Tempeh Sloppy Joes

A quick weeknight vegan dinner we enjoy served with a side salad.

 Tempeh is a fantastic fermented soy product which makes an amazing meat substitute that works in any recipe that calls for a ground meat. 

All of my ingredients are organic but if you can’t manage that, conventional ingredients will work fine too.

8 ounces of tempeh cubed (try to find Non GMO organic if you can)

1 tablespoon coconut oil (my oil of choice for cooking) but you can use olive oil

1 yellow onion, diced

1 red pepper diced small

2 cups fresh tomatoes, chopped or a 15 ounce can of diced tomatoes

1 tablespoon chile powder (more if you wish)

1 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons vegetarian Worchestershire sauce

1 teaspoon hot sauce (or more if you want them with a kick of heat)

4 whole grain buns, toasted

You should steam the tempeh for about 10 minutes.  Crumble or mash in a bowl.

In a pot  heat oil and cook onion until translucent.  Toss in the tempeh cubes and diced bell pepper and stir cooking for about 5 minutes.  Add fresh tomatoes or canned tomatoes and chili powder, Worchestershire, salt and pepper and hot sauce.  Simmer for about 10 minutes stirring.

Serve on toasted buns. 

Delicious.  Easy to make.
