You may be someone who plans your menu for the week (how I envy your organizational skills!) or that other type of person who decides what’s for dinner at 5pm, when the troops are getting restless. Of course, I don’t personally know someone who could possibly be that disorganized (ahem). Whichever category you fall into, this easy and healthy turkey sloppy Joe recipe will appeal to you.
For those fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants types, this recipe uses ingredients that you likely stock in your fridge and pantry. If you have a decent supply of dried spices, some kind of ground meat (preferably lean), a couple of carrots and a bit of tomato and barbecue sauce, then you can pull this off with your eyes closed.
While traditional sloppy Joes are served on hamburger buns, there’s not reason why you couldn’t serve the mixture over rice or even pasta. My motto for weekday meals…use what you have. It will always turn out if you have a decently stocked pantry and a somewhat forgiving family.
While carrots aren’t typically part of sloppy Joes, why not use the opportunity to slip in some veggies? The veggies are diced finely and cooked until softened so that they don’t affect the texture of the sloppy Joes.
