Sloppy Vegan Joe's

This is one of my favorite recipes.  I always make enough so that there are leftovers for lunches during the week.  Textured Vegetable Protein can be found in the bulk section of Fred Meyer, Winco, or Whole Foods.  Bob's Red Mill also packages it and can be found in the health food section of most stores.

Sloppy Vegan Joe's

1 tbs vegetable oil
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, finely diced
Pinch of salt and ground black pepper
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
3 tbs tomato paste
1 cup Kraft Original barbecue sauce
1 cup water
1 tbs balsamic vinegar
1 tsp hot sauce of choice

2 cups tvp (textured vegetable protien)
4 wheat french rolls, split
Barbecue sauce, for topping (optional)

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Add the bell peppers and garlic.  Saute until tender, about 3 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.

Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, barbecue sauce, water, balsamic vinegar, hot sauce and tvp to skillet.  Stir.  Simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes.  Serve on wheat rolls with extra barbecue sauce.
