    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup crumbled dried tempeh
    • 1/2 onion, chopped
    • 1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
    • barbecue sauce (I use a low carb brand)
    • 2 slices thick bread (whole grain or low carb)
    • mustard
    • 2 slices reduced-fat cheese (optional)
    • 1 cup prepared Coleslaw (I also use a reduced calorie version of Coleslaw Coleslaw)


    1. 1
      In a microwavable bowl, combine the tempeh, onions, and green peppers. Add about 1/4 - 1/2 of a cup of warm water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave until the tempeh and veggies are soft - about 2 1/2 minutes (There shouldn't be much liquid at this point; if the mixture is water-logged, drain it and continue.).
    2. 2
      Add enough of the barbecue sauce to the bowl so that the mixture, as you stir it up, has the consistancy of a "normal" sloggy joe. (You can also add a little garlic powder or mustard or even ketchup if you like.).
    3. 3
      Toast the bread slices. Place them on a baking sheet. Slaver each slice with mustard and then add the sloppy joe mixture. Top with cheese, if using.
    4. 4
      Broil the sandwich over high heat until the cheese melts.
    5. 5
      Remove the sandwiches from the oven and place each on a plate. Add the coleslaw on top. Serve with fork and knife (and napkins :).
