Shepherd’s pie {GAPS}

Posted in GAPS friendly, main dish tagged , , , , , , , , , at 9:17 pm by riahjoy

Shepherd’s pie is something that the whole family loves and has enjoyed many different ways; we’ve never done the same recipe twice!

The basic idea is to brown some ground meat in meat stock. Mix in with a vegetable (green beans, peas, zucchini, broccoli, etc.,.) in a casserole dish. Smooth some faux-tatoes on top. Add a little ghee and cook!

Below are some pictures of our past variations:

Green Bean Casserole {GAPS}

Posted in side tagged , , , at 3:59 pm by riahjoy

I was scared that when we entered GAPS I would have to give up some favorites. Instead I’m just finding new ways to make my favorites even better!

Green bean casserole

I love green bean casserole. I had made a simple version with “cream of cauliflower” soup (cauliflower florets cooked in crock pot or boiled in pan of stock and then blended with a hand blender) and beans, but I really missed the crunchy topping. So when I made the hash browns I knew that was just what I needed to top it off!

The meal was comprised of spaghetti squash and tomato meat sauce cooked in crockpots all day, boiled broccoli, and green beans. Everyone was quite pleased with the meal.
