Low Sodium Sloppy Joes Recipe

This Low Sodium Sloppy Joes recipe is a delicious and fresh take on classic sloppy joes- without all the salt! Loaded with fresh veggies, herbs, and spices, these delicious ground beef sandwiches are much healthier and tastier than the canned mix. This is one low sodium dinner recipe the whole family will love!

These low sodium Sloppy Joes are THE best easy weeknight meal, we had them a few nights in a row and even after a few days they still got a 10/10!  I used to have Sloppy Joes all the time growing up, but never bothered to make them much as an adult. The cans of “sauce” were loaded with preservatives and ingredients I couldn’t pronounce, so I had to make a change!

These Sloppy Joes are just as simple to make as using canned sauce… seriously!  All you have to do is add in a few vegetables as you brown the meat, and add a few pantry staple spices and tomatoes to make a delicious sauce. Everything is simple and it seriously takes SO good.

These Low Sodium Sloppy Joes Are:

  • Bright
  • Tangy
  • Loaded with Vegetables
  • Flavorful
  • Fall-Apart Delicious
  • Messy as all Heck
  • An Easy Weeknight Meal Ready in Under 30 Minutes!

One Pot Homemade Sloppy Joes For the Win!

This sloppy joes without salt recipe is the perfect one-pot lunch or dinner!  I love a good One Pot Meal, especially during these fall months when I don’t want a lot of burners going at once.

The stove does all the work for you, so you can focus on other kitchen prep while the food cooks. One Pot meals are awesome for breakfast, lunch, or dinner – check out my link here to see other healthy one pot meals that are ready in no time!

How Do I Make Sloppy Joes From Scratch?

  2. Add the crushed tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, and cover. Sauté on low what for 15 minutes until peppers are soft.
  3. Bring water to a boil. In a separate bowl, add the TVP, chili powder, onion powder, and cumin. Add 1 cup of boiling water to the TVP and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the TVP to the tomato mixture and stir well to combine. Taste, and add salt and pepper if needed.
  5. Toast buns, and add a generous scoop of sloppy joe mixture to the bins. Top with fresh chopped onion and enjoy!
