Sloppy Joes

This dish reminds me of my childhood, minus the meat...which no one will even miss. Seriously.

1 cup of textured vegetable protein (TVP) or a bag of veggie crumbles
3/4 cup boiling water, not needed if using store bought veggie crumblesOlive oil for frying
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup red bell peppers, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
One 8 oz can tomato sauce
1/4 cup water
2 Tbs tomato paste
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbs light brown sugar
2 tsp red wine vinegar
Pepper to taste
Salt to taste
Burger Buns

If using TVP:

Stir TVP with boiling water in a medium bowl; let stand for five minutes until water is absorbed.

Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Cook onion, peppers and garlic until tender about 8-10 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients including TVP or store bought veggie crumbles. Stir until mixture is bubbly. Reduce heat to low and cook an additional 5 minutes.

Arrange the burger buns cut side up on a baking sheet and broil (toast) for 3 minutes or until lightly brown. Once done spoon filling on the bottom half of each bun and top with other half. And they are ready to eat.
