Sloppy Joe:

  • 1.5 lb organic ground beef
  • 1 cup onion diced
  • 1 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1 1/4 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut nectar
  • 1/4 tsp mustard powder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Fingerling Home Fries:

  • 1 cup yukon gold potato cut in wedges
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic
  • Sprig of fresh thyme
  • Pinch dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp avocado oil

Brussels Sprouts Petals

  • 1/2 lb Brussels sprout petals
  • 1/2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Toss the wedge-cut potatoes in the spices and avocado oil.

  3. Spread potatoes on a baking sheet and place in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

  4. While potatoes are cooking, add the meat to a large skillet on medium heat.
  5. Once the meat is browned, add the remaining ingredients for the sloppy joe and stir.

  6. Reduce heat on sloppy joe to low and allow to simmer down while potatoes continue to cook in the oven.
  7. In a separate medium skillet on medium heat, add the Brussels sprout petals, avocado oil, chili flakes, and salt and pepper. Stir them so all of the petals are coated. Allow to cook until petals are softened.
  8. Remove potatoes from the oven and serve everything together!
