Sloppy Joes

1-2 Tbs canola oil
2/3 cup minced onion
2/3 cup minced green pepper
1 pkg extra firm tofu, mashed
6 Tbs. natural or organic ketchup (these contain no high fructose corn syrup)
3-6 Tbs chili powder
1/3 cup water
1/2 tsp. salt
Pepper, to taste
Whole grain burger buns

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and green pepper and sauté until the vegetables are well cooked, about 5 minutes. Add the tofu and sauté for another 15 minutes, until the tofu is completely cooked.
  2. Add the ketchup, chilli sauce, water, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and continue to cook until water is absorbed. Add a little more water if the mixture is too dry.
  3. Spoon onto lightly toasted burger buns.
