“Cheeseburger” Bowls (AIP/Paleo) are an allergy-friendly, fun main course that everyone can customize. Add whatever toppings suit you!
A question I often get is, “How do I make AIP meals work for my family?” Let me tell you, my family and I have been down this road. (See The Great Sweet Potato Mutiny of 2017.) Things came to a head when my husband expressed in a not-so-patient tone that the family never asked to go on some crazy can’t-eat-anything diet.
Ahem. Fair point.
One thing that has been successful for us is to have meals that are as customizable as possible. This recipe is an example of this. You start with a bowl of your favorite greens (bag salad is perfectly acceptable), add some “cheesy” ground beef, then go to town with the toppings!
Non-AIPers can add tomatoes, jalapeños, ketchup, mustard, and all manner of off-limits (for us) foods.
For those in the elimination phase of AIP, try sautéed mushrooms, sliced avocado, pickled onions, and AIP-friendly pickle slices. (I have a recipe for Refrigerator Pickles right here.)
But what about the “cheeseburger” part?
So glad you asked! Basically, you just brown the hamburger, then make a cheese sauce, using coconut milk, chicken or beef broth, white sweet potatoes, large flake nutritional yeast and seasonings. You’ll need either an immersion blender, or a workhorse blender like mine to purée the sauce.
I hope you and your family have fun with this recipe. As always, I am wishing you great love and deep healing!
