  1. Place the block of tofu onto a plate, then place another plate on top. Set a 3 to 5 pound weight on top (a container filled with water works well). Press the tofu for 20 to 30 minutes, the drain off and discard the accumulated liquid.
  2. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  3. Cut the block of tofu down the middle, then widthwise into 1/4 inch thick squares. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 6 minutes, the turn the pieces over, and continue baking 5 minutes more. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and allow to cool. Once the tofu is cool enough to handle, cut into 1/4 inch dice.
  5. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion and green pepper; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the diced tofu, ketchup, sugar, mustard, and vinegar; season to taste with salt. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10 minutes. Serve on the whole wheat hamburger buns.

i made this the other night. i really liked it. i don't eat sloppy joe's too often, but i really like this recipe. my husband and two year old didn't have any complaints, either. i plan on m...

The first time I made it not it was ok, but not a fan of the texture. The second time my friend said to press the tofu and then cut to smaller pieces way better!

Tastes very close to sloppy joes w/ ground turkey! I added a little minced garlic and put it in a processor to grind it up a little.

I second the first review, prepared by direction and even attempted to ground up the tofu, but that didn't really help either. Was fun to make, not so good to eat...

This is great as a base recipe, as written its 4 stars. I added some brown sugar and BBQ sauce to kick up the flavors a bit. The whole family loved it and my 6 year old had no clue it was meat...

This was a really quick & tasty meal!!!

i really did not like these, could taste mustard a ton
