Paleo Sloppy Joes

Paleo Sloppy Joes Paleo Sloppy Joes

This is not a far off twist of your standard sloppy joes sandwich. Most sloppy joes are served on a hamburger buns, with this recipe you can serve it without paleo bread instead with a side salad or vegetables cooked the way of your preference. There are tons of paleo bread recipes that you can use to add a bit more substance to this meal. Personally the plantain paleo bread is my favourite. The plantain flavour is not over powering, it adds a delicious boost of flavour. The sloppy joes mix can be spread through the middle and slightly folded like a taco. Feel free to look into the other paleo bread recipes that I have here on this site. When it comes to the binding agent in this recipe you can use one of the three I listed below along with a link to homemade paleo diet friendly recipes.
