Monday lunches are a real treat for Green Mountain participants when these special Sloppy Joes are served. Hearty and healthy, it gives plenty of energy to get through an active day. By substituting tempeh for the ground meat, it becomes an easy and tasty vegetarian alternative.
Makes 2 wraps (4 servings)
3/4 cup chili sauce
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 pound ground turkey or lean beef
2 cups cooked rice
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup regular or light sour cream
2 tortilla wraps
In small bowl, combine chili sauce, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, and vinegar, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper and set aside.
In large skillet, cook onions in olive oil over medium heat about 5 minutes or until tender. Transfer onions to the chili sauce mixture and stir to combine.
Return skillet to stove. Add ground turkey or beef, and cook over medium heat about 6 minutes or until meat is no longer pink. Add chili mixture and simmer on low heat about 5 minutes. Stir in rice and green onions and heat through.
Divide the sour cream between the tortillas and spread evenly over each tortilla, leaving at least a 1 inch border around the edge. Divide the meat mixture between the tortillas and wrap. Cut each wrap in half on the diagonal. Serves 4 (one serving is half of a tortilla).
*Note: For a vegetarian version, add 3/4 pound crumbled tempeh instead of meat to the chili mixture; cook as above.
