Spicy Vegan Sloppy Joes

July 25, 2022


1 pound cremini mushrooms, halved

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 large sweet onion, diced

1 3/4 cups light beer (drink what's left in the bottle)

Kosher salt

1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts

1 small green bell pepper, seeded and diced

Freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile powder

1/4 cup ketchup

3 tablespoons tomato paste

6 whole grain hamburger buns

Shredded red cabbage or lettuce, pickled jalapeno and scallions, for serving, optional


  1. In a food processor, pulse the mushrooms in batches until very finely chopped. Place aside.
  2. In a sizable nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. One tablespoon of beer, one-fourth of a teaspoon of salt, and the onions should be added at this point. Cook for about five minutes, stirring often. Cook, turning periodically, the peppers and walnuts for about 3 minutes, or until the peppers are crisp-tender. Cook the mushrooms, turning regularly, for about 5 minutes, until they are barely cooked through. Add the mushrooms, 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, and chipotle powder.
  3. When the sauce reaches the desired consistency, about 2 minutes later, add the remaining beer, the ketchup, the tomato paste, and 1/8 teaspoon salt.
  4. Distribute the mixture among the buns. Adding toppings is optional.
