Sloppy Joe Zucchini Boats

Sure, you can make this sloppy joe filling and eat it on a soft kaiser, but that’s so basic. I want to give you a healthier option so you can eat even more sloppy joe stuff.

Or, if you’re too lazy to prep the zucchini altogether, just pour the sloppy joe mixture into an oven-safe dish, top with the vegan cheese shreds, and bake for 20 minutes until melty! Serve with slices of garlic toast for dipping, a perfect last-minute party appie.

INGREDIENTS NO-BAKE GRAHAM CRUST 9 sheets (18 squares) vegan graham crackers 1⁄2 tsp sea salt 1⁄3 cup melted vegan butter PASSION FRUIT CURD
