Gluten-Free-Vegan-Sloppy-Joes-Nachos Recipe

Gluten Free Vegan Sloppy Joe Nachos

As a rule, I don’t believe in the concept of “kid food.” My children just ate food; the same food we grown-ups ate. I never thought I needed to “dumb down” their food choices and as a result, limit their palates.

Having said that, I am also a huge fan of food that would normally be considered “kid food.” Like sloppy Joes. Seriously, I love them.

I also love nachos. Nachos are almost the perfect food – everything you would want to eat in one tasty bite.

I decided to try to put these two foods together. And I needed to make the dish vegan. A challenge, yes. Impossible, no!

In place of ground beef, typically used in both sloppy Joes and nachos, I used Kim’s Simple Meals Burger mix – a vegan, healthy meat alternative with no soy.

If you feel the need to give your children “kid food,” these Gluten Free Vegan Sloppy Joe Nachos are one great suggestion. And a lot healthier than a lot of other choices. And the best part? I think you’re gonna love them too!

    I think there is soy in the ingredients of the Kim’s burger mix. But looks good.
