Cook the sweet potatoes by poking holes all over it with a fork, then cook in the microwave for 7 to 10 minutes, until tender.

Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meat and seasoned salt, and cook, breaking the turkey up into small pieces. Add the veggies. Reduce heat to medium and add the red wine vinegar, coconut aminos, and fish sauce. Cook for 4 or 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, and water to the skillet and stir to combine. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until the carrots are tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.

To serve, cut sweet potatoes, sprinkle with  pinch of salt, and top with sloppy joe mix and green onions.

Notes: This was hearty and delicious. The flavors went well together, and it really does taste like sloppy joes!
