Coconut Curry Chicken Soup

Transforming dinner into restaurant-quality seems like a challenge and hassle, yet reading coconut curry chicken soup seems more like a task than a dish. However, a creating a restaurant-quality meal does not have to be an impending doom, this slow-cooker recipe offers all the quality without the worry.

The coconut milk makes the soup creamy with a smooth texture. This Coconut Curry Chicken Soup provides a warmth needed for the impending Fall/Winter season. Whether a cold day has you stuck indoors or a family get together is upon the horizon, soup is the automatic necessity for a blistery day.

When it comes to recipes, finding a decent homemade soup usually tends to be only chicken noodle based broths. However, adding a traditional spice with a creamy texture can add a hint of adventure to a healthy meal. This main paleo dish will upgrade the old school chicken noodle into something exciting!

Paleo Avocado Tuna Salad

Tuna is always an easy and healthy choice for a Paleo-on-the-go snack or meal. The problem with tuna is the fact that I love mayo with it! I try to have Paleo Mayo ready for the week, but sometimes the Paleo mayo making does not happen. This “Tuna Salad” is what I try instead. I love the creamy avocado with the tuna.

Give it a whirl and let me know how you like it!

Beef Taco Salad

Nothing says easy like a beef taco or regular taco salad… But taco salads at restaurants can harbor soybean oil, beans, rice, tortilla chips or my favorite – the huge tortilla bowl.

Beef taco salads can easily be made at home with super fresh ingredients, and taste amazing!

The secret to a good taco or taco salad is the taco seasoning… This taco seasoning has chipotle, salt, garlic powder, cumin and some cayenne pepper for kick!

Sliced Sweet Potato Bread

This recipe is for a Paleo Sweet Potato Bread that could fit into anytime of year. However, this time of year, I love pumpkin lattes, pumpkin bread, and everything that has to do with “Pumpkin Spice”.  Many of my favorite fall recipes can be “paleoized” into recipes that use ingredients that are high in nutrients, rather than the empty carbs of traditional bread recipes. IMG_8900

Sweet Potatoes are a great source of many vitamins and minerals and make a great base for muffins, bread, and other dessert or snack treats.

This recipe is super easy, and tastes great!

Almost all of the ingredients are stocked ingredients in the Paleo Pantry including coconut milk, coconut flour, maple syrup and dark chocolate.

Sardine Boats

Sardinesimage have excellent health benefits and are tasty as well. I know, when I first heard about sardines, I was hesitant to try them. But time and time again, I read about the anti-inflammatory properties of sardines, as well as, the high omega-3, which is great from everything to skin health to preventing cancer. Honestly, if you like canned tuna fish (but maybe find it a little dry), this oily fish is a great alternative.

Some things about buying sardines:

  1. Make sure that they are skinless and boneless. There are still a few tiny, tiny bones, but they just make the fish a little crunchy. The ones that still have the skin and full bones still scare me a little bit (especially to eat!).
  2. Buy sardines that are packed in oil. The ones that I usually buy are in olive oil. Yes, they are an oily fish, but the ones packed in water just don’t taste as good.

So, this really isn’t a cooking recipe as a great snack or breakfast idea. Often times, I have a little basil plant in the house, and a trim off a basil leaf and fill it with sardines…. so simple, but so delicious. Sometimes I put hot sauce or tomato with the sardine filling, or mix the sardines with some Paleo mayo to create a “sardine salad” with the basil. Really the sky is the limit with this little snack gem.

 

Ingredients

1 package of sardines (boneless, skinless and packed in oil)

1/4 cup of Paleo Mayo (we will have a recipe soon on the site)

1 tomato, sliced (any type will do. Each type has a slightly different texture and taste, so experiment with different types)

8-10 basil leaves

 

Instructions

Mix Paleo Mayo with sardines in a bowl. Place a little bit of the “sardine salad” into each basil leaf.

Place tomato slice on the top.

Enjoy

Sweet Curry Roasted Chicken with Vegetables

Roasted chicken is an easy go-to for those dinners where I am stretched for time. This is a “twist” on the traditional roasted chicken recipe.

Using one of my favorite ingredients, curry, this dish is sure to please and smells delicious! The mustard and honey makes the curry a great, sweet flavor.

Traditional curries usually have white potatoes as an addition to the meat. I “paleoized” the ingredient and added one root vegetable – carrots, and of course, cauliflower. The sweet curry becomes a glaze with the carrots and are delicious with the sweet curry sauce.  I love the cauliflower instead of the traditional rice that is served with curry dishes.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken (about 3 pounds)
  • 6 carrots, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 tablespoons grass-fed butter butter
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Place the chicken in a roasting pan and roast 1 hour in the preheated oven (oven times vary – make sure to check the chicken).
  3. In a saucepan, heat to medium and melt the butter
  4. Mix the honey, mustard, onion, curry powder, salt, cayenne pepper, ginger, and garlic.
  5. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  6. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  7. Gently pour the curry and honey mixture over the chicken. Continue roasting about 20 minutes, or until the glaze has browned. The chicken meat should reach an internal temperature of 180 degrees F (85 degrees C).
  8. Place carrots and cauliflower in a separate roasting pan.
  9. Drizzle and roast the vegetables with the chicken for the last 20 minutes, or until the glaze has browned.
