Vegetarian Sloppy Jane's

I made a really yummy concoction the other night- I'm calling them sloppy janes and they are a vegetarian twist on the old fashioned sloppy joes. Supper easy, packed full of yumminess and good for you too!

Sloppy Jane's
(serves 2 generously)

1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1/2 pepper, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, grated or minced
1 jalapeno, finely chopped, seeds removed
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1 tbsp chilly powder
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 can tomatoes (crushed, stewing... whatever you have - 15 oz size)
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp hot sauce
salt & pepper to taste
cilantro & a good cheese for garnish (both optional)

In a saucepan, fry onion, pepper, garlic and jalapeno in olive oil until soft (6 - 8 minutes)

Add black beans, cumin, coriander, and chilly powder and continue to cook until warm

In a small bowl, mix tomatoes, worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and hot sauce

Add tomato mixture and S&P to fry pan and cook until hot through out- lower heat and simmer until liquid reduces (10-15 minutes)

Serve on of fresh crusty buns- top with fresh cilantro and a yummy strong cheese if desired. (We used a nice old dubliner!)

Enjoy! xo
