No Tomato Joe Sauce


no tomato sloppy joe sauce to make vegan sloppy joes!

the sauce came out amazing!

everyone loved it, five year old, and even the baby!

we used abbots butcher pea protein ground beef. i like this product because the ingredients are super clean whole pea protein and nice seasoning. it’s soy free, gluten free.
(i didn’t realize till later it has a tomato paste inside the grounds, so if you truly need a no tomato option then i would go with green lentils for your joes and use this sauce!)

going to use this sauce for a no tomato chili recipe next!

disclosure: I’m not eating tomato right now because we have noticed the baby doesn’t respond well when she gets it through my breast milk.
