The Best AIP Recipes to Be Created In My Kitchen So Far

I’m a sucker for a good, end-of-year “Best of ” list. They inspire me to read more, listen to more music, see more films. So I decided to make a list of my own. These are my favorite, kind of special AIP recipes I’ve made in the past six months of doing the Autoimmune Protocol. In general, I have a few easy go-to meals: they work for me, taste good, and are in my price range. But I like to try a new recipe every other week or so, experimenting with new ingredients and getting creative with adaptations if necessary. This “Best Of” list represents only a fraction of the many delicious-looking recipes I want to try. Despite being a “limited” diet, there are truly unlimited possibilities of delicious foods to eat. I so much appreciate the talented people who create and share their recipe ideas!

Beef and Butternut Stew

Beef and Butternut Stew from Autoimmune-Paleo – Slightly sweet and very satisfying. I made it with grass-fed stew beef from my favorite farmer.

Cauliflower Casserole from PaleoPorn – This tastes a lot like the cheesy potato bake that features in my family’s Christmas spread. It is AMAZING, and something I plan to make again if I ever need to bring a dish to a potluck.

Fall Harvest Mash from Multiply Delicious – Brought this to my family Christmas and it was a huge hit! Omitted nuts to make it AIP.

Me, eating Sweet Potato Ice Cream straight out of the ice cream maker.

Sweet Potato Ice Cream from PaleOMG – An amazing treat, especially when first starting AIP and missing other treats. I simplified it to simply use sweet potato, coconut milk, and cinnamon, omitting nutmeg and nut topping. It quickly became a favorite of mine during the summer!

Moroccan Lamb Heart Stew from the Paleo Mom – I have to admit, I felt a little weird about eating the heart of a lamb. A farmer was literally giving them away at the farmers market one week, and I didn’t really think about it until I got home with a bag brimming with free lamb hearts, that it might be, I don’t know, a little sad. Beyond that, I had no idea what to do with it. Enter this recipe from the Paleo Mom. I omitted all the seed-based spices, and I didn’t have palm oil to use, which she says really makes the taste unique. Though the AIP version probably doesn’t taste like the original is intended, it was delicious. I loved the combination of apricots and olives with the delicious meat.

Vegan Avocado Ranch Dressing from Feed Me Rachel – Perfect way to spice up plain burgers and lettuce wraps, which I find myself eating quite a bit.

Dairy Free Banana Carob Pudding from The Tasty Alternative – This was a recent discovery when dealing with some desperate Christmas chocolate cravings. It’s hard to believe I’ve gone nearly six months without chocolate! Carob is an AIP-legal alternative, and I had a bag sitting around. I chose to not add any sweetener besides the banana and it resulted in a rich, delicious, creamy treat that totally satisfied my desire for the Dove chocolates given to me for Christmas by well-meaning family members.

Coconut Flour Apple Crumble

Coconut Flour Apple Crumble from “And Love It Too” – I made this twice, once with my mom for my birthday dessert and once with friends. Delicious. Careful though – it has a high sugar content from the honey or maple syrup mixed in.
