This AIP Lamb Hash with Carrot and Celery Root is a breakfast yummy enough to lure you out from under the covers. 

When it comes to the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), hash becomes both staple and savior. A big batch can fill in the gaps for multiple breakfasts, as well as lunches and snacks. Once you’ve got the technique down, there are endless combos of protein, vegetables, and seasonings to play with. This particular combination is my absolute favorite.

It’s also a perfect way to make use of this AIP Lamb Sausage. Just brown up a pound, and toss some diced carrot and celery root into the skillet. Add a shake or two of turmeric and cinnamon for both flavor and health benefits. Finally, a dash of maple syrup brings the savory elements to life while awakening the natural sweetness of the carrots and celery root.

Alternately, if you want to make this without having to prepare the lamb sausage, you can use plain ground lamb. Simply season with salt and pepper, then add a bit of minced garlic, shallot, or onion to the pan when browning your meat.


Thyroid-healthy Highlights:

  • In addition to selenium, zinc, and iron, a 4 oz. portion of ground lamb provides 91% RDI of the essential amino acid Tyrosine, which the thyroid gland combines with iodine to make thyroid hormone.
  • Turmeric has multiple health benefits for those of us with thyroid disease. It can help protect and heal the intestinal barrier (leaky gut), and reduce inflammation throughout the body, in joints, muscle tissue, and even from GI conditions like Crohn’s, IBS, and ulcerative colitis.
  • Did you know cinnamon ranks #1 among spices for its antioxidants, phenolic compounds, and flavonoids? Those substances provide anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting support.
  • Although it’s best to avoid sugar on a thyroid-friendly diet, maple syrup is one of the most nutritious alternatives when sweetener is called for. It contains up to 24 different phenolic compounds (antioxidants) which can reduce the free radical damage that leads to inflammation and chronic disease.

Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Paleo, AIP


  • 1 ground lamb or AIP lamb sausage (see notes)
  • 1 medium celery root, peeled and diced small
  • 1 lb. carrots, peeled and diced small
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, or more to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Freshly ground black pepper (omit for strict AIP, see notes)
  • fresh chopped parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the lamb (or lamb sausage) until crisp in spots, 7-10 minutes. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon and set aside, leaving about 2 tablespoons of rendered lamb fat in the pan. Discard remaining fat or save for other uses.
  2. Add diced celery root, carrots, and sea salt to skillet, and cook 5 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Add cinnamon, turmeric, and maple syrup, and cook, stirring, 5 minutes more or until well-browned.
  3. Return lamb to skillet, cook 1 more minute. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.


  • I recommend using the recipe for AIP lamb sausage from this site, but feel free to substitute plain ground lamb, adding a bit of seasoning and some minced garlic, shallot, and/or onion to the skillet when browning your meat.
  • While pepper is not AIP-friendly during the elimination phase of the diet, I added it as an optional ingredient for those who have successfully reintroduced it because it significantly increases the bioavailability of turmeric.
