Nothing wrong with a good ole' fashioned Sloppy Joe made vegetarian. Takes as long to put together as you chopping the veggies. I read that this classically messy sandwich originated in Iowa and didn't have sauce. Somewhere along the line that got added, and I made some healthy additions of my own, including packing these joes with carrots, celery, peppers and beans. If you don't have ground chipotle powder, use half smoked paprika and half chile powder.
