Adding pinto beans into this sloppy joe recipe will boost the fiber content of this recipe. Pinto beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, as most beans. The high fiber content in Pinto beans can prevent blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, which makes Pinto beans a great choice for people with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia.
Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup finely chopped white onion
  • 1 lb ground Turkey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ¾ teaspoon turmeric
  • ¼- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional) depending on your spice meter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup grated carrot
  • 1 - 15 oz can low sodium crushed tomatoes
  • 2-3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar (add 2T taste it and if you like add 1T)
  • 1 cup pinto beans
  • 6-(2 oz whole wheat buns or 12 whole wheat slider buns)
  • Romaine lettuce leafs instead of whole wheat buns (optional)
  • Directions:
  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion sauté for a few minutes add ground turkey, brown the meat for about 8 minutes until turkey is browned, stirring occasionally to crumble the turkey.
  2. Add carrots, garlic powder, oregano, cayenne pepper (optional) salt, black pepper & turmeric cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in tomatoes & apple cider vinegar and stir well; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium, cook for about 10 minutes until the sauce is thickened and carrots are tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add beans and mash with a fork, back of a slotted spoon or use a potato masher. Add mashed beans and remaining beans to pan; cook for 1 minute or until thoroughly heated.
  4. Serve over a whole wheat hamburger bun or a romaine lettuce leaf and roll into a wrap. Serve with sliced red onions and or lettuce and sliced tomatoes.
Romaine lettuce leaves make this a delicious lighter bread-free option.
You can reduce the amount of turkey in half to make this almost meatless which would then serve closer to 4 portions.
