I came across the following pin the other day while looking on Pinterest.
Um, YU-UM! I looked in the fridge to see what I had on hand and looked over the recipe to see what types of substitutions I could make, and how I could incorporate more veggies. I ended up with a really great sloppy joe recipe that is really good for you!
