One of my husband’s favorite comfort foods is a yummy dish his mom makes. It’s a combination of potatoes, carrots, and ground beef cooked together on the stove. I wanted to remake this AIP (auto-immune protocol), and it tuned out pretty tasty. It also has an easy remake for breakfast, if you’re blessed with leftovers. (This morning my 6-year-old said “it tastes like pancakes,” but that may be going a bit too far!)
4 large sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch slices
1 lb. ground pork (you can throw it in frozen)
1/2 large onion, cut into chunks
a fist-full of carrots, cut into bite size
Salt to taste
1.) Boil water in a medium-sized pot. Put sweet potatoes in (water should barely cover potatoes).
2.) Add hunk of meat, onion, and carrots. Boil until meat is cooked through and veggies are tender.
3.) Smash with potato masher. It won’t be smooth – more of a rugged dish.
4.) Serve with coconut or olive oil on top. Have cheese and toast for non-AIP family members. Add the love and enjoy!
Stir in 1tsp. each of thyme, rosemary, salt, and nutmeg (or cinnamon, if nutmeg bothers you) for sausage flavor. Serve with olive oil and optional coconut milk
