Vegan Sloppy Joes

1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. molasses
1/2 lb. tofu, crumbled
1 6-oz. can tomato paste
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 small onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
Oregano, to taste
Chili pepper, to taste
1 small jar mushrooms, sliced
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Sandwich buns, tortillas, or pita bread

• Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and add the molasses. Add the crumbled tofu and let it brown, stirring to prevent burning.
• Add the tomato paste and mix well, adding water to bring to the desired consistency. Stir in the mustard, onion, and tomatoes, then add the oregano and chili powder and continue mixing.
• Stir in the mushrooms, ketchup, and vinegar and season with the salt and pepper.
• When thoroughly heated, serve on toasted sandwich buns or in tortillas or pita shells.

    I make something like this, but it’s way easier. It’s just mixed frozen veggies, cooked lentils, Sloppy Joe sauce (the kind I get is vegan), some veggie broth and some very basic seasonings.

    It’s a lot easier than this, but this is a great idea for Veggie Joes. 😉

    I make almost the same thing – but with lentils instead of tofu.
    And a little less other “stuff” – just organic tomato paste & sauce, spicy mustard, oregano and honey or maple syrup. We call them “snobby joes”!
