Soy Sloppy Joes

This is a very child- and teen-friendly recipe, though anyone who is a child at heart will enjoy it. Texturized soy crumbles aim to imitate ground beef, but it’s not so much the flavor as the texture that does the trick. Find this product marketed under the Green Giant or Morningstar Farms brand name in the frozen foods section of large supermarkets, shelved near other soy-based meat analogs.
