Some ingredients in this recipe are not suitable for all diets. Here's how you can modify it.
If you are following a vegan diet, you can replace the ground beef with canned or cooked lentils. Not all barbecue sauces are vegan. Check the ingredients for honey, anchovies, or milk products. Most barbecue sauces and ketchups are made with sugar, which could be processed with bone char. If you plan to omit barbecue sauce, add a touch of vegan-friendly sweetener to balance the flavor. Heinz ketchup is vegan-friendly. Worcestershire sauce contains anchovies, so don't use it. Whole-wheat gluten-free burger buns are usually free of milk products commonly found in regular burger buns.
Sloppy Joes are a fun way to cap off a hard workweek. This simple but delicious recipe is a must-try.
