1 C TVP, ground beef style (textured vegetable protein)
7/8 C water (1 C less 2 Tbsp.)
1 Packet Sloppy Joes seasoning mix (McCormick is vegan, otherwise watch out for natural flavors)
1 Can (6 oz) tomato paste
1 1/4 C water
In a large frying pan boil the 7/8 C water. Then add the TVP, stir, and let sit for 5 minutes.
Add the seasoning, water and tomato paste (open both ends of the can and push the paste through with one of the lids). Cook until thick.
