Sloppy Moe's

Basically I have taken my standard Sloppy Joe recipe and substituted vegetarian soy crumbles for the ground beef or turkey that one would normally use.  Then I called them Moe'e because that rhymes with Joe's.  See what I did there. 

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 medium onion, minced
1 medium garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 package vegetarian soy crumbles
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 cup tomato puree
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup water
hot sauce to taste
6 hamburger buns
  1. Warm the oil over medium heat in a large skillet.  Add the onion and garlic and cook until tender.  To this add the chili powder and soy crumbles, cooking the crumbles until slightly browned. 
  2. Add the brown sugar, tomato puree, ketchup, water and hot sauce (if using).  Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the mixture is thickened, about 10 minutes. 
These calories are for the Sloppy Moe mixture only as the calories on hamburger buns will vary wildly. 

Serves 6 (1/2 cup) servings:  134 calories, 1 gram of fat, and 4 grams of fiber
