Healthy Dinner on a Budget: Sloppy Janes
Sloppy Janes are a healthier version of the typical Sloppy Joe. It is a quick, easy, and delicious recipe everyone in the family will love. This recipe also packs in vegetables for even more nutrition! I serve them on a whole grain bun and with a side of sweet potato fries and salad...yum!
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 ground turkey breast
1 can (15 ounces) no-salt-added tomato sauce
1/2 cup chopped pitted dates (about 5 dates)
4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
5 teaspoons yellow mustard
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.
