Chipotle Spiced Mahi-Mahi with Chinese Eggplant

Chipotle and Eggplant are not necessarily two flavors that would come to mind as being a great match. However, the milder flavor of the Chinese Eggplant, as opposed to the stronger flavor of your run-of-the-mill large purple eggplant, really brings a sweetness to the dish that is only further accentuated by the tomato and sweet onion. The combination of this sweetness with the smoky Chipotle spice is even more delicious than expected. This is a great Paleo meal for 2 when you are short on time. Continue reading


Masala Chili with Kale & Kohlrabi

This hearty chili-like dish is exploding with aromatic Indian spices and packed with nutrition. It freezes beautifully, so this recipe is for a large batch and could easily be halved if desired. Adjust the amount of cayenne added to control the spiciness of the dish, the recipe has a bit of a kick as written. If you do dairy, this would be nice topped with a dollop of good yogurt.

Onion & Bison Soup

One of our favorite pre-Primal/Paleo soups was a good homemade French Onion soup served with a couple of slices of toasted baguette topped with broiled Provolone cheese. By removing the bread and cheese and adding in some great protein, in this case bison, we have transformed a soup that was previously an excuse to eat cheese toast into a hearty Paleo meal.

Sage & Lemon Chicken with Roasted Kobocha Squash

This is a very simple, yet satisfying meal. The infusion of sage and lemon flavor into the chicken goes beautifully with the sweetness of the Kabocha Squash. Kobocha is very similar in taste to Butternut squash or sweet potato. The slightly mashed texture of some of the squash is great with the crunch of the toasted squash seeds and the delicate fried sage leaves that tie the meal together. Continue reading


Thai Meatballs with Slaw

Ground beef is a great way to eat grassfed meat without spending a fortune on steaks, and is extremely versatile. This recipe is a wonderful combination of some our favorite Thai flavors. The warm coconut tomato sauce to accompany the meatballs goes wonderfully with the cooler flavors in the slaw, including lemon and cilantro. This recipe seems like a lot of work, but is well worth the effort, I promise! Continue reading


Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms with Rustic Tomato Sauce

This is one of those meals that you almost have to close your eyes while you chew each bite because it is so satisfying. The different textures presented by the meaty Portobello, the soft tomatoes in the sauce, and the crispy bits of the sausage is such a fantastic combination. We normally would have topped these with a bit of broiled Grana Parmesan or fresh mozzarella, but as we are doing a dairy free month, we omitted it but did not miss it at all. The rustic tomato sauce made with grape tomatoes is the perfect finishing touch. Continue reading
