Paleo Casserole

July 4, 2011  |  Food  |  Share

I have been pretty busy lately with stuff for the blog, even though you haven’t seen any of it yet. I have come up with a few more Tshirt designs that will be uploaded to my shop soon. I have also filmed my first episode of Family Living Simple Cooking Show. I might have to come up with a different name, but it is filmed and I am editing it now. The  sound quality is pretty bad, but I am looking into better options. So look out for more cooking episodes to come. Also, I have been working on a children’s book. Not going to divulge to much, but it is Paleo based and is a coloring book. I might have found an illustrator, but the illustrations will take awhile.

So, be on the lookout for more to come from this blog soon.

Now for the recipe.

Paleo Casserole

2 pounds of ground meat
2 Tablespoons of tomato paste
2 Zucchinis
1 Sweet Potato
2 Carrots
3 cloves Garlic
Handful of Chopped Mushrooms
3 Eggs
Salt n Pepper

Turn on your oven to 400•. Slice your zucchini on a mandolin into thin noodles and set aside. Cook our meat on your stove top. While the meat is cooking cut up your carrots on the mandolin and grate you sweet potato with a cheese grater. I find sweet potatoes to hard to slice on my mandolin. When the meat is almost cooked add the tomato paste, onions, garlic and the mushroom. Cook for a few minutes more. Once the meat is cooked add it to a large bowl and add in the zucchini, sweet potato and carrots. Whisk the three eggs and add those to the bowl along with the spices. Mix everything together and add to an 9″x13″ dish, cover with foil and toss in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil and cook another 20 minutes and you are all done. Enjoy.

  1. I have the same mandolin and use it just about everyday…love that thing now that I’m not scared of cutting my fingers off. :-) Sounds like you have some really cool stuff coming up. Wishing you lots of success with all of it! And thanks for sharing your recipe.

  2. Oh I love casseroles! I’ll have to try it!

  3. I sort of made this tonight and I loved it! I did not make it paleo though since we don’t eat paleo. I added cheese and heavy cream. Even still, it was great to have a grain free casserole. I posted a photo and what I did on my blog, linking back to yours!

  4. This looks wonderful!!! Can’t wait to give this a try!!!

  5. I’ve made this recipes about 5 times now, and we love it. Today I substituted shredded cabbage for the zucchini and it was awesome. Thanks for the recipe!

    The New site looks good.

  6. I have a question. I’m trying to cook for a friend and she’s Paleo AND allergic to eggs. Can I substitute ground flax and a little water to use as a binder instead of the eggs?

    This looks so good that I’m going to make this for myself as written, too.

    • I think you could get away with not using any eggs. I don’t think its necessary to add the flax either. The topping just wont stick together as well, but once you dish it up you won’t even notice. Let me know how it goes.

  7. This looks delicious, but I’m trying to avoid nightshade. Any ideas on what I could substitute for the tomato paste or if it would turn out OK if I leave it out? Thanks so much!!

    • We are actually avoiding nightshades right now too. I am sure it would be fine without since its only two tablespoons. But if you wanted to make a pesto that would probably be pretty tasty. I just use oil, macadamia nuts and either cilantro or basil. Hmmm That sounds really good.

      • Sounds absolutely fantastic! Thank you for the great idea! May sub that all over the place, as I’m missing my Italian style recipes (which all have tomato sauce, but I think would be delish with pesto)! Thanks so much!

  8. This was a huge hit with the family. Plenty of leftovers for lunch. Thank you

  9. going to try this tonight. A tip for those who are intimidated using a mandolin, I bought a spiralizer that turns my zucchini and sweet potatoes into spaghetti noodles in seconds.

  10. How many diets eat like this, right.
