1 medium onion, diced 

1 red bell pepper, diced 

1 1/2 pounds vegetarian crumbles, such as MorningStar 

1 tablespoon garlic powder, plus for seasoning

2 tablespoons yellow mustard 

2 tablespoons soy sauce 

2 tablespoons brown sugar 

1 cup ketchup 

6 hamburger buns, warmed 


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and red peppers, and cook until softened and the onions are starting to brown, about 5 minutes.

Add 1 cup water; cook 5 minutes more.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1/2 tablespoon seasoning salt and the mustard, soy sauce, brown sugar and ketchup. Stir this into the veggie crumble mixture. Serve on the warmed hamburger buns.
