Description

These are so good you will never miss the beef! My hubby was a little skeptical, but he was happily surprised how delicious they were.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil
  • ½ cups White Onion, Chopped
  • ½ cups Green Pepper, Chopped
  • 15 ounces, fluid Diced Tomatoes, Canned
  • ½ cups Barbecue Sauce
  • ¼ cups Ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Yellow Mustard
  • 3 cups Black Beans, Cooked (or Canned And Rinsed)
  • 4 whole Whole Wheat English Muffins

Preparation

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add onions and saute until they begin to soften. Add green peppers and heat for additional 3-4 minutes. Stir in diced tomatoes, barbecue sauce, ketchup, honey, vinegar and mustard. Reduce heat to medium low and heat until sauce has reduced slightly and is thickened, about 8-10 minutes. Fold in black beans and heat through, about 5 minutes.

Toast English muffins and spoon sloppy joe mixture over the top. Serve open-faced or as a sandwich with lettuce and tomato.

Great recipe! Black beans are a favorite at our house. I was a clinical dietitan manager, renal dietitan for 30 years before we moved to Central Oregon 5 years ago. I miss the nutrition community, nice to find another RD!

I love the concept of this recipe! My husband would definitely be skeptical at first, but I bet I could convert him too! :D

Fun sandwiches! I customized the recipe a little but nothing drastic. I added some jalapeño, used both kidney beans and black beans, and added some nutritional yeast to tone down the sweetness of the sauce. Since my sauce came out a bit on the soupy side, I mashed up part of the beans and threw in some quick-cooking barley to thicken the mixture. Will make this one again!

We had these for dinner tonight, with regular hamburger buns and some cheese. Delicious!
I’ve never had a sloppy joe before, so I’m no authority on authenticity here. But hubby, who was all over the idea of sloppy joes for dinner, said these were yummy, too.
I’ll probably add some kidney beans next time, for a little more substance.

Made these tonight and they were delicious! I haven’t eaten a sloppy joe in 10 years (veg) & I’ve been anxious for a recipe like this one– thank you!

I served these on whole wheat buns and even my carnivore dude liked these!
