And now for an easy, filling and healthy vegetarian dish that our son Adam absolutely adores and says tastes just like the real thing...it's a product by Fantastic Foods called "Vegetarian Sloppy Joe" for under $3.00 in Whole Foods (and many other supermarkets).
This recipe serves about 4-5 people and my guess is you and your family will love it. Best of all it will take you only a few minutes to prepare.
To make the recipe, all you need on hand is a can of tomato paste and one teaspoon of oil and you're all set.
I made the Sloppy Joe for dinner recently and served it in a bun, along with tomato slices, lettuce, and sauteed Tofu slices (prepared using a bit of canola oil and some Bragg) and it was delicious!
Make sure you take the excess oil off by putting the tofu slices on paper towel after sauteeing.
This Sloppy Joe recipe tastes yummy with spaghetti as well. You may want to add more paste so the sauce isn't as thick (or spicy). You can add sauteed onions and mushrooms, steamed veggies, or anything else you'd like according to your taste.
There are plenty of great Vegetarian Sloppy Joe recipes on-line that you can make from scratch, but I thought this might be easier, especially for those who don't have as much time.
Hope you enjoy!
