Sometimes, you just need a simple, Paleo meal! You know what I’m talking about. It’s getting late, it’s been a long day, and you have little energy for cooking.
Why not make up some Paleo Hamburger Helper?!
Perhaps the simplest I’ve seen is a recipe posted to Facebook on Sunday via Butterflies, Peace Paleo — a recipe the blogger calls a favorite Sunday night recipe!
Three ingredients, people!
- green cabbage
- hamburger meat
Cook the cabbage and hamburger meat in a big pot, and top your bowl of Paleo Hamburger Helper with some avocado!
I used to do a similar type of Paleo Hamburger Helper using roasted cauliflower as a base! Delicious!
You can definitely do variations of this as well — if you’d like to get more creative and complicated.
For example, toss in some fire-roasted tomatoes for some added flavor.
Make “Taco Hamburger Helper” by using some homemade taco seasoning, cabbage, bell peppers, jalapenos, salsa, guac/and/or avocado.
Use shredded chicken, or ground turkey, or ground chicken!
Make an Asian-inspired “Hamburger Helper” using sesame oil, scallions, coconut aminos, ginger and things like sugar snap peas!
Make a Sloppy Joe themed “Hamburger Helper” using cabbage, ground beef, diced tomatoes and tomato sauce!
Make a GREEK “Hamburger Helper,” using cabbage, ground lamb, cucumber, olives, and a tahini sauce.
Make a Bacon Cheeseburger “Hamburger Helper” using cabbage, ground beef, bacon, cheese, and a mayo-type sauce.
I mean, the ideas are endless!
This would make an awesome lazy weekend dinner, or busy weeknight dinner!
