When was the last time you had a sloppy joe?

I think mine was maybe middle school??… in the school cafeteria no less (cringe)!? I made them for dinner recently and here we are on this recipe page because the were absolutely delicious!

Not only were they tastier than I remember, but also ridiculously easy to make (a one pot, easy clean-up situation). I snuck a few extra veggies in to make them Walk On The Healthy Side approved.

Give this recipe a go and shoot me a message on Instagram to tell me if you’ll be adding it to your dinner rotation.



  • 3/4 yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, finely diced
  • 1/3 cup organic ketchup (I used Sir Kensington)
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 lb grass-fed ground beef
  • 1 cup mushrooms, finely diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 1 6-oz can tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 4 buns (I used Happy Camper’s Gluten-Free Buns)


① In a large sauce pan, sauté ground beef for about 3-5 minutes, breaking it up as it cooks. Add in veggies and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. 

② Add remaining ingredients and cover with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally. 

③ Once done, toast the buns and add sloppy joe mixture inside each bun. Serve with veggies or green salad for a satisfying healthy meal.
