Zuchinni Sloppy Joes

Nope, this is not a vegetarian recipe. This is just another way to infuse some veggies in our meal. Inspired by a recipe on Epicurious, I decided to use up the leftover beef in our fridge rather than freeze it.

Here’s what you’ll need –

  • 1/2 lb ground beef (I use organic, but I’m not going to pull a Gwen Paltrow and say “preferably organic”)
  • 3 oz tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (about one small)
  • 1 medium zuchinni chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano

Brown your beef for a few minutes, then throw in the onions and zuchinni. Saute for a few more minutes. Add tomato paste, water, garlic and spices. Simmer for a few minutes (stir occassionally so the meat doesn’t stick!). Serve on a bun with a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.

For the side I fancied up some leftover green beans by tossing them in some olive oil, garlic and lemon juice over medium heat for a few minutes.
