Southwest Burger Bowl from Love of Paleo

I’ll be making a new section on my blog under the recipes titled “Bowls”.  I’ll be capturing flavours of all our favourite foods in the form of salads basically.  Bowls are great for meal prep if you have a hard time with reheated food.  It took a while to recreate a paleo southwest sauce like I really wanted but it ended up working!

1/2 lb ground beef

1/2 minced onion

1 egg

1/2 tbsp chipotle powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp salt

Instructions for Patty

Combine all ingredients in small mixing bowl.  Make into 2-3 patties.  Fry in small pan, flipping occasionally for 10 minutes.

Ingredients for Salad

1/2 head iceberg lettuce, chopped

1/2 tomato, sliced and diced

1 slice of onion

1 tsp dijon mustard

1 carrot, shredded

1/2 avocado, slice in a super appealing way

Instructions for Salad

Make it all look nice or just throw it all in a bowl, it’s gonna taste the same regardless.

Ingredients for Sauce

1 egg yolk

1 tbsp lemon

1 1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp dijon mustard

1 cup Pure Olive Oil (this is specific)

1/4 roasted red pepper, chopped

1 tsp chipotle powder

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp garlic powder

Instructions for Sauce

Just like every other sauce in the world, it’s important to follow exactly.

Preheat oven to 350F.  First, chop the red pepper and combine it with 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp oregano and roasted, tossing occasionally for 30 minutes.  Set to the side to cool.

In a small mixing bowl, combine egg yolk with lemon, dijon and the other tsp of salt.  Add 1 tablespoon only of Pure olive oil to yolk mixture and mix in completely.  Do this 4-5 more times until mixture begins to lighten in colour and thicken.  At this point you can add the rest of the olive oil, chilli powder and chipotle powder.  Mix roasted red peppers.  Do not blend.  Spoon over salad.
