Leftover Tofurky Sloppy Joes

By

Looking for a way to use up your extra leftover tofu turkey or Tofurkey? How about Sloppy Joe's? Just about everyone loves them, and when you're sick of the usual Thanksgiving foods, they'll be a nice change. Pack them up for the kids for lunch, or serve them for dinner with a healthy side salad.

Ingredients:

  • leftover Tofurky roast (about 1 1/2 cups, diced)
  • generous dash salt and pepper
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 3-4 hamburger buns, lightly toasted

Preparation:

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the onion and leftover Tofurky in olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Allow to cook, stirring frequently, for three to five minutes, until onions are soft.

Reduce heat to medium low. Allow to cook, stirring occasionally, until desired thickness is reached, about six to eight minutes.

If you have less leftover Tofurky, you may want to add less barbecue sauce and ketchup and adjust the seasonings accordingly. If you don't have enough leftover Tofurky, you can add some vegetarian baked beans to your sloppy joes.
