Sloppy Joes

  • 1 large red pepper, diced finely
  • 1 white onion, diced finely
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 6 ounce can tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 cup water, plus more if needed

Sweet Potatoes

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted


  • First, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Slice sweet potatoes about 1/4 inch thick and arrange on a large baking sheet.
  • Next, brush melted coconut oil over both sides of each sweet potato round and bake for 30 minutes, flipping after 20 minutes. Then, remove from heat.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, add red pepper, onion and olive oil.  Cook over low medium heat for about 7 to 8 minutes or until onions become soft.
  • Next, add in ground beef and cook on medium until brown and crumbly.
  • Discard excess fat from pan.  Then, add in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and let simmer for at least 15 to 20 minutes, adding more water if mixture becomes too dry.
  • Finally, assemble: add sloppy joe meat to a bowl or plate and top with sweet potatoes.
