    smellyvegetarian's Note:

    This was one of my favorite tempeh recipes for a long time, and I am surprised it is not already posted here! It comes from the May 1998 edition of Cooking Light, and it is just perfect when you want a warm comfort food-ish yet vegetarian meal! I recommend cutting the veggies very small to get the most authentic "sloppy joe" texture.

      This was very tasty. Next time I might try to precook the carrot pieces in the microwave a little so they're not so hard. This was the first time I used tempeh, was a little unwieldy to "crumble" but I managed!

      I made lots of changes, all of which I would do again. I guessed what was an appropriate amount of veggies, and threw them in the mini-processor, so they were finely shredded. I diced the tempeh very fine, sauteed it with some garlic salt, and then pulled it out while I sauteed the veggies (also with garlic salt). Then I added the tempeh and the rest of the ingredients (more water and barbecue sauce than called for, one can of tomatoes with chilies, eyeballed chili and pepper, and no salt). I let it all simmer for about 15 minutes. Delicious--spicy and complex. I will make this again.

      I just loved this dish! It hit the spot and was great as leftovers the next day too. I did add some fresh tomato too, chopped up. I used Thai chili sauce. Thanks for a keeper! Into my favorites it goes. :) Made for Vegetarian Swap-Sept. 2010.
