Manwich and I are totally fighting right now.

I decided to make vegetarian sloppy joes for dinner last night and so I went to the store to get some Manwich. Turns out the second ingredient (after tomato paste) is high fructose corn syrup. Grrrrr.

So instead of getting angry I decided to get even.

Here is my recipe for Sloppy Joes:

1 package of Ray's Saytan

1 8oz can tomato paste

1/2 green pepper (diced)

1/2 onion (diced)

2 handfuls fresh spinach (chopped)

1/4 cup A1 style steak sauce or worcester sauce

1 garlic clove (chopped/crushed)



cream of tartar

burger buns

Start by sauteing the pepper, onion and spinach (in a dash of oil if you like) with salt and pepper. Add tomato paste, steak sauce and garlic. Stir and simmer.

In a separate pan drain and dice Ray's Saytan and saute with salt, pepper and a dash of cream of tartar. After 7-10 minutes (stirring frequently) add sloppy joe sauce to the saytan. Stir for 5ish minutes and then load onto a (whole wheat) burger bun and enjoy!

Good for you!! Curious about the cream of tartar-- what does that do?

we think it makes the non-meat have a more meat-like bite to it. there's a subtle difference between meatless meat cooked with c of t and that which is cooked without.

I was gonna ask the same thing about the cream of tartar - great minds and all that. :)
