Paleo Cheeseburger Casserole






Tonight I had to throw dinner together fairly quickly. Our son had a baseball game so we didn’t get home until passed dinner time. While the kids took their nightly bath, I threw together this yummy perfection. It was amazing and hit the spot perfect.

I could’ve gorged on some fast food, I wanted to make something for the fam that was still within our 30days to healthy living guidelines. I topped this casserole with my favorite cheese from Trader Joe’s, their Almond Mozzarella Cheese. It’s my absolute favorite vegan cheese and it melts just like dairy cheese! My kiddos can’t even tell the difference.


Ingredients

  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, spiralized
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  •  1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 ½ cups chicken bone broth 
  • 1 cup crushed tomatoes
  • Dairy free cheese and green onion to garnish
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Heat extra virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onion, carrot and celery. Cook for 3 minutes until onion is translucent and veggies are softened. 

  • Increase heat to high and add ground turkey.  Cook for 5 minutes, breaking meat up as it cooks, until beef has browned and is no longer pink. Add oregano, garlic powder, smoked paprika and chili powder. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  • Stir in the chicken broth and the crushed tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium-low and bring to a simmer; add spiralized sweet potatoes and cook for another 10 minutes until sweet potatoes are slightly softened and sauce is reduced. Remove from heat and top with chopped tomatoes and spring onions. Serve warm.
