Tiffiny Hall shares a mouthwatering and simple paleo mushroom burger recipe with sweet potato fries.
Who doesn’t love a burger, but for paleos, finding the right vegetable to wrap around the meat can be a challenge.
In this simple but super healthy recipe, mushrooms replace the bun – which actually tastes great, and teamed with sweet potato, it is a perfect paleo and low GI meal.
1 small sweet potato, cut into fries
1 tbs olive oil
250g beef mince
2 tsp mustard
4 Portobello or large mushrooms
Salt & pepper
1 onion finely sliced
2 slices tasty cheese
2 cos lettuce leaves
1 small tomato, sliced
Preheat oven to 180°C and line a baking tray. Toss sweet potato fries with half the oil, season with salt & pepper and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked and browned slightly.Meanwhile, in a bowl mix together beef and mustard and shape into 2 patties.
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat and grill mushrooms for a couple of minutes both sides. Remove and keep warm.
Add onion and sauté until brown, then push to one side while you cook beef patties, a few minutes on each side until cooked.
Add cheese slices to patties until almost melted. Remove from heat.
Using the mushrooms as buns, layer beef patties with tomato and lettuce and serve with sweet potato fries.
