The meat won’t be missed in my version of sloppy joes. It tastes like the classic recipe, but is lower in fat and a great option for vegetarians. —Linda Winter, Oak Harbor, Washington

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen vegetarian meat crumbles
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1 can (8 ounces) no-salt-added tomato sauce
