Clean Eating Sloppy Joes

Clean Eating Sloppy Joes

Who does not think of summer in the winter time!!  Me Today in Pa we are having record lows in the temperatures for this time of the year.  The kids are not going outside so we are inside, this makes me think of summer time picnics and also sloppy jooes come to my mind.  I found this recipe in the Tosca Reno book that was just released and for sure this will be going on my next meal plan.
Clean Eating Sloppy Joes

1 15oz. can of tomato sauce
2 Tablespoons of tomato paste
1 Tablespoon of Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon of Molasses
1 Tablespoon of apple Cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon of hot sauce
1 Tablespoon of olive oil
1 small onion chopped
2 celery ribs finely chopped
1 green bell pepper finely chopped
1 cup of shredded carrots
1.25 lbs of ground turkey
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
I like to use Ezekiel bread for my bun, It's really hard to find a clean whole wheat bun, so I just stick with what I know is clean, or put in a bed of leaf lettuce.
 Directions- in a small bowl, whisk together the tomato sauce, tomato paste, mustard, molasses, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a very large skillet over medium heat, add onion, celery, green peppers, and carrots until soft and starting to brown around 10 minutes.  Push vegetables to the side.  Next add turkey and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon until no longer pink. Add cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.  Add the reserved tomato sauce mixture and stir to combine.  Cover and simmer for 3 minutes.  Scoop onto bread or serve open faced without a bun.
