Paleo Lemon Cardamom Moroccan Meatballs

Lemon Cardamom Moroccan Meatballs

Amy 5 comments

I’ve real­ly been crav­ing some fla­vor­ful fresh Moroc­can and Mediter­ranean cui­sine, and it was about time I’d made these divine Lemon Car­damom Moroc­can Meat­balls.  I sim­ply swapped out the bread­crumbs from the orig­i­nal recipe for some LSA mix that’s huge­ly pop­u­lar with the health food­ies here in Aus­tralia. It’s a mix of ground Lin­seed, Sun­flower Seeds, and Almonds. It’s loaded with nutri­ents and makes a great binder in cook­ing, or sub­sti­tute for flours in baked goods. And for all those back home in Read more […]

Moussaka–A Traditional Greek Delight!

Talk about long-time-no-see! My sin­cer­est apolo­gies for hav­ing neglect­ed my blog for the past few months. I knew I wouldn’t be updat­ing near­ly as fre­quent­ly, but I didn’t real­ize just how jam-packed my new unem­ployed life would be, in the best way pos­si­ble, of course. I have been back in the states for a month now shuf­fling from one place to anoth­er for wed­dings, fam­i­ly vis­its, friend catch-ups, and I just fin­ished cook­ing for a two-week retreat at the won­der­ful Insight Retreat Cen­ter in San­ta Cruz.

Paleo Grass-fed Beef Burger on a Sweet Potato Pancake Bun

Paleo Burgers with Sweet Potato Pancake Buns

Amy No Comments

 My broth­er sent me the Prac­ti­cal Paleo cook­book months ago, from which I made her deli­cious herb salts and yum­my sauteed red cab­bage. But when he sent the book, my broth­er specif­i­cal­ly men­tioned some burg­ers with sweet pota­to pan­cake buns, which sound­ed crazy good! But for some rea­son, it has tak­en me THIS long to get around to mak­ing them. I’m telling you so you don’t make that same mis­take. Make these IMMEDIATELY. You will be so hap­py that you did. The sweet pota­to pan­cakes are incred­i­ble Read more […]

Bobotie--South African Paleo Meatloaf

Bobotie — South African Meatloaf

Amy No Comments

My Cajun Paleo Meat­loaf remind­ed me how much I love meat­loaf! It makes the per­fect week­day left­overs, and is so easy to take for a hearty home-cooked lunch at the office. But this isn’t just any ordi­nary meat­loaf, it’s Bobotie! Which is South African meat­loaf. I’m not exact­ly sure where it stems from, but I have had a long-stand­ing obses­sion with South Africa. They’ve got beau­ti­ful beach­es, great wines, and cul­ture like I’ve nev­er expe­ri­enced. I can’t wait until the day I vis­it and taste their Read more […]

Cajun Paleo Meatloaf with Garlic Mashed Cauliflower and Sauteed Rainbow Chard

Cajun Paleo Meatloaf

The food in Asia was com­plete­ly amaz­ing, but after three weeks, all I want­ed was some good old fash­ioned Amer­i­can com­fort food! I arrived back in LA late Sat­ur­day night, and still suf­fer­ing from jet­lag, I was up at 5:30am Sun­day plan­ning my first cook­ing endeav­or after 3 weeks of being away from the kitchen. I raced off to the gro­cery store and it was like Sprouts had antic­i­pat­ed my home­com­ing with their organ­ic 100%grass-fed beef on sale. How per­fect! I imme­di­ate­ly set out mak­ing this deli­cious Read more […]
