Default Paleo Chow

Since a bunch of us are doing the paleo diet now (to varying degrees), here's a thread to collect the best recipes that we've found.

Note: Let's keep this thread specific to paleo recipes. If it's posted, it's paleo. Put anything else in the other food threads.

Note #2: Only post the recipe if you've actually made it and can vouch for how good it is.

PALEO CABBAGE ROLLS:

Here is that killer paleo cabbage rolls recipe that I found online:

Ingredients:
12 large cabbage leaves
1 egg
1/4 cup chicken or beef stock
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 lb ground beef
1 cup cauliflower, grated
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 tbsp lemon juice
Sea salt and black pepper to taste

(note: the ingredients above are from the recipe. I double the tomato sauce and lemon juice to make more sauce)

Directions:
- Blanch the cabbage leaves by placing them in a pot of boiling salted water for about 2 minutes (until the cabbage leaves start to soften). Drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking.
- Combine together the stock, onion, ground beef, cauliflower, and egg. Season the mixture to taste with the sea salt and black pepper.
- Place the soft cabbage leaves on a flat surface and fill each one with 1/12 of the meat mixture near the base of the leaves.
- Fold the sides of the leaves and roll them on themselves to close up the mixture inside.
- Prepare the sauce by combining together the tomato sauce with the lemon juice. Season the sauce to taste with the sea salt and black pepper.
- Place the stuffed cabbage rolls inside a crock pot and cover them with the tomato sauce.
- Cook on low for 7-9 hours.

Prep time usually takes me about a half hour (dipping around with the cabbage leaves takes the longest). My wife and I will typically eat half of them that day and save the rest for leftovers. They heat up perfectly.

Good chow. I did them with that 90% lean grass fed beef you can get from Whole Foods and they came out great.

PALEO BREAKFAST BARS:

From: http://www.elanaspantry.com/paleo-breakfast-bread/

Ingredients:
1/2 cup creamy roasted almond butter
2 eggs
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon stevia (or coconut palm sugar)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
coconut oil

For the ingredients, get gluten free/non gmo stuff.

1. In a large bowl, use a hand blender and mix the almond butter until creamy
2. Mix in eggs, honey, vanilla extract, and stevia
3. Add salt, baking soda, and cinnamon
4. Mix well until it's all blended together and smooth.
5. Use coconut oil to grease up a standard 8X8 baking dish (basic brownie pan).
6. Pour the batter into the pan, spread it evenly.
7. Bake at 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes (I do 15)

That's it. It makes four large pieces. I eat that for breakfast along with a ton of water. Really easy to make and extremely tasty.

Have you used the Stevia? I saw it at Traders, but wasn't sure if it would be "healthier" than the sugar.

yep. got it at Whole Foods. Works fine, and a little goes a long way.

Some Paleo books say it's a viable thing to use, others say it's a No No. I've used it without issue.

To clarify: I've only used it in those paleo breakfast bars, and that recipe does NOT call for a lot. Indeed, you can probably get by with just the honey as a sweetener.

I made the following three desserts for the 4th of July. All three of them came out amazing, especially the pie. I can highly recommend any/all of them:

http://www.elanaspantry.com/gluten-f...ot-power-bars/
http://www.elanaspantry.com/coconut-bars/
http://www.elanaspantry.com/banana-cream-pie/
http://www.elanaspantry.com/paleo-pie-crust/ (for the pie above)

The only problem I had was with the pie setting in the fridge. It just wouldn't solidify at all. I ended up putting it in the freezer for about an hour before serving and that helped put it into a form that could be sliced and served. It tasted amazing so nobody complained that it had the consistency of pudding.

Those breakfast bars are pretty tasty, Matt. We made our first batch last night and had them this morning. We used half of the cinnamon (we ran out) and they tasted awesome. Thanks for that recipe.

cool, glad you liked 'em. They're great to pound in the morning when you simply don't have time to make a big breakfast.

Paleo Fajitas:

ingredients:
  • 1 pound chicken breast (cut into strips)
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • salsa
  • guacamole (this recipe is the SHIT, or just avocado slices to your liking)
  • cumin, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, other spicy spices
  • coconut oil
  • lemon juice (half a lemon, lime juice)


steps:
  • cut chicken breasts into strips and season with seasonings above. Chill for at least 30 mins - 1 hour in the fridge to marinate in spicyness.
  • cut up onion/peppers in to strips
  • heat up wok/skillet on medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.
  • add onions first. About 3 mins.
  • add chicken and stir occasionally (so it doesn't burn) for about 10-12 mins
  • right before the chicken is cooked through completely, add peppers and some lemon juice/lime juice (like half a lemon/lime is good)
  • NOM NOM NOM on a plate with some guacamole/avocado and some salsa mixed in.
