Good recipe, but remember that Worcestershire sauce is NOT vegetarian unless you get a vegan version; regular Worcestershire has anchovies in it. Also, use brown sugar instead of the honey if cooking for vegans.
I've made this a number of times and love it. I'd give it 5 stars except I always have adjustments to make. I always add way more tomato sauce - usually the entire can worth. I tend to do less tempeh and more onion and bell pepper just because I like to load up on veggies where I can as well. I always double the garlic in any recipe too. Other than that, the flavors are spot on and this is a GREAT vegetarian alternative - and we're not even vegetarian! ;)
I had just bought my vegetarian worshtishire sauce and was surfing for a recipe to try it on... and voila'. This recipe whips up quickly. It's been over 14 years since I had a sloppy joe but this certainly reminded me of what I used to enjoy. Small amount of clean up involved- the flavors are good with sweet initial flavor and a spicy aftertaste. I agree with another reviewer my 8 year old thought it was too spicy though I thought it was perfect. (I'm a mild salsa type gal). Very good flavor I don't think it could pass as the real deal but certainly will pass this on to EVERY vegetarian/vegan I know (I think vegan use br. sugar in lieu of honey). I used MorningStar for my tempeh/meat substitute.
After a long search for tempeh at the grocery strore I came up empty handed so I used veggie ground round. So this rating may be a little "off". However I found the combination of spices to be just to much will not be using this recipe again.
Very good and a great way to use tempeh (which we love but always use in stirfry). It wasn't as saucy as I expected so I added more tomato sauce and a little ketchup. Good spices for us actually too spicy for my toddlers so I'll cut back on the cayene and some others next time.
Wow this is really good! I used extra firm tofu instead of tempeh since it was what I had on hand. I halved the recipe but stuck to the 1/4 cup tomato sauce. I left out the celery seed since I didn't have that on hand either and I used vegan worchestershire sauce. This would be a great quick weeknight meal!
In the end the general consensus in my house was that this was pretty good but probably won't be made again because the 20g of fat is more than we would like not because it wasn't good though. It did need a few modifications. After I had followed the recipe exactly and sampled the results I was pretty disappointed. As other reviewers have said it needed more tomato sauce and I added about an extra tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. It was terribly dry and definitely did not resemble any sloppy joe I had ever had. With the additions it was much better and as leftovers actually seemed to be much more tasty than the initial serving.
