Pretentious Joesph's

So as per routine it seems I am posting a bit late. I think it was the fact I fell asleep on the couch around 9pm last night. I went with a nice simple comfort food for Monday night, since I was suffering from the usual weekend jet lag of staying up all night and sleeping in and then returning to a 8-5 job. For some reason, I was madly craving sloppy joes. Perhaps it was my drunken friends quoting the lunch lady from Billy Madison over the weekend.

I went with the tried and true Snobby Joes from the Veganomicon. The only change I recommend, as mentioned in the comments and depending on your spice cabinet, is to cut back, down to even half, on the chili powder. Mine packed a bit of a kick, but I think since I'll be eating them for a few days as left overs, I'll be adding a little (better than) sour cream.

They get a bit sloppy when cut, but I was too hungry to clean the plate for the photo.
I served mine on my oversize home baked french bread buns which were toasted with a light coat of earth balance. These hings are a good 1/3lbs loaf. To make the potatoes I simply tossed some fingerling potatoes with fresh chopped rosemary, garlic, and olive oil. And roasted for about 30 minutes at 450, or until fork tender. Tonight I'll start a no-knead pumpkin bread dough for a pecan pumpkin rolls, a recipe I recently found and will be slightly modifying to be vegan. And of course i'll still be eating left over Snobby Joes.

Om Nom Namaste,

  1. I am laughing so hard right now! When I was making sloppy joes the other month, this EXACT movie clip was running through my mind as well :) Hilarious. xo, Cara
