I am using PlantPure's new Meal Starters to make these Super Easy Sloppy Joes with only 8 ingredients! So simple anyone can do it!


Units Scale
  • 1 PlantPure burger starter pack
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1/2 white onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 15-oz can of no-salt tomato sauce
  • 1 Tbs yellow mustard
  • 1 Tbs Vegan Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • Your choice of bread or buns
  • Pickles optional


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F
  2. Empty the burger packet into a large bowl
  3. Carefully add 1 ½ cups of boiling water and mix thoroughly
  4. Let rest for 10 minutes to fully rehydrate
  5. Spread mixture evenly onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, about  ½” thick
  6. Bake for 15 minutes - then turn off the oven
  7. Using a spatula, carefully score the mixture into ½” rows AND columns.  This will help separate the mixture and begin the drying process for making the crumbles.
  8. Return to oven for an additional 10-15 minutes, the residual heat will help dry the crumbles
  9. Using your spatula, cut along the score marks, creating the crumbles
  10. In a large skillet, sauté the onion & peppers over medium heat until softened, using a little water or broth to prevent sticking.
  11. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds
  12. Add the crumbles, breaking up any large pieces with your spatula
  13. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to mix well
  14. Simmer until warmed through and bubbly
