Whole30 Sloppy Joe Bowls

1 lb ground beef
½ cup chopped onion
¾ cup chopped green pepper
1 8oz can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1½ tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
½ teaspoon minced garlic
½ teaspoon dried parsley
½ teaspoon salt
5 medjool dates, pitted
⅔ cup water (reserved)
russet potatoes (one per person)

  1. Brown the ground beef in a large pan over medium/high heat and add the onion. Drain any excess grease
  2. Reduce the heat to medium and add the green pepper,apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, garlic, dried parsley, and salt. Mix well
  3. Meanwhile, in a small pot, bring ⅔ cup water to a boil and add the dates. Boil 30-60 seconds, just long enough to significantly soften the dates. Remove the dates from the pot (reserving the water for later)
  4. Place the dates into a food processor or blender, then add tomato sauce, and tomato paste. Blend well then add to the beef mixture
  5. Add 2 tablespoons of the reserved date water
  6. Wash and dry a russet potato. Poke the potato with a fork or knife a few times, then microwave for 5-7 minutes, until potato is soft inside
  7. Serve sloppy joe mixture on top of baked russet potato and garnish with green onions
