Recipe: Sloppy Joes My Way(veggie loaded)
Recently I came up with this healthy version that incorporates lots of veggies and healthier seasoning options.
1 pound 93% lean ground beef( you can substitute veggie crumbles or ground turkey if you choose)
4 ounces chopped Baby Bella mushrooms
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 can of diced or chopped green chiles
1 can of Hunt's Fire Roasted Diced tomatoes
1 small can of Contadina Italian Tomato Paste
1 cup vegetable broth or stock
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
Brown ground beef in a skillet and then add garlic, onion, and mushrooms and cook on medium until onions are fragrant and soft. Add spices and cook for a couple of minutes, mixing to incorporate the flavors. Next add the tomatoes, tomato paste, chiles, and vegetable broth - mixing well. Allow to simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the sauce gets thicker.
Serving Suggestion: Serve on toasted whole grain bun or warm whole grain corn tortilla. Optionally top with low-fat cheese or a dollop fat free, plain Greek yogurt
