast fit for kings in my opinion. Please note, it contains butter so even though it’s meatless, chow down with caution. [Read more…]
