Meatless Monday: Eggplant Sloppy Joes

Meatless Monday is all about taking our favorite recipes and swapping out the meat for healthy alternatives. You’ve probably had your fair share of veggie burgers by now, but here’s a meaty sandwich idea that may surprise you: Eggplant Sloppy Joes



No sacrifice here! Eggplant simmering in vegetable sauce creates a tender, meaty texture and flavor, and a slice of gooey provolone cheese is just the accent your sloppy joe was always missing. The best part? You can have this delicious meal on the table in about 20 minutes! Now that’s a way to start the week off right!
