messy goodness

It's March Break, and for once I am home in the early evening with enough time to cook a really great meal. So what do I make? Quick and easy Sloppy Joes, of course! And man, are they ever delicious. It took me about 20 minutes to make this meal, prep time and all.

Sloppy Joes

1 1/2 cups Dry TVP
1 cup Vegetable broth
1 Onion, chopped
2 Green peppers, diced
3 Tbsp Olive oil
2 1/2 cups Tomato sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp Chili powder
1 tsp Salt
Black pepper to taste
1 Tbsp Soy sauce
1 Tbsp Mustard
1 Tbsp Sugar (I used organic cane sugar)

Soak the TVP in the vegetable broth until all liquid has been absorbed (this is a great time to chop your onion & peppers). Saute the onion and green pepper in olive oil. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until thoroughly hot. Serve on burger buns.
