As you may know, I’ve been cooking a lot from Diane Sanfilippo’s new book, Practical Paleo, and have even posted a couple of the recipes. In honor of everything I’ve made so far, as well as her awesome book, here’s a little photo recap of the dishes I’ve tried. In case you’re wondering, all the dishes were delicious and are worthy of making again … and again … and again. Sorry, but aside from the dishes and recipes I already shared from Diane’s book (I mentioned below – in the captions of the photos – which recipes you can find in previous posts), I did not share the other recipes I tried. Hopefully, it’ll be an incentive for you to buy the book! I can’t keep giving away all her recipes, after all!
Balsamic braised short ribs on top of candied carrots. I can’t have balsamic vinegar because of the SCD, so Diane recommended subbing apple cider vinegar instead. It turned out great!
Candied carrots after they came out of the oven.
The very first recipe I tried (while I was in Michigan) was the summer squash caprese noodle salad. I didn’t have a julienne peeler though, so I cut the zucchini into thin strips instead. Click for the recipe from a previous post.
Mustard glazed chicken thighs and zucchini pancakes.
Pistachio mooless mousse. Click for the recipe from a previous post.
I also mixed together a small batch of the chocolate mooless mousse for Jesse. I can’t have cocoa quite yet though.
Mashed faux-tatoes and chorizo meatballs, made with grass-fed ground beef instead of pork.
Hayley’s skirt steak tacos (turned salad). Click for the recipe from a previous post.
Another batch of mashed faux-tatoes, but made with orange cauliflower this time.
Light buttercups — these were melt-in-your-mouth amazing! The recipe calls for almond butter, but I used sunflower seed butter because I had some on hand. (Photo taken on iPhone)
Another shot of the light buttercups. Aren’t they beautiful? I served them at a dinner party and they were a hit!
