Easy-Healthier Sloppy Joes! Yum!!

Here is a healthier version of a absolutely-deliciously-greasy classic. I even tried it out on my hubby and he didn't even notice the difference from our normal greasy recipe. He actually said it tasted BETTER!

Serves 6
Prep/Cook time: 30
1 1/2 Ib ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup bell pepper
1/4 cup celery
1 carrot shredded
2 tsp minced garlic

Drain. Add:
1 cup ketchup
1/4-1/3 cup water (depending on how "sloppy" you want!")
1/2 tbls mustard
1/2 tbls brown sugar
2 tsp chili powder
dash of garlic salt and pepper

Reduce heat to low and simmer for up to 30 minutes.

Serve on whole wheat hamburger buns topped with shredded cabbage.

I also enjoy it plain over shredded cabbage... sloppy salad? It tastes just like you have the bun, and cabbage- unlike lettuce, doesn't wilt up with the heated meat on top.
