Sunday Supper #1

In an attempt to dust off my cook books and break out of our rotation of the same 5 dinners over and over, I am tasking myself to post a tried and true recipe each week. By no means am I a gourmet cook so these should all be relatively easy to make. I'm simply hoping that by feeling obligated to post a new recipe, I'll feel more motivated to cook a larger variety of things.

For this first week, I am going to share the recipe of the first meal I ever made for Ben. One would think that making sloppy joes is not exactly the way to win over a man's heart, but he really loved them.

Let me know if you try out the recipe.

Guten Appetite!

Turkey Vegetable Sloppy Joes

1 lb ground turkey
1 c. chopped onion
1 garlic clove, minced
½ c. chopped green bell pepper
1 (14 ½ oz) can diced tomatoes
¼ c. tomato paste
1 t. chili powder
¾ t. ground cumin
½ t. salt
½ t. black pepper
4 kaiser rolls, split
1 c. (4 oz) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese

Cook turkey, onion, and garlic in a large nonstick skillet over high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Stir in bell pepper and next 7 ingredients (bell pepper through black pepper). Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Spoon ½ cup turkey mixture onto each roll half; top each with 2 tablespoons cheese.
