These Tempeh & Chickpea Sloppy Joes are a delicious quick and easy vegan dinner!
I just dropped my mom off at the airport and I’m so sad! She was here visiting for a week and it was so nice. She got to spend some good quality time with Eli, she was so helpful around the house and did I mention that she is a massage therapist?! Let’s just say I got a little spoiled having her around 🙂
I felt like the least I could do was cook us a nice meal, so I decided to make these 30 Minute Tempeh and Chickpea Sloppy Joes. I’m happy to report that she loved them!
I have to admit that this was my first time ever cooking with tempeh. I feel weird saying that since I cook so many vegetarian meals, but for some reason I’ve never used tempeh before. In case anyone else out there is like me, I should warn you that sometimes tempeh is moldy and that is OK.
My mom assured me that it was perfectly normal because tempeh is a fermented food, but I did check google just to be absolutely sure 🙂
These vegetarian sloppy joes are so easy to make and they even have a delicious homemade BBQ sauce with them! They only take about 30 minutes so they’re great for an easy weeknight meal or a weekend BBQ. They’re also packed with tons of protein from the tempeh and chickpeas, which I think is so important for a vegetarian main meal. I hope you enjoy these as much as my mom and I did!Print
