 My first recipe listing and one of my alltime favorites.  Taken from 
 Vefetarian Times September 1994.
 1 cup TVP
 1/2 container lf tofu
 3/4 cup boiling water
 1 med green pepper
 1 med onion
 1 stalk celery minced
 1 sm carrot minced (or grated)
 1 Tbs molasses
 1 1/2 Tbs red wine vinegar
 16 oz tomato puree
 Couple of garlic cloves minced
 1 - 2 Tbs chili powder (to taste)
 1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce (to taste) or hot pepper flakes
 salt if you want
 In a small bowl combine TVP and water, set aside
 In a large, deep skillet heat a sauteing liquid of choice (veggie broth 
 works well, 1Tbs or two). Add green pepper, onion, celery and carrot; 
 saute until veggies are soft, about 5 - 7 minutes.  Reduce heat to 
 medium; add TVP, tofu and the rest. Mix, cook stirring occassionaly, 
 about 3-5 more minutes.  
 Personally, with this recipe I choose some whole wheat bread and take out 
 the inside part (like I did as a child) and put the sloppy joes inside. 
 You can also mix with macaroni for a warm salad.  the original recipe 
 does not call for tofu but I am not a huge TVP fan and like the mixture.  
 I also play with the veggies and tomato sauce amounts.  I have not eaten 
 ground meat in almost eight years and the recipe is pretty close to my 
 old memories.  ENJOY!!!!
