This recipe is a great choice for a Meatless Monday, yet still lets you convince the kids that it's a Sloppy Joe!

I serve the finished product on whole-wheat hamburger buns.


  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup carrot, shredded
  • 1 can of chili beans, undrained
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice (I use the instant boil-in-a-bag version)
  • 1/4 cup hickory-smoked barbecue sauce, more or less based on your preference


  1. Add olive oil to pan and heat on medium-high
  2. Add onions, bell pepper, and carrots and cook for 3-4 minutes
  3. Add rice, chili beans, and barbecue sauce and cook for approximately 10-15 minutes, stirring frequently to heat thoroughly
