Six Bean Veggie Sloppy Joes

Six Bean Veggie Sloppy Joes
1/2 small onion, chopped
1/2 can five bean mix (no other ingredients added), half of a 540mL can, save the liquid
1/4 cup halved green beans
1/2 cup canned pumpkin purée
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
salt, pepper, paprika, as desired

In a small frying pan over medium heat, sautée the onion in a little oil until softened but not browned. Add the beans and stir-fry for a few minutes until softened. Add the remaining ingredients, including bean liquid, and bring to a boil until thickened. Then simmer, stirring occasionally, until cooked and soft. Mixture can be puréed for a smoother texture if desired. Makes enough for two large servings or four appetizer servings. Recipe may easily be multiplied.
This is another vegetarian sloppy joe recipe, however this one was never meant to be burgers in the first place (see: {Vegetarian Sloppy Joes}). It is soft with plenty of flavor from the pumpkin and plenty of protein from six different types of beans. Add herbs and spices as desired. This mixture may be served on bread or a bun, on baguette, as a pasta sauce, on a pizza crust, or just as is.
