Sweet Potato, Apple, and Beef Skillet

This is something I literally threw together on a whim. Probably why we have the odd pairing of beef and apples in this recipe… Oh, well. It was tasty so it’s getting posted! 🙂

Sweet Potato, Apple, and Beef Skillet

Ingredients:

1 tbsp avocado oil

1 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed

1 lb organic, grass-fed ground beef

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp rosemary

1 tsp thyme

1/4 tsp chili powder

salt and pepper

1 apple, peeled and diced

Garnish: Shredded cheese and parsley

Directions:

Heat oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add in the onions and garlic and sauté until the onions begin to caramelize. Add in the sweet potatoes and cook for another 8 minutes. Add in the meat and seasonings and cook until the meat is completely brown. Make sure to break up the chucks of meat as it cooks! Afterwards, mix in your apple pieces and cook for another 5 minutes. If desired, top with shredded cheese and parsley before serving.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (Paleo)

In honor of Father’s Day, I have a recipe my dad asks me to make weekly: Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.

When I can, I try to prep my meals and snacks on Sunday. Unfortunately, this hummus does not often make it to Monday as my dad tends to eat the whole thing by Sunday night.

No exaggeration, I now divide the dip into 2 containers and stow one in the back of the fridge so he won’t see it. Shhhhhh! 

Now, you can make it traditional by using white beans, but I prefer making it with an artichoke base instead (the hummus tastes the same either way!)
