AIP Lamb Hash with Carrot and Celery Root
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.
