Easy Dinner For Kids : Veggie Loaded Sloppy Joe Minis (Grain Free)

Written by raghu




I am always on the hunt for easy dinner recipes for my kids especially ones full of vegetables. These Veggie Loaded sloppy joes have about half the sugar of regular sloppy joes and the sugar it does have added is in the ketchup and coconut sugar! This is a seriously healthy dinner recipe for your kids and your husbands. Actually the first time I tested this recipe my kids were asleep and my husband was ripping these sloppy joe bites out of my hand!! This is a really fairly simple recipe to make and if you get your kids in the kitchen to make it with you they will probably be even more excited to eat it. You can choose your own buns but I HIGHLY suggest trying out the gluten free/grain free braze bites which is authentic brazilian bread . They are soft and gooey and WONDERFUL and their mini size make them even more fun! Don’t forget to subscribe to our channel for more kid approved easy dinner recipes and hopefully get inspired to cook with your kids, the results are worth it! xoxo Katelyn

My husband has always had a love affair with sloppy joes. I actually had NEVER tried sloppy Joes before we got married and then in effort to be a good wife I tried to make them our first year of marriage. I could never enjoy them because they were so overly sweet, messy, and seemed like a waste of calories. I was so happy to come across Lauren’s Latest Veggie Loaded Sloppy Joes: http://www.laurenslatest.com/healthier-crockpot-sloppy-joes/
that included tons of veggies . I slightly adapted her recipe to fit our paleo efforts and used coconut sugar and less ketchup ( although not perfectly paleo). And then I put them on the gluten free bite size dream buns BRAZI BITES as seen on shark tank! I am kinda OBSESSED with these bites that are made with tapioca starch and cheese. They melt in your mouth and they are just so cute. My kids flipped. My husband flipped. and I now have a new fun healthy treat to bring to partys. This is the perfect kids food because they are exciting and oh so mini. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do and get your kids in the kitchen to make these, you are sure to have a bonding blast!
