EwE - Mushroom Sloppy Joes

We LOVE sloppy joes!   But these are so much better than those you make with a canned sauce.  And they are easy to prepare and quick.  Not to mention they only have good ingredients in them and not all the chemicals and preservatives the canned ones have.  

You can access Ellie's recipe in her Weeknight Wonders book

Or, this is how I made them.  We wanted some meat in ours so I added ground turkey.  So good I can hardly wait to eat the leftoverss tonight!

Brown one lb of ground turkey.  Add one onion chopped and one bell pepper chopped.  Cook these for a few minutes until soft before adding to turkey.  Add two cloves of garlic, one T. Apple cider vinegar, one T. Chili powder, two T. Sugar, one can drained pinto beans, one cup chopped mushrooms, one 15 oz. tomato sauce, one T. Tomato paste.   Simmer for fifteen minutes,  enjoy!

Hi Peggy, I made these as per the recipe (no meat!), and was surprised by how tasty they were. Opened my eyes to something I would never have chosen alone.

Okay, I'm catching up a bit posting some old recipes from EwE that I missed and going around commenting on the ones I am posting because I am late to the date. Sigh. Anyway, your sloppy joes look really good with the ground turkey, very nice photo! I loved them just as she wrote it so I am thinking this is a success here for me. Sometimes I just like to have a meatless meal. I thought this was a great pick, thanks for helping me find a new favorite. :-)
