Saucy Tempeh Sloppy Joes

I grew up eating sloppy joe sandwiches and can't get enough of the messy deliciousness. Even though I eat meatless once or twice a week, I still enjoy the rich and hearty flavor of meat. I use tempeh here, which is a fermented soy product that is high in protein and has a savory, nutty, earthy flavor. Its taste and texture work well in dishes that usually feature ground beef, making these tempeh sloppy joes a dinner winner. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
