Mo’s Sloppy Joe’s and Rosemary Pearl Potatoes (Vegan)

May 10, 2011

The other day, I noticed a new soy crumble brand “Marjon Vegetarian Hamburger Tofu Crumbles” at our Harris Teeter. Although we don’t eat tons of the processed vegetarian products, I am up for trying different ones for that occasional fake-meat meal in a pinch. And well, alot of the fake meats were on sale this week, so I stocked up the fridge for emergency meals since May and June are roller coasters. The Marjon Crumbles ingredient list looked to be written in English, so I thought it might be a brand worth trying. After a little research online, I molded together a sauce for the Sloppy Joe’s. Huy Fong’s Sriracha sauce, also known as rooster sauce, gives the sandwich a kick. Be careful when purchasing, because the Huy Fong brand is definitely vegan, whereas imitation brands use shrimp sauce. We enjoyed ours Sloppy Joe’s with the roasted potato recipe below with Klamath Pearl Potatoes, which are a new potato grown in the Klamath region in Oregon.
