Strawberry Nutella Scones (Vegan, Paleo)

I’m particularly pleased with this recipe. I was able to utilize hazelnut pulp (from homemade hazelnut milk) and create an original recipe that tasted great and is easy to reproduce. The scones aren’t too sweet, with hints of strawberry, cocoa, and hazelnut. My recommendation: enjoy these toasted with nut butter […]

 

Tuna & Salmon Poke Bowls

If you’re not familiar with Poke, it can best be described as diced raw, marinated fish – often tuna or salmon – which is tossed over rice and topped with vegetables and super-flavorful sauces. The word Poke means “to slice or cut” in Hawaiian. This recipe from Bon Appetit requires […]

 

Spicy Sesame String Beans

This recipe comes from “Bi-Rite Market’s Eat Good Food“. String beans are a great veggie for a family dinner. They’re available fresh or frozen, and have a mild, sweet taste that easily conforms to whatever seasoning and flavor combinations you apply to them. This side dish comes together in less […]

 

Chicken Larb Lettuce Wraps

Larb is a classic Lao meat salad served at room temperature, making it perfect hot weather food. The seasoning for the meat is spicy; the lettuce wraps are crunchy and light; and serving the dish with raw vegetables or salad offers beautiful contrast. We served Spicy Sesame String Beans as […]

 

Matcha Chia Pudding (Vegan)

After falling in love with a basic recipe for chia pudding we adapted from “Tu Casa Mi Casa”, we’ve begun to iterate and create variations on the original. The Strawberry Cashew Chia Pudding we made using homemade strawberry cashewmilk was delicious. This version uses almond milk and matcha green tea […]

 

Pork Tomatillo Stew

We adapted this recipe from the Whole Life Challenge website. The original recipe used turkey, and you could just as easily use chicken. We opted for pork cutlets which we broiled in the oven and served on top of the tart stew.  

 

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Muffins

We’ve been making homemade nut milks, both almond and cashews. It’s a lot easier than we thought, as most of the time is passive while you wait for the nuts to soak in water. The one element we dislike in the process, is after blending the soaked nuts in fresh […]

 

Paleo Zucchini Fritters

Our late summer farm baskets have included beautiful summer squash, and we’ve been having fun finding news ways to serve it. Thanks to Paleo Running Momma for the original recipe for these fritters, which include crumbled bacon!  

 

Fish a la Talla with Grilled Pineapple

This grilled fish entree comes from “Tu Casa Mi Casa” by Enrique Olvera. The adobo sauce is wonderful; I’d describe it as a thick and spicy, sugar-free Mexican ketchup or as a smooth enchilada sauce. The recipe makes more sauce than you need for the snapper, so we’ve been able […]

 

Chicken Tikka Masala with Saag

Our boys love Indian food, especially creamy Butter Chicken or spicy Chicken Tikka Masala. We knew that preparing the latter for dinner would be a sure win, but we also wanted to serve a veggie side dish that we’d all enjoy. We had a half-bag of spinach in the freezer; […]
