Vegan & Gluten Free Sloppy Joe Recipe
Delicious vegan, gluten free sloppy joes with a smokey BBQ twist and amazing homemade potato chips with creamy chip dip. The ULTIMATE vegan BBQ food!
This was my recipe creation for our family Sunday BBQ. I decided to create a little bit of a twist on the traditional sloppy joe. This BBQ sauce is not your typical sloppy joe sauce. I created a very rich, smokey sauce and it turned out absolutely delicious! It is not as sweet as most BBQ sauce recipes, it has just enough sweetness to give the perfect flavor without being overly sweet.
When I realized that this sauce is not your typical sloppy joe flavor I worried a bit because my mom wanted sloppy joes for the BBQ because she was craving them. I warned her that I was so excited in my recipe creation mode that I didn't even think about the fact that this is NOT traditional sloppy joe sauce.
Lucky for me........My smokey BBQ sauce was a hit! Everyone loved the deep, rich smokey flavor.
Whew....Leave it up to me to worry and stress about my new recipe creation and if everyone will enjoy what I have created. It can be hard when you create something, you constantly worry if it will be well received. Creating recipes is my passion, but I also LOVE to create food that people enjoy.
My greatest joy is bringing joy to others through my food.

Homemade low fat potato chip Recipe
These were a hit at our summer BBQ!
Shake all ingredients in a freezer bag, place on baking sheets, do not let the chips touch or overlap. Bake 450 for 15-20 minutes. Watch carefully, depending on how thick or thin they are cut they will cook faster or slower. Half way through pull them out and using a spatula scrape them off the pan.
**Oil free version, omit oil and bake on parchment paper or a silpat.
Delicious Potato Chip Dip
This chip dip was amazing! I created this recipe for my family because they love my grandmas creamy chip dip. Give it a try next time to breakout the potato chips or the homemade potato chips at your BBQ! Enjoy!
