Chickpea Sloppy Joes

A sandwich packed with meaty texture and great flavor.

As we all try to calm down from Sunday's terrible series finale of an otherwise bad Game of Thrones season (cheer up with my Missandei and Grey Worm appreciation post), let's get back to the kitchen and soothe our wounds with food, primarily with the amazing versality of chickpeas.
I think a lot of other vegans will agree-- chickpeas are endless recipe foundations. They can become anything even sloppy joes, a childhood favorite. I seasoned fork mashed chickpeas the same way as my Walnut Almond "Meatballs" and the results were absolutely delicious. Something about Liquid Aminos, cumin, and coriander screams "meaty" flavor. I'll likely mix this together and put it in the refrigerator with that name.
If you don't have any chickpeas, lentils would be a perfect substitute.

Chickpea Sloppy Joes Ingredients and Preparation

2 tablespoon olive oil
1 can chickpeas, drained and smashed
1 teaspoon Liquid Aminos
1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon garlic
1 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon basil
1/2 cup vegan mozzarella

Heat up skillet and layer with olive oil.
In a bowl, mix mashed chickpeas with Liquid Aminos, cumin, coriander, and garlic.
Pour chickpea mixture into skillet and stir until evenly browned. Add tomato sauce.

Melt in the vegan cheese and remove from heat.

Spread on bread and sprinkle with extra basil.
