Vegan Sloppy Joes - Quick Easy Recipe

Tempeh to the rescue again!  We use tempeh as our meat replacement over all other alternatives.  Tempeh is  easy to work with - simply dice it into tiny cubes and simmer it with your favorite veggies, oils, and spices.  We have made taco "meat", churizo, and now these Sloppy Joes.  The recipe below takes little ingredients,  quick to make, and low cost at the store! You can add many other ingredients if you like - let's just keep it easy!
