ooohhh owie owie owie..just blow on it, ow! bad idea..what are you thinking Neshanne blowing on a cut...okay run it under cold water.. oooh that stings, Jake could you please get me a bandaid.
This is a typical scenario in my house when it comes to me and knifes in the kitchen. I seem to almost always without fail cut my self, sometimes its a nick, no biggy or like tonight a deep cut.
I CURSE you 60 minutes! (pumping my first in the air) if it wasn't for your damn dramatic music at climatic times in the program I wouldn't have glanced at the t.v while sliceing through the kaiser roll and the meaty part of my thumb at the same time. I guess thats what I get for watching t.v while trying to cook.
You know whats worse about cuts on your hands, you know the minute you start doing the dishes or take a shower its going to sting! Oh well it didn't stop me from enjoying our yummy and very filling vegetarian sloppy joes, which are packed with lots of protein and some added heat with jalapenos.
By the way I love making sloppy joes because it means we will have leftovers for lunch the next day. Can't wait!
Vegetarian Sloppy Joes
By Oishii Treats
Yields about 6 Servings
Whole Wheat Kaiser Rolls (or your favorite bread, hoagie etc.)
1 Tablespoon Olive oil
1 Medium yellow Onion, diced
1 Red or Orange Bell pepper, diced
1 Cup Button Mushrooms, diced
1 14.5 oz can of Pinto Beans, drained
1-2 Tablespoons Jarred sliced Jalapenos, chopped into small pieces (I used the Louisiana brand)
1 8oz can of Rotel zesty tomato and green chile sauce
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/3 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/3 teaspoon dried Basil
1/3 teaspoon dried Oregano
2 Cups frozen Morning Star beef crumbles
Heat the oil in a large pan on medium high heat. Add the diced onions, diced pepper, diced mushrooms and garlic. Saute for 2-3 minutes or until the onions are translucent and the peppers are soft.
Add the pinto beans and using a potato masher or fork, mash the beans lightly. its okay to leave some of the beans whole. Add your rotel sauce and spices turn the heat down to about medium and simmer for 10 minutes to thicken.
Stir in your frozen beef crumbles and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Serve on toasted kaiser rolls.
Well I better go change my bandaid out now.
