Sloppy joes, slop sloppy joes. Take a trip to lunch lady land with these tempeh sandwiches that take all of about 10 minutes to make. (I adapted this recipe.)
|NOT made out of yesterdays meatloaf.|
1/2 c. barbeque sauce (I use Trader Joe’s Kansas City style)
3/4 c. water
1 package of tempeh (I looooove Trader Joe’s 3 Grain tempeh with brown rice and quinoa)
1 T. olive oil
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
Wash and dice peppers. Mix bbq sauce and water in a bowl. Crumble tempeh into sauce mixture and set aside. Heat up a skillet over medium heat. Add oil to pan, swirl around to coat, add peppers, cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tempeh and sauce to pan. Preheat broiler. Bring tempeh mixture to a simmer and stir occasionally for a minute or two. Meanwhile, toast hamburger buns open face under the broiler.
Suggested side dishes:
- broiled broccoli (that’s what we had)
- potato salad
- ears of corn
- whatever you have lying around?
- or just eat two sandwiches
