Quinoa Veggie Not So Sloppy Joe's

Some people think that plant based vegans eat only leafy salads! TOTALLY NOT TRUE!  We can eat hearty too! Like this recipe I am about to share. Quinoa Veggie Not So Sloppy Joe's!!

Quinoa Veggie Not So Sloppy Joe's

1 c. quinoa, rinsed
3/4 c. ketchup
1 1/2 c. water
1 TBSP soy sauce

1 TBPS turbinado sugar (or brown sugar)
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. yellow mustard

1/4 c. veggie broth
1/2 red bell pepper seeded & diced
1 green bell pepper seeded & diced
2 carrots peeled and sliced
1/2 medium onion diced

-Combine the quinoa, ketchup, water, and soy sauce in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and turn heat to low. Cover and simmer for approx. 20 minutes stirring occasionally. Add more water if it starts to stick. Turn off heat and add the sugar, cumin, garlic powder and mustard. Mix until combined.

-In a non-stick skillet, line the bottom with veggie broth. Add the peppers, carrots and onions. Cook on medium heat until onions are translucent and veggies slightly tender. Add the quinoa mixture to the skillet and stir all together.

Grab your favorite buns, top it off and chow away!
