Feta sloppy joes

Low Sodium

This sloppy joe uses lean ground beef, which is lower in fat but protein-packed! Eating protein helps keep you feeling fuller for longer and can help to prevent mindlessly munching between meals.

1 pound lean (93% lean) ground beef
1 small red onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 15-ounce can no-salt-added tomato sauce
1 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
6 whole-grain hamburger buns
6 leaves romaine lettuce
6 tablespoons feta cheese crumbles

1. Heat a medium skillet to medium-high heat. Add ground beef, onion and garlic. Stir. Cook, breaking the beef up with a wooden spoon or heat-safe spatula, until beef has browned (about 6 to 8 minutes).
2. Add tomato sauce and Italian seasoning. Stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 7 to 9 minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly.
3. Place a lettuce leaf on the bottom half of each bun. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon feta cheese and cover with sloppy joe mixture. Add the tops of the buns and enjoy!
