Clean Eating Magazine: Ratatouille Sloppy Joe’s

I had decided it was time for meat tonight since I had been eying a recipe from the November/December issue of Clean Eating. It was so easy to make (I did it while Nathan was watching Elmo), it was extremely filling and very healthy. I let David have the bun and I ate it bunless. Clean eating says one sandwich is 232 Calories, 5 g of Sat Fat, 30 Carbs, etc…

Here is the recipe:


-1 tsp olive oil

-1 lb extra lean ground bison (I used extra lean ground beef)

-3 cloves garlic, minced

-1 med onion, diced

-2 tsp chili powder (didn’t use)

-1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

-¾ tsp mustard powder

-1 sweet red pepper, diced

-1 medium zucchini, diced

-1 small eggplant (3/4 lb), diced

-1 ½ cups marinara sauce

-1 tbsp raw honey (*secret ingredient!)

-salt and pepper to taste

– 8 whole grain buns, toasted


1.     Heat large nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat and add oil, beef, garlic and onion for 5-8 minutes. Break up with a  spoon and cook until there isn’t any liquid remaining and beef if browned. Add chili powder, cayenne pepper and mustard powder, still well for 1 more minute. Pour mixtures into a bowl and set aside.

2.     Return pan to heat and add diced vegetables (I added a little bit more oil) for 3-4 minutes. Add beef mixture back to pan, stir well and cook for 10-12 minutes or until vegetables are tender and cooked throughout.

3.     Add marinara sauce, 2 tbsp water and honey to man, stirring until mixture is coated. Cook until hot and bubbly, season with salt and pepper and serve on your bread of choice.
