      Vegetarian Sloppy Joes
      2 teaspoons olive oil

      1 red onion, coarsely chopped

      2 carrots, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced

      1 zucchini, finely diced

      1 teaspoon paprika

      1 teaspoon dried basil

      1 teaspoon chili powder

      2 cloves garlic, minced

      1 cup canned no-salt-added tomato puree

      1/2 cup barbecue sauce (see note)

      1 15-ounce can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

      1 tablespoon cider vinegar

      4 hamburger rolls

      In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat the oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and carrots and cook until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add the zucchini, paprika, basil, chili powder and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the carrots are crisp-tender, about 6 minutes.

      Stir the tomato puree, barbecue sauce, beans and vinegar into the pan. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the mixture is slightly thickened and the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.

      Open the hamburger rolls and divide among 4 plates. Spoon the vegetable mixture onto the hamburger rolls and serve.
      Makes 4 servings

      Note: For the “beefiest” taste, use a barbecue sauce with a smoky flavor.

      Second night, use your sloppy joe mix and serve over hot cauliflower or cabbage. Absolutely delicious!
