Tempeh Sloppy Joes

Tempeh Sloppy Joes

Serve this with some baked sweet potato fries and you have a great meal.

1 package (8 ounces), tempeh, cubed
1 tablespoon olive oil or water
1 onion, small dice
1 bell pepper (red, yellow or orange), small dice
1 cup black or white beans
1 15 ounce can organic tomato sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder (or to taste)
½ teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
2 tablespoons vegan Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon hot sauce (or to taste)
4 buns, toasted

Steam tempeh for 10 minutes in a steamer basket placed in a pot filled with 2-3 inches water. Transfer tempeh to a bowl, and crumble with your hands (let cool slightly).
In a large sauce pan over medium heat, heat oil and sauté onion until translucent. Add bell pepper and tempeh, and sauté for a few minutes more, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Add tomato sauce, beans, chili powder, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce (if using). Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes or longer, stirring occasionally. Serve on toasted buns.

Yields: 4 servings
