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; […]

 

Salmon Dill Burgers

If you’re sick of typical burgers (think beef, turkey, or veggie) then I suggest you give this patty a try. It’s surprisingly tasty, and super-fast prep which makes it ideal for a busy weeknight. We served ours with rice, steamed asparagus, and a green salad. Skip the rice to keep […]

 

Curried Coconut Sweet Potato Mash

We found this recipe in “Bi-Rite Market’s Eat Good Food” cookbook, which was gifted to us years ago by good friends. The original recipe isn’t vegan, but other than that, we didn’t make any changes. We made this thinking it would be a good side dish, but it turns out […]

 

Brussels Sprouts Salad

The first time I tried Brussels Sprouts 20 years ago, I hated them. My husband (then boyfriend) brought home a bag from our local grocer, and proceeded to torture them until they were unedible. Neither of us is sure what he did to them, but they tasted bitter and mushy. […]

 

Peach Blueberry Paleo Crumble

Once you stop adding sugar to every recipe, the natural sweetness of the ingredients really does display itself in full glory. This dessert is 100% sweetened by the fruit; it’s fresh and delicious, and absolutely perfect for late summer when stone fruits are ripe and beautiful.  

 

Paleo Chili

This is a great back-to-school recipe because your kids can help chop veggies, and the chili can simmer on the stove top during homework or bath time. The spiciness of this chili is variable by adding more or less chili powder to your taste. We added slices of cool avocado […]

 

Ground Pork Stir-Fry

This is another fast and easy way to use up any wilting veggies left in your fridge at the end of the week. This recipe is super versatile; simply swap in any ground meat or tempeh for the protein, and mix and match veggies to make a nutritious and tasty […]

 

Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes

Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? We certainly do, especially our boys. These light-as-souffle pancakes work just as well for breakfast as they did for our dinner last week. My older son helped me mix the batter, and then enjoyed his pancakes covered in maple syrup, but my younger son […]
