  • 1 pkg. extra firm tofu
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 3-4 mushrooms (more or less if desired), diced
  • 1/2 cup peas- 125 mL
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoon tamari
  • 2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon vegan Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tablespoon vegan red wine vinegar
  • 2 cups crushed tomatoes - 500 mL
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • hot sauce or chili to taste
  • vegan buns- Portuguese or whole wheat
  • kaisers work really well


Crumble tofu into small pieces, fry in a decent sized frying pan (should be a couple of inches thick) with a bit of olive oil or non stick cooking spray. Add nutritional yeast, garlic, and vegetables (not the tomatoes). Saute about 10 minutes, being careful not to burn- it's ok if the tofu browns a bit.

Add tamari, mustard, molasses, vinegar, tomatoes, hot sauce, lemon juice and oregano. Simmer a few minutes until heated through. You might want to add a bit of water or vegetable stock if it gets very thick.

Serve on open faced buns- its great if the buns have been toasted in a toaster oven or the oven a bit first.

This recipe was inspired by 'Sloppy Steves' on this website, and most of the seasonings come from it! (This is just my personal modification).

Great source of iron and protein, plus lots of other great nutrients!
