Textured Vegetable Protein Sloppy Joes

  • 1 Tbsp Honey (optional)
  • 1-3/4 cups Water (hot)
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Onion medium-sized, chopped
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper medium-sized, cored, seeded and chopped
  • 1 can Tomato Paste (6oz can)
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 tsp Oregano, Mediterranean ground
  • 1/4 cup Ketchup
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce *
  • 2 cups TVP® (Textured Vegetable Protein)


In a medium bowl combine the hot water with the 2 cups TVP. Set aside while preparing the chopped onion and green pepper.

Heat a nonstick skillet, add the olive oil and quickly saute the chopped onion, green pepper and minced garlic. Cook until onion is slightly translucent and green pepper has softened slightly. Add the TVP.

Mix the tomato paste with the 1/2 cup water and seasonings and stir into the skillet. Bring to a boil, taste and add salt if desired. Sauce should be thick, but spreadable; add a little more water if needed.

Spoon sauce on bottom half of split Kaiser Roll. Pile on lettuce and cheese (if desired) and top with other half of bun.

*Most Worcestershire Sauce contains anchovies, but there are some varieties that are vegetarian.

Makes 8 Sloppy Joe Sandwiches.

Good recipe. I was using tube tomato paste and was not sure I had enough. Next time I will use canned tomato paste.
