Here’s a vegan burger-type entree made even simpler by the fact that you need not even make, fry, and flip patties. Pinto beans and quinoa team up to make a great, high-protein sloppy joe filling. Serve with any of VegKitchen’s potato salads  or any of the tasty slaws in A Slew of Slaws.  Finish with a dessert of fresh fruit. This menu is likely to become a fixture in your repertoire if you have a penchant for simple, hearty meals, and it’s a great choice for hungry teens.
Serves: 4 to 6
Combine the quinoa with 1 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a slow boil, then lower the heat, cover, and simmer until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
Heat the oil in a medium skillet. Add the onion and sauté until translucent. Add the bell pepper and sauté until both are golden.
Add the remaining ingredients except the last two, and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook over medium-low heat, loosely covered, for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let the skillet stand off the heat for 5 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle further and for the quinoa to absorb the tomatoey flavors.
For each serving, spoon some of the filling onto the bottoms of whole-grain rolls and cover with the tops. Or, you can serve these open-faced.
