Turkey Sloppy Joes

Jan 11, 2014


2 TBSP coconut oil or butter

4 carrots, coarsely grated

1 medium onion, diced

1 garlic clove, minced

salt & pepper

4 TBSP tomato paste

1 lb ground turkey (dark meat)

28 ounces crushed tomatoes (I like POMI brand as they have no additives and no BPA)

1 TBSP apple cider vinegar

1 tsp Worcestershire (I like this brand available at whole foods near the ketchup. It does have molasses listed on the ingredients,

but 1 tsp only has 1 gram of sugar so I’m OKing it for the detox).

In a large skillet, heat oil or butter over medium heat. Add carrots and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally until softened (5 minutes). Season with salt & pepper. Add garlic and tomato paste and cook 1 minute. Add turkey, breaking up with a spoon and cooking until no longer pink (about 5 minutes). Add crushed tomatoes, vinegar & worcestershire. Cook, stirring occasionally until thickened about 15 minutes.

In the picture above I served the sloppy joes over Zenbelly’s plantain tostados which are amazing and paleo. But they aren’t detox approved so save those for when you finish your 21DSD.
