Got this from www.nasoya.com after a recent tofu & sloppy joe craving. Delish

This smells great while it's cooking! I had to drop the green pepper due to family allergy, but am used to adjusting all our recipes for that. The 1 T. of chili powder did seem high as the recipe warned (thanks!); I started with 1 tsp, expecting to increase it, but that was enough. It was good, but a little too 'Mexican food' tasting to pass for Sloppy Joes with the family. (Although I think it would be great with Mexican rice or black beans just as is, and may try it that way next time!) I went back and added 2-3 T. each of Bragg's Liquid Aminos and ground flax seed, to make it a little 'meatier' (and thicker) and about 1 T. each of brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce to give it more of a BBQ flavor and even out the tomato sauce a bit...personal preference. It all disappeared, though; will definitely make it through the menu rotation again. Thanks!
