Sometimes I buy things that I'm too lazy to use right away. About the time when my sweet potatoes had sprouted medium sized trees, I decided it was time to make something with them. Since I'm not a fan of baked sweet potatoes (especially when copious amounts of butter and sugar are not an option), I thanked sweet baby Jesus for the internet and paleo recipe blogs in general. After some searching through the internetz, I found this recipe for sweet potato casserole and it was super delish. Here's what I used:
2 small sweet potatoes
1 package grass-fed ground beef
3 T coconut oil
1/2 yellow onion
1/2 c coconut milk (unsweetened, from the can)
1/4 t sage
Salt, pepper, garlic & onion powder to taste
First I peeled the sweet potatoes and shredded them in a food processor with the attachment to make hash browns in and preheated the oven to 350 degrees. I greased a glass dish with coconut oil and poured the sweet potato into the bottom of it. Then I browned the ground beef, onion and 2 T coconut oil over medium high heat and layered it over the sweet potato hash. After mixing the rest of the ingredients together and pouring them on top of the meat, I baked the concoction uncovered for about 45 minutes and pretty soon it smelled amazing.
I added sriracha (duh) and nommed all night long. Super easy, super delicious. Win.
I'm starting to run out of ideas for meals lately (probably due to the lazy factor) so please share any and all of your favorite paleo recipes in the comments! I have two weeks to go. Keep me motivated, friends.
