Place one tablespoonful of lemon juice or white vinegar in a measuring cup. Add vegan milk until the liquid in the cup reaches the 1-cup line. Stir with a fork, and you’re done!

5. Messy but Easy Sloppy Joes

Combine one bag of vegan beef crumbles (Boca, Gardein, or Beyond Meat work best!) with the sauce and microwave until hot. Serve on top of your favorite hamburger buns or rolls and enjoy!

P.S. This works great with enchilada sauce, too, for killer enchiladas!
