1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, packed without oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons lower-sodium Worcestershire sauce

1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, undrained

1. Combine 1 cup boiling water and sun-dried tomatoes in a small bowl; let stand 15 minutes. Drain.

2. While tomatoes hydrate, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Cook 6 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring frequently. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes, brown sugar, and next 7 ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring occasionally.

3. Stir meatless crumbles into vegetable mixture; cook over medium-high heat 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently.

4. Spoon about 1/2 cup vegetable mixture onto each bun bottom; cover with bun tops.
