Found this recipe years ago, and don't even remember where it came from. I've tweaked this endlessly, adding parmesan cheese, different nuts, combinations of mushrooms, and different seasonings. If you like mushrooms and nuts, you'll like this. The recipe even looks like a pate - very similar color and texture. We especially like it hot, but it's still very good cold (put on a cracker, top with some cheese and roasted red pepper and broil - yum) or at room temperature. Great year-round, and especially at parties.
This is a filling snack which can be packed for school children and it makes a full meal along with soup and salad. This can be prepared in advance and wrapped with cling wrap. It is an ideal snack for kids' parties too!
Found this recipe in a Weight Watches Magazine Nov/Dec 2006 edition. They called them pumpkin hash browns but they are more like pumpkin patties. The patty could also be used for a Vegetarian Burger. They recommended Weight Watchers cottage cheese but I think low fat cottage cheese would be alright. Because I don't like eggs, I used 'Egg Like' which is an egg replacer. I skipped the 'garnish step' and serve them with to tomato sauce.
This is a great alternative to meatloaf or burgers. You may need to play with the volume of bread crumb/oat/wheat germ to get desired consistency for forming into burgers. Only thing to remember is this timely to make from dried beans.
It tastes great and I am not vegetarian.
I've been searching for a vegetarian sloppy joe recipe I really like, and I finally found it. This one is total comfort food! They remind me a lot of my great aunt's sloppy joes. If you've never cooked with TVP before, give it a try! I started using it recently, and it tastes amazingly like meat! It really takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with. I got this recipe from Heather Van Vorous at www.helpforIBS.com.
These faux "burgers" are made with fresh shiitake mushrooms (plus some dried, for a flavor boost), bulgur, and some shredded mozzarella to help hold things together. Add a chopped chipotle pepper to ketchup for a smoky, spicy topping.
Sloppy Joes are not easy to eat--that's half the fun for kids of all ages. Adults who like spicy food can add hot sauce at the table. Adapted from Cooking Light magazine.
This recipe is delicious! It also is very, very versatile. It's been used for sloppy joes, also combined with rice and used as a filling for stuffed peppers. Put it in a tortilla and top it with salsa and cheese. You can put it in spaghetti sauce and serve it over pasta. It makes a lot, so I can have sloppy joes the first night and use it in a different dish the second night. This recipe freezes well too!
Originally called the Ploughman's Sandwich, I have changed this to a vegetarian sandwich by leaving out 5 oz. corned beef. Feel free to add it if you want to! The original recipe also called for Irish cheddar cheese to be soaked in Guinness beer for 2 hours. Hmmm. This is supposed to be one serving! I'm calling it two servings!

This gluten recipe is very versatile, so you can swap different oils and different herbs, such as oregano or basil. For thicker gluten, try adding a teaspoon of tahini. You can also use different chili pastes for the barbecue sauce or simply leave out the chili paste entirely. Adapted from Jason Wyrick, courtesy of GoVeg!
