Nature's Rancher

Ground Turkey Sloopy Janes

 

Serves 4

    A healthier take on typical Sloppy Joes, this tangy recipe packs in the veggies and Nature's Rancher ground turkey. Serve on sprouted whole grain buns, brown rice or whole grain pasta with a large green salad on the side.

Ingredients:

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons no-salt-added tomato paste
  • 1 cup grated carrots (from 1 large carrot)
  • 3/4 pound Nature's Rancher ground turkey
  • 1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped pitted dates (about 5 dates)
  • 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 5 teaspoons yellow mustard

Directions:

    Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and pepper and cook until starting to stick and lightly brown, stirring frequently, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, carrots and 2 tablespoons water and cook 2 minutes longer or until carrots are tender, stirring occasionally and scraping any browned bits from the surface of the pan. Add turkey and cook 3 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink, stirring to break it up as it cooks. Stir in tomato sauce, dates, vinegar, mustard and 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 minutes to blend flavors.
