Vegan Sloppy Joes, an easy dinner for exhausted parents like me!

I know I’m supposed to be all energized and focused on my new year, new me bullsh*t. I’m not, I’m still exhausted from the holidays. Between post-Christmas exhaustion and a crazy work schedule, some nights I just want to make something for dinner that’s easy and somewhat healthy-ish. I literally just want to scoop sh*t onto a bread roll and call it a day. If you’re feeling the same way, this easy-peasy vegan Sloppy Joes recipe is for you.
