Turkey and Mushroom Sloppy Joes and a Review

I recently won a giveaway over at the Crazy Cooking Couple. I typically don’t enter giveaways (though this win might change that!), but I was intrigued by the prize in this challenge. The Crazy Cooking Couple was giving away several varieties of Brad’s Raw Chips. The flavor I got was the Leafy Kale Vampire Killer. Basically, it was pieces of kale, that some process was done to them to get them crispy coated with a soy cheese substitute and garlic. They definitely weren’t the same as potato chips and I don’t know if they could satisfy my potato chip cravings, however, they definitely were yummy. I’d actually like to try some of the other variations of Brad’s Raw Chips. For example, there’s a sweet potato chip, a red bell pepper chip, and a sun dried tomato chip. I actually think one of those may be more suitable for craving a “chip” craving than pieces of greenery. However, it wasn’t until this moment that I have consciously eaten kale and it was good.

I received the kale chips last Tuesday and decided to serve them with my sloppy joe lunch.

Turkey and Mushroom Sloppy Joes

1 tbsp olive oil
12 oz ground turkey
16 oz sliced mushrooms
1 cup onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup tomato paste
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp molasses
1/4 tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp Sriacha sauce
4 hamburger buns


1. Heat a skillet over medium-heat. Add oil and swirl to coat. Add the turkey, cooking for 4 minutes, until brown. Stir to crumble.

2. While the meat cooks, place the mushrooms in a food processor. Pulse 10 times, or until finely chopped. Add the mushrooms, onion, and garlic to the pan with the turkey. Cook for 3 minutes, until the onion is tender. Add the tomato paste, red wine vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, molasses, and salt. Cook for 5 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender and the liquid has began to evaporate.

3. Stir in the ground black pepper and Sriacha. Spoon 1/4 of the meat mixture onto each bun.
