Sloppy Joes Too
From: Julie Bernstein

Here's my favorite.
Why? Because it's delicious!!
Very hearty and filling.
I make it whenever I've accumulated enough tofu chunks in the freezer.
(I always buy the Mori-Nu silken kind and rarely does a recipe call for that exact amount - 12.something oz - so I save the rest in a freezer bag.)

Recipe By: John and Mary McDougall;
Source: The McDougall Program;
Serving Size: 8 Preparation Time :0:35

  • 1 yellow onion -- chopped
  • 1 green pepper -- chopped
  • 1 pound tofu -- frozen and thawed
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey-style sweetener (eg maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • whole wheat buns
Squeeze the excess water from the thawed tofu and crumble.
Saute the onion and green pepper in a small amount of water until softened.
Add the tofu and the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Cook about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Serve on whole wheat buns with your choice of garnishes.

NOTE: I hate peppers; I substitute two stalks celery. I also substitute maple syrup for the honey.

No way these will serve 8; I make a half-recipe and eat the whole thing in one sitting.
(Of course, I AM a little stuffed afterwards, but they're so yummy it's worth it. :) )
