Turkey Sloppy Joes

For the past few months, I’ve been making an effort to eat more fruits and veggies. I’ve been drinking smoothies for breakfast almost every morning, and I’ve been taking some sort of fruit or vegetable to work everyday for my afternoon snack. But finding ways to add veggies into our dinners has still been a bit of a struggle for me.

That’s why I was thrilled when I came across this recipe on Finding Joy in My Kitchen. Look at all these added vegetables! And, to make this an even better meal, all the extra veggies stretched this meal to make about 6 sandwiches! With saving money and adding healthy ingredients at the same time, you can’t go wrong in my book.

Turkey Sloppy Joes
1 lb. ground turkey
1 green bell pepper, finely diced
3 carrots, finely diced
1 celery stalk, finely diced
1/2 cup onion, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1 tbsp. prepared mustard
2 tbsp. vinegar
2 tbsp. brown sugar

Brown the ground turkey, seasoning with salt and pepper if desired. Once cooked, drain the turkey and add it to your crockpot. Top with bell pepper, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic, stirring to combine.

Add ketchup, mustard, vinegar, and brown sugar. Stir to mix well.

Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 hours. Enjoy!

    These look wonderful! I usually make my sloppy joes with ground turkey (browned) and then add a can of low fat chicken gumbo soup, a squirt of ketchup, a squirt of mustard. Super fast and easy! Not as many veggies, but still not too “bad” – and I love anything QUICK! 🙂
