Sneaky Sloppy Joes



Summer is just around the corner. That means more RV trips for those of us that arenít full-timers and more summer-style dishes. Nothing says summer like Sloppy Joes eaten outside on a campsite picnic table. Since most RV kitchens are notoriously tight on space, Iím all about making meals that are easy to make in an RV kitchen. Not only do they need to be easy to make, they also need to be budget and farm-animal friendly. This Sloppy Joe recipe fits all of the criteria. And I call them sneaky because theyíve got three veggies snuck right into the recipe which makes it taste even more awesome! These Sloppy Joes also make a great potluck dish.

The main ingredient in this dish is not ground beef. Instead, it uses textured vegetable protein (TVP). TVP is a fabulous vegetarian substitute in any recipe that calls for ground beef, ground turkey, ground buffalo, ground armadillo, ground road kill or any other meat one chooses to ground. TVP is made from defatted soy flour. I donít really know what that means, but it sounds slimming. It resembles Grape Nuts and can be found in many grocery store bulk bins. This stuff is so great because it is cheap and has a long shelf life.

Makes 4 servings






Ingredients:

* 2 cups TVP
* 2 cups water
* Ĺ medium onion, finely diced
* 2 stalks celery, finely diced
* 2 carrots, finely diced
* 10 ounces marinara sauce (my favorite is Newmanís Own)
* 3 tablespoons ketchup
* 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
* 2 tablespoons water
* 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
* 3 teaspoons brown sugar
* 2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
* 1 teaspoon dry mustard
* Ĺ tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
* Ĺ teaspoon garlic powder
* Ĺ teaspoon pepper

Instructions:
Combine water and TVP and stir until the mixture resembles pale ground beef. Boil 2 cups of water in a small pot on the stove. Chop up the onions, celery, and carrots and put them in the boiling water. Reduce heat and simmer for about 8 minutes. Lightly grease a skillet. Put on stove on medium heat. Combine all of the rest of the ingredients in the skillet. Drain the veggies and stir them in with the rest of the Sloppy Joe mix on the stove. Heat for about 10 minutes.
