|Dinner: Turkey sloppy joes (with diced apple, pureed butternut squash, and shredded zucchini) on ciabatta rolls, with steamed vegetables and fresh pineapple. This meal came right out of the freezer, and I'd made a double batch of sloppy joes a while back and froze a bag of it. Tonight I stirred in shredded zucchini and it was ready to go. Usually I made whole wheat rolls to go with this, but we were out all day, so there wasn't time.|
Turkey sloppy joes:
1 diced apple
1 lb. lean turkey
1/2 small green pepper, diced (I usually omit this)
1 c tomato sauce
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tsbp white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
2 tsp sugar
1/2 cup pureed orange vegetable- (butternut squash, pumpkin, sweet potato, or carrot all work well).
Saute meat, onions, apple, and pepper 8 mins, or till brown. Drain. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well and break up meat w/wooden spoon. Simmer on med-low, uncovered, 10 mins, stir occasionally.
Serves 4-6 people, serve over buns, eng. muffins, etc.
