    1/4 cup canola oil
    1/2 a large onion, minced
    2 (8 ounce) packages tempeh
    1 minced green bell pepper
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 can tomato sauce (15 oz I think?)
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (This is the almost vegan part. My Worcestershire has anchovies in it, but you can buy a vegan kind!)
    1 tablespoon honey
    1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1/4 teaspoon celery seed
    1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/2 teaspoon oregano
    1/2 teaspoon paprika
    1 pinch ground black pepper
    hamburger buns


Heat oil in a deep, 10-inch skillet over medium-low heat. Cook the onion in the oil until translucent. Crumble the tempeh into the skillet; cook and stir until golden brown. Add the green pepper and garlic; cook another 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, honey, molasses, cayenne pepper, celery seed, cumin, salt, coriander, thyme, oregano, paprika, and black pepper; stir. Simmer another 10 to 15 minutes. Spoon hot onto hamburger buns to serve.
