Recipes

Roasted veg vindaloo with golden gnarly chicken skewers
 (Click on the link to be sent to the recipe) - You can't go wrong with Jamie Oliver!!

Review: Oh my gosh! This meal is amazing!! The curry paste is to die for!! I would flag the actual curry and make the curry paste and just fry the chicken in it. It is really that good! 


Beef stroganoff
(Click on the title to be taken to the recipe). Paleo Leap always has amazing recipes! 

I might also serve this on a bed of zucchini noodles: 

Zucchini noodles3 zucchini, skin peeled and then peeled into noodles
4 garlic, crushed
olive oil 

1 Boil a pot of water, toss the zucchini noodles into the boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain. Put the zucchini noodles into a frypan on a medium heat, along with the olive oil and garlic. Heat for a few minutes. When serving, place the beef stroganoff onto the zucchini noodles.



Pulled pork in sweet potatoes (kumara)
Oh my! Found this recipe when I was searching the paleo leap website for a beef stroganoff recipe. Doesn't it look amazing!! I am rather excited to try this.

It has home made bbq sauce in the recipe - here is the link to that: http://paleoleap.com/homemade-paleo-condiments/#s9

Review: Dam good!! Yep, another winner. This was really tasty, and a very simple meal to make! If you don't have the time to make your own bbq, I won't judge you for using store brought! What ever is easiest for you and your family, do it! Also served this with peas and crispy bacon - would have liked the bacon to be crisper, but I got impatient and cooked the peas with the bacon, so it was either going to be very over cooked peas or not crispy bacon... not crispy bacon it was! 


Frittata

This weeks frittata is going to be a collection of things: roasted pumpkin, red capsicum, feta (maybe - we have some in the fridge that I might use in this), red onion, baby spinach (or kale), bacon, almond milk, and around 10 eggs. Baked in the oven at 180C, for around 25 - 30 minutes, until it is cooked through. Easy peasy! 


The Best Baked Beans
A lovely lady, Robyn, sent me a copy of Petite Kitchens recipe for the "Best Baked Beans".
This will be served with mashed avocado, corn, and natural yogurt (for the kids). 


2 tbsps ghee, butter or olive oil1 leek, white part only, cut in half lengthways, then finely chopped
6 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1 handful of thyme leaves, roughly chopped
1 litre chicken or vegetable stock125g tomato paste400g tin white beans, such as butterbeans, or cannelini beans. 


1 Melt the ghee in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the leek and garlic and saute for 10 minutes, until soft and slightly browned.
2 Add the thyme, stock, tomato paste and beans and bring to a gentle boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 25-45 minutes, until the liquid has reduced by half - the sauce should be thick and pulpy.
3 Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
4 The beans will keep for 1 week in an airtight container in the fridge.


Enjoy!
