Turkey Lentil Sloppy Joes
These Turkey Lentil Sloppy Joes are actually telling a lie. Why is that? Because turkey sloppy joes don’t actually exist. Sloppy joes made with turkey are, technically, Sloppy Janes. Fortunately, these Sloppy-s are yummy enough you won’t about the terminology.
The hands on time for this dish is also very low. In about 10 minutes you will have this dish cooking and then it just sits on simmer while you chill, fix a side dish or whatever it is you like.
How to Make Turkey Lentil Sloppy Joes
First cook the turkey until no longer pink and remove to a plate.
Next cook the peppers, onion, garlic powder and tomato paste.
And it really is that simple. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and simmer. Done. Just-like-that! Perfect for a weeknight. Serve your turkey lentil sloppy joes on buns, sliders or in lettuce wraps. Top with yellow mustard, diced red onion and dill pickle chips.
Any leftovers will reheat well, or remix them into a taco salad, some nachos or blend with some eggs or farro for a hearty protein bowl.
