Date: Fri, 21 Jun 1996 10:18:30 -0500 From: (David Wallis) My wife and I have developed this wonderful recipe for meatless "sloppy joes". I know there are other recipes in the archives, but this one is (I believe) different from all of them. Combine TVP, soy sauce, worcestersire sauce and water in a bowl and let set until the loquid is absorbed. Dice the onion and green pepper, and "sautee" in liquid of your choice. When the onion has started to brown a little, add the TVP and any remaining liquid. Slightly mash the beans and add to the TVP/onions. Add barbeque sauce of your choice. I use either homemade BBQ sauce, or a spicey brand like KC aAsterpiece. Sometimes I make it a little less spicey for the kids by using half spicey BBQ sauce and half catsup. Mix well, season to taste with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Simmer for at least 5 minutes to heat everything through. Serve on hamburger buns. Makes enough for about 8 sandwiches.
