AIP Lamb Curry with Cauliflower


This AIP Lamb Curry is tender, flavorful and so easy to prepare. It’s also paleo and Whole30 compliant and a perfect, comforting, one-pot meal.


  • 1 lb stewing lamb
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced/crushed
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, grated/finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped (plus more for garnishing)
  • 2 TBSP green onions, sliced
  • 2 TBSP olive oil or coconut oil 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt 
  • 1 small head of cauliflower, chopped into florets


  1. To a large glass or stainless steel bowl, add lamb and season generously with sea salt, sliced onion, crushed garlic, grated ginger, chopped cilantro, green onions. Allow to marinate at least 30 minutes.

  3. Increase heat to medium-high and add lamb, stirring continuously for 2-3 minutes. 
  4. Cover pot and allow lamb to cook on high heat 2-3 minutes further. 
  5. Add in chopped sweet potatoes,  lime juice, coconut milk, water and sea salt and bring to a boil.
