Paleo Pasta Bolognese

Standard

It’s hard pressed to find anyone that doesn’t love Italian, but when you’re Paleo, it often means making your favorite Italian recipes Paleo-friendly at home. This recipe was created for that exact purpose – to satisfy cravings for traditional Italian, in a Paleo-friendly way.

Growing up, we’d always enjoy Spaghetti Bolognese: pasta with a simply meat-based sauce originating from Bologna, Italy. Today, I can’t resist having this childhood favorite at least once a month, and thankfully Cappello’s almond-flour pasta makes this possible.

Let’s dive straight into the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 lb ground beef
2 servings of home-made Marinara Sauce
1 pack Cappello’s Fettucine (available in most health food stores)

RECIPE

In a large saucepan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat.
Place the ground beef in the pan to cook, stirring often.
Once the meat is light brown, add the pre-made Marinara Sauce, cover with a lid and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. This forms the home-made Bolognese Sauce.

In a medium pot, bring water to the boil and then add a pack of Cappello’s Fettucine.
Allow to cook in the boiling water for 45 seconds to a minute, stirring a few times.
Strain the pasta, plate it and dish a generous scoop of Bolognese sauce over the pasta before serving hot.
Top with ground black pepper, as desired.

Who says you can’t enjoy Italian and still be 100% Paleo?!

Simple Taco Seasoning

Standard

Tacos are one of the simplest dishes to make when you’re in a hurry. However, often times pre-made taco seasoning can be filled with unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients. Thankfully, homemade taco seasoning is simple to make and can be stored for future meal prep.

Here’s a simple and quick taco seasoning recipe. Make your life easy by making multiple batches and storing for future meals.

INGREDIENTS

1.5 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (substitute paprika if no spice is desired)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

RECIPE

Mix it all together.

We told you it was simple! Use this seasoning for tacos, fajitas and even barbecue rub. It’s also a great back-up for when you run out of your pre-made seasoning because you most likely have these spices already stocked in your spice cabinet.

Happy Cooking!

Paleo Potato Salad

Standard

I used to be one of those people who jealously eyed anyone indulging in potato salad at BBQ’s and picnics, in an attempt to steer clear of white potatoes and stay true to my Paleo lifestyle.

And then it dawned on me – there was a sneaky little solution that would have even the most die-hard potato salad fan pondering if anything was different – the white-fleshed sweet potato!

This is a fantastic Paleo Potato Salad option that is so delicious you’ll have to make twice as much so there’s some to share (at least if I’m coming to dinner!)

INGREDIENTS

1 medium organic white-fleshed sweet potato
1 large organic red apple of your choice
1 medium whole sweet and tangy pickle
1 medium organic onion, peeled
4 tablespoons organic, Paleo-friendly mayonnaise
1 heaped teaspoon Italian seasoning
Salt and pepper, to taste

 

RECIPE

In a medium pot, bring water to the boil.
Peel the potato and cut it into uniform slices, about 1/2 inch thick.
Place the potato slices in the pot and let boil.
While the potato cooks, cut the apple, onion and pickle into small cubes, about a half-a-dime-sized, or smaller.
Once the potato is fully cooked, but still firm, remove the potato slices from the pot and allow to cool before dicing into dime-sized pieces.
Combine all the ingredients together and mix gently before adding the mayonnaise.
Toss the salad to spread the mayonnaise evenly.
Add the Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste, and give it one final mix.
Seal in a dish and refrigerate until serving.
(Can be stored up to 5 days in the refrigerator.)

 
This recipe makes 4 to 6 side servings.

I hope you adore this Paleo-friendly side dish as much as I do, and get your potato salad fix while benefiting from the dietary fiber and array of nutrients it offers,
