  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, celery, carrot, green pepper, and garlic: saute until tender. Stir in tomatoes, chili powder, tomato paste, vinegar, and pepper. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in kidney beans, and cook an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Cut a 1/4 inch slice off the top of each kaiser roll; set aside. Hollow out the center of each roll, leaving about 1/2 inch thick shells; reserve the inside of rolls for other uses.
  4. Spoon bean mixture evenly into rolls and replace tops. Serve immediately.

My boyfriend couldn't eat this; he said that it tasted of nothing but chili pepper. I thought that it was all right but I don't think I'll make it again.

Made this a couple of nights ago and, yes, it IS delish! I didn't have any kaiser rolls though, so we just ate them on wheat buns like normal sloppy joes. My dad couldn't put his finger on it,...

This recipe was delicious and very filling. All the other vegetarian Sloppy Joe recipes I tried had TVP or veggie ground round, and they were too rich and not filling. I think the 1 1/2 tables...

This is great! Even my carnivore husband found them delicious and has asked for them again. I play around with the spices to suit our tastes. I add more chili powder and a couple of dashes worc...

I made this dish for a lunch get together with a bunch of moms and it received rave reviews. I served it over rice and lessened the chili powder to 1 tbsp. I prefer it over the real sloppy joe...

This was good, but way more like a veggie chili than a sloppy joe. I loved how inexpensive it was. I already had the spices, onion and celery, bought everything else and some nice big wheat roll...

Definitely needs cheese added to make it stick together a little better. I added Monterrey Jack and that was a great finishing touch. Otherwise, it ends up much like just putting chili on a bu...
