BBQ Carrot Sloppy Joes

BBQ Carrot Sloppy Joes

Just in time for Meatless Monday! This meat-free vegetarian BBQ carrot sandwich is satisfying and tasty! Even my husband who eats meat thought this was delicious and filling.

I made my own BBQ sauce for the recipe, but in a pinch, you could use a pre-made BBQ sauce with a little added tomato sauce to thin it out.  The texture of the carrots and onions has a nice bite with the sauce – if you’re looking to eat less meat, try out this tasty and inexpensive recipe.

You Will Need: (Makes 4-5 sandwiches)

6 Carrots – Shredded (the longer the threads, the easier it stays together)

1/2 Red Onion – Shredded

Olive Oil

4-5 Buns ( I used Hawaiian style because the extra sweetness complements the BBQ flavors well)

BBQ Sauce:

One 12 ounce can of tomato sauce

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/8 teaspoon clove

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses

 

How to Prepare

Lightly coat the carrot and onion shreds with olive oil and bake on a cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

In a saucepan, combine the BBQ ingredients and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add in roasted carrots and simmer for another 7-10 minutes until everything is soft.

Serve hot on buns and top with purple cabbage slaw! I tossed the cabbage with lime juice and a little jalapeno flavored olive oil.
