This is a vegan version of Sloppy Joe's from the cookbook La Dolce Vegan by Sara Kramer. Quick and simple and tastes fantastic! L picked this recipe totally at random, and I am SO glad she did! I substituted 1 TBSP tamari and 1 TBSP of Bragg's Liquid Aminos for the Vegan Worcestershire sauce. The original simmering time for the recipe is listed below, I probably simmered mine closer to 25-30 minutes before the rice was tender.

I got great reviews from the gang at my house on this dish. I did add some corn to the dish and just eyeballed the amount of mustard and maple syrup. I left out the tofu as I was too lazy to crumble it up. I did find I needed to add a few splashes of water to get my rice to fully cook. This is an easy dish to put together and has great flavour. Thanks for the recipe.
