Sloppy Joes are a childhood staple. Or, if you were raised by hippies like I was, tempeh Sloppy Joes are a traumatizing memory. They are terrible, don’t ever make them. (Sorry vegan friends. Sometimes it's better to leave a good thing alone. Good news is, real ground meat Sloppy Joes are awesome and super easy to make on a busy weeknight. Enjoy this healthier version of what you ate as a kid!
1 Package Sloppy Joe dried mix
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1lb ground, turkey, chicken, or beef
4 rolls (we like our philly bread sweet potato buns)
1 Green bell pepper diced (optional)
1 yellow onion
1 clove garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
Sauté onion, garlic, and optional green bell peppers until translucent (about 5 minutes).
Add ground meat and cook completely (it should be slightly browned).
