This recipe is from The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook which is the most crunchy hippie cookbook around. But, these turned pretty damn awesome. You might want to reduce the water a little bit, as mine were quite messy.

Sloppy Joes
Saute 1 large onion, diced and 2 medium green peppers, diced in some oil.
Add:
1 1/2 c boiling water
2 1/2 c tomato sauce
1-2 tbs chili powder
pinch of pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs mustard
1 tbs sugar
1 1/2 c dry TVP
simmer for 20 minutes and serve on buns.

this made me laugh because:
1.  My darling husband is vegetarian (as am I) and;
2.  He HATES vegetables

So, I can relate to your dillema.  I have perfected the "kid food" style of cooking that is very similar to real meat while still being vegetarian.  I ususally just slightly tailor normal recipes to use morningstar or boca that we get at the supermarket, and I can tell you that we absolutely do not exceed $20 for 2 people...  Here's the latest fav I came up with:

Fake Steak Fajitas:

1 pkg. Morningstar Farms Steak Strips
1 medium yellow onion, cut into strips
1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
1 lime
1 bunch cilantro
2 cloves garlic
Oil
1 pkg fajita-size tortillas
salsa, if you want

first microwave the "steak" until heated.  Then, put in a bowl juice of the lime, a little oil, chopped garlic, and choppped cilantro and stir.  Let sit to marinade for about 15 min.
Heat a wok or pan with a little more oil and dump the "steak" and marinade in and sautee until brown and crispy.  Add the peppers and onions and sautee more until tender but not limp.

Serve up with warmed tortillas and maybe some spanish rice as a side. This is a texture thing, and I guarantee that he will lose his mind.

good luck!

Circus' homemade sloppy joes sound good.  I was going to mention that Manwich sauce is actually vegan, so it's great if you need something super quick.  Just cook up some soy "ground beef", add in a can of Manwich and serve on buns.  My boyfriend and I enjoy them from time to time. Smiley

My boyfriend insisted that we use manwich next time we make these. Neither of use are actually veggie/vegan, we just try eat healthy food and we're cheap as can be. The recipe is great because they taste JUST like real sloppy joes (according to the boy- Im scared of real ones!) and uses only like half a package of Bob's Redmill TVP.

Cheap is always good but I am the same way...I still like to eat healthy.  I'm going to try out that recipe with the TVP.  I didn't think about using that before, but it sounds like a good idea.  Smiley

we've always used manwich and some morning star burger crumbles for sloppy joes simple, fast, and easy

Are veggie sloppy joes any better than the real kind? I've found that a lot of things taste better veggie, but I'm still afraid of sloppy joes...

I really like the ones made out of TVP. It almost has an identical texture. I'm kinda grossed out by fake meat products so I can't say anything about that.
