  • Manwitch? Like the sloppy joe? Of course! Buy the tofu veggie crumbles and use that. I believe its by Morning Star and its in the frozen food section.

  • I can't see why you couldn't, but I don't know why you would want to! There are some super-easy recipes for sloppy joes out there which don't contain high fructose corn syrup, regular corn syrup, guar gum, xanthan gum and carob bean gum. A quick internet search brought this up for me:

  • US soy products are most all round up ready's...heavily sprayed crop. I would try it in organic~

  • DO you have to buy the crumbles? Would crumbling it yourself not work? I have no idea I usually cube and pan sear it.

  • Snobby Joes (from Veganomicon)
    1 cup uncooked lentils
    4 cups water
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 medium yellow onion, diced small
    1 green pepper, diced small
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 - 3 Tablespoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons oregano
    1 teaspoon salt
    8 oz can tomato sauce
    1/4 cup tomato paste
    3 tablespoons maple syrup
    1 tablespoon yellow mustard (wet mustard)
    4 to 6 whole wheat buns
    Put the lentils in a small sauce pot and pour in 4 cups water. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, until lentils are soft. Drain and set aside. About 10 minutes before the lentils are done boiling, preheat a medium soup pot over medium heat. Sauté the onion and pepper in the oil for about 7 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and sauté a minute more. Add the cooked lentils, the chili powder, oregano and salt and mix.

  • Add the tomato sauce and tomato paste. Cook for about 10 minutes. Add the maple syrup and mustard and heat through. Turn the heat off and let sit for about 10 minutes, so that the flavors can meld

  • That would be interesting! But I don't like Manwich myself. My kids and everyone else in the family eats it. So I cook it a lot on game nights. It makes for an easy meal and I have a sandwich. But I'm not sure if they would eat it if I made it with Tofu!
