Beef & Sweet Potato Chowder
Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 8-10 servings
  • 1-2 lbs lean ground beef, grass-fed or leanest you can find
  • 6-8 cups beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 bags frozen cauliflower, thawed slightly and chopped
  • 2 cups cashew or almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon Herbamare
  • pepper to taste
  1. Take cauliflower out of freezer to begin thawing.
  2. Brown ground beef and then put in colander and run hot water over the beef to remove as much fat as you can. Let strain.
  3. In a large stockpot heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil until melted. Add onion to stockpot and cook until translucent. Add sweet potatoes, cauliflower, broth, and seasonings. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Once boiling, back the heat down to medium and keep the soup at a low boil for 20 minutes. Add in strained beef and cashew milk. Lower heat and let simmer for 10 minutes more.
Cashew milk has more of a creamier texture than almond milk, but either will work fine in this recipe.

Beef roast with sweet potatoes is one of my favorite comfort foods. I wanted to put together a soup that had those same delicious flavors. This Beef & Sweet Potato Chowder turned out exactly like I hoped – warm and comforting.

Tips for making Beef & Sweet Potato Chowder:

  • Optional: Puree one of the bags of thawed cauliflower in a food processor and then add it to the soup. It will make the soup a little thicker.
  • I added a little bit of “Hello Cheese” from the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook on top of my bowl and it gave it some extra yum. If you can eat regular cheese you could add a wedge of Light Laughing Cow cheese.
  • If you can make your own beef broth, it will make this soup extra good. Dr. Axe has an excellent post on the health benefits of bone broth.
  • I use Herbamare seasoning in my recipe. It’s an organic seasoning salt that has herbs and vegetables infused in the sea salt. It is our favorite, but feel free to use your favorite seasoned salt.

Trim Healthy Mamas this soup is an E.

    Can I use fresh cauliflower or why only frozen? Thank you.

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Yes, you can use fresh cauliflower. I just like the simplicity of the frozen and I usually have some on hand. 🙂

    Could I use almond milk instead of cashew? would that change the fat?? Thanks

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Stephanie, almond milk would work fine. Cashew milk has a little bit of a creamier texture, but that would really be the only difference. And no, it would not change the fats.

    I made this last weekend. My new favorite dish. It is fulfilling but light on the stomach.

    I did not use Herbamare, but have ordered some. Thanks for posting this delightful recipe, Mamashire. You, obviously, rock!

      Aww, thanks Lou!

    Can I use coconut milk? Can’t have nuts.

    • MamaShire (Author)

      Hi Jennifer, I’m looking at a can of full fat coconut milk and it looks like you would be able to use 1 cup of it and still be able to keep it an E. More than that and it would take it into a crossover. Lite coconut milk and the carton coconut milk would not have as much fat so you may be able to use more of them and keep it an E. Just check the fat in the serving size. You need to watch the fat in the beef and the coconut milk to keep it under 5 grams per serving. Or just don’t add any milk and it will be a soup instead of a chowder.
