These clean eating sloppy joes will be a family favorite!
Preheat oven & pop potatoes in the oven to bake so they're finished by the time you're finished with the rest of the steps. (I try to do mine a bit ahead of time so they cool a bit before my small children eat them!)
Brown the ground turkey in a large pan over medium/high heat and then add the onion, cook for a few minutes or until onions start to become translucent. Drain any excess grease. (When using ground turkey there won't really be any excess grease to drain, so you'll only need to do this if you're using beef.)
Reduce the heat to medium and add the green pepper,apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, dried parsley, and salt.
While that’s cooking, in a small pot, bring ⅔ cup water to a boil and add the dates. Boil 30-60 seconds, just long enough to soften the dates. Remove the dates from the pot.
Place the dates into a food processor or blender, add tomato sauce and tomato paste. Blend well then add to the turkey mixture.
Serve sloppy joe mixture on top of baked potatoes. Garnish with green onions if you’d like!
