Sloppy Steves

What you need: 

1 lb firm tofu, frozen overnight, squeezed dry, and crumbled (you can also do this without
freezing, just squeeze dry and crumble)
1 large onion, chopped
1 large red or green pepper, chopped
2 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
2 tablespoon soy sauce or tamari sauce
1.5 cups ketchup
2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar or sucanat or molasses
1 tablespoon vinegar (red or white)
2 tablespoon lemon juice
Your favorite hot sauce to taste
black pepper to taste
buns or bread or rice

What you do: 

Crumble tofu into non stick frying pan (or use an oil spray, or a little oil). Add onion, pepper, and nutritional yeast. Saute all three until tofu begins to brown (this part takes a while, but you don't need to brown if you don't want to). Add other ingredients, except buns. Simmer 10 minutes, stirring.
Serve on vegan bread or rice or buns.
Notes: you can add minced or grated carrot, leave out the vegetables, add minced celery, adjust the sweetening, whatever...

this was really good. i added a tablespoon more of nutritional yeast and a few splashes of worcestershire sauce (because everything tastes better with extra nutritional yeast and worcestershire sauce...right?...or is that just me?) i also added red pepper flakes and loads of serrano pepper hot sauce.


I made this recipe because of all the great reviews it got and it was NASTY!!! Ick, what a waste of ingredients!!!!! >:(


I made the sauce as written but thought it was a little too sweet so I added 1/2 teaspoon each of:  cumin, chili powder, red pepper flakes, oregano.  This added some spice/heat and cut down on the sweetness.  Very, very tasty!!  It was even better the next day!


Really good!


EXCELLENT!!! and i don't even like sloppy joes


This recipe is fantastic!!  My changes:
1 lb Boca crumbles instead of tofu (had it both ways and I liked it much better that way), no sugar, 2 cups ketsup, diced mushrooms, no nutritional yeast.
