Sloppy joe is an American classic made with ground beef, a sweet tomato/ketchup-based sauce, and usually served between two hamburger buns. It’s tasty, but not exactly healthy.

This sloppy joe is made without the bun, and without a sauce filled with refined sugar. Pair it with vegetables and store it in a glass meal prep container for an easy and flavorful meal that you can prep over the weekend to eat for lunch throughout the week!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large red pepper, diced finely

  • 1 white onion, diced finely

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 pounds ground beef

  • 6 ounce can tomato paste

  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos

  •  1 tsp paprika

  • 1 tsp ground pepper

  • 1 cup water, plus more if needed

  • 2 large sweet potatoes

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted

Instructions:

 

1.First, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Slice sweet potatoes about 1/4 inch thick and arrange on a large baking sheet.

2.Next, brush melted coconut oil over both sides of each sweet potato round and bake for 30 minutes, flipping after 20 minutes. Then, remove from heat.

3.Meanwhile, in a large skillet, add red pepper, onion and olive oil.  Cook over low medium heat for about 7 to 8 minutes or until onions become soft.

4. Next, add in ground beef and cook on medium until brown and crumbly.

5. Discard excess fat from pan.  Then, add in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat and let simmer for at least 15 to 20 minutes, adding more water if mixture becomes too dry.

6. Finally, assemble: add sloppy joe meat to a bowl or plate and top with sweet potatoes.
