Manwich sauce, it turns out, is vegan. Mixed with Boca ground "meat" (textured vegetable protein), it makes a pretty good sandwich, which is nearly indistinguishable from a ground beef sloppy joe--and much tastier than one made with ground turkey. I suppose it is not entirely surprising that a sauce as strongly flavored as that pretty much overrides the taste of whatever you dunk in it. Anyway, it's even faster and easier than using ground meat (you just open the pouch and heat in the microwave for a few minutes) and it's basically all protein with a tiny bit of sugar. I'm not saying that a gourmet would swoon or anything, but I've always liked sloppy joes, and it's nice to have something easy to take to the office, or a dinner I can put together in ten minutes when I get home late.
