|Sloppy Joe on Whole Wheat Rye, Marinated Cucumbers and Steamed Kale with Green Goddess Dressing|
Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. The final result should be much thicker but still somewhat loose. We want them to be sloppy remember! Stir now and then.
When ready to eat, rub both sides of a toasted roll, hamburger bun or any type of bread with yellow or Dijon mustard. The mustard is not optional; it provides the characteristic tang and bite of the traditional Sloppy Joe.Pile the tempeh mixture on and sprinkle with 1-2 T. finely chopped onions or scallions. Assemble and enjoy, with plenty of napkins at hand.
