These easy vegan sloppy joes are made with nutritious chickpeas, simmered with carrots and peppers in a spiced tomato-based sauce; and served on a sandwich bun with crunchy cabbage and caramelized onions.
I’m super proud of my vegan chickpea sloppy joes! I don’t have fond memories of the original meat-based version, but I love these messy plant-based sandwiches. They’re easy to make, not too sweet, and made with pantry ingredients!
I decided to pair the chickpea filling with caramelized onions to add another note of sweetness because I keep the filling itself pretty tangy. Topped off with fresh cabbage for crunch, this is the perfect summer sandwich – or any time of year really!
