READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kree6528

I've been searching for a vegetarian sloppy joe recipe I really like, and I finally found it. This one is total comfort food! They remind me a lot of my great aunt's sloppy joes. If you've never cooked with TVP before, give it a try! I started using it recently, and it tastes amazingly like meat! It really takes on the flavor of whatever you cook it with. I got this recipe from Heather Van Vorous at

We were halfway through dinner before I told my family it was meatless. My husband had figured I was using ground turkey instead of beef because of the diference in color. We will definitely be eating this again, especially when I forget to thaw out meat for dinner....
