This is one of my favorite lunches when I'm pressed for time. It can easily be adjusted for more than one person. Add curry powder for a kick (I always do!).

I made this without the tofu, and I used white sugar instead of brown because I didn't have any, and it turned out great. The onions are really great in it. I just put all the ingredients into a bowl and microwaved it for 30 seconds and put it on my sandwich. It was delicious!

I baked some chicken breasts today to freeze for future use. I remembered that I had filed this recipe yesterday in my cookbook for Condiments & Sauces. Whipped it up in a flash today and added diced chickden. Rolled it in a tortilla. This made a VERY quick lunch, and it's VERY tasty. I'm going to make up a batch of this to freeze in ice trays, then store in the freezer. You can't beat this for ease and taste....not to mention versatility. Thanks!

Wow this was fabulous. I had never had a sloppy joe before and can't belive what I was missing. My husband who is a huge sloppy joe fan "LOVED" this! I used ground beef instead of tofu, minced onion in place of fresh and regular sugar instead of brown! Thank you for adding a staple dinner to my home menu!
