Paleo snack recipe baba ghanoush

This Paleo snack recipe baba ghanoush is also an Arabic dip or condiment similar to hummus but instead of chickpeas, uses eggplants and is perfectly Paleo so it’s great as an alternative to eat what you normally dipped into hummus.

Paleo Snack Recipe Baba Ghanoush – Also great as a dip

The use of roasted eggplant gives it a great smokey flavour which is just amazing with the tahini, lemon juice and garlic. Tahini is a sesame butter very popular in Arabic cuisine.

 

I opt for organic vegetables. It’s important to use coconut oil as a cooking fat for A true Paleo version. The tahini I used is store bought and I made sure it’s organic and free from all the chemical crap.

How to make Paleo Mayonnaise

 

This is one of those recipes that you save for later and will be an ingredient in many other recipes to come.

This can be extended to other forms. For example, I do a version with garlic. A friend of mine does the baconnaise version

Since going Paleo, this has been a welcome addition to our lives.

How to make a Paleo mayonnaise

I opt for free range eggs. It’s important to use extra virgin olive oil as a mixer as coconut oil on its own will go too hard. Go for extra virgin versions of both.

 

This is one of those dishes that does not require any cooking and is so easy to make.

 

This recipe makes 20 servings. Has a prep time of about 5 minutes no cooking time.

 

The whole dish for 20 servings contains

 

paleo mayo

Ingredients

 

2 egg yolks

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

3 tablespoon lemon juice

½ cup olive oil

½ cup coconut oil

Salt and pepper

 

Method

 

  1. I would highly recommend you use a blender or a food processor for this as doing this with a whisk and hand will be extremely painful
  2. Mix yolks in bowl with mustard and only 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice
  3. Start whisking and add oil mixture a drop by drop at a time. The aim here is to get an emulsion by adding it bit by bit. Add too much too fast and the oil will start to separate.
  4. As emulsion forms, it gets easier and you can add more oil at a time at this stage.
  5. When all oil is added, you can add the rest of the lemon juice and season to taste.

Paleo Diet Red Meat Dinner Recipe – Beef Short Ribs

Here’s A Paleo Diet Dinner Recipe Just For You

paleo beef short ribs paleo dinner red meat recipe

Beef Short Ribs Are A Great Paleo Diet Dinner Recipe

As the days get colder (in the UK at present) thought I’d share this great Paleo diet red meat recipe and one of my favourites to warm me and the family up. A great beef short rib recipe.

 

I opt for local grass fed beef ribs. The vegetables are from my local market to keep it as organic as possible and least amount of exposure to chemicals and preservatives. I did use store bought tomato paste and beef stock cubes with no added salt.

 

This is one of those dishes that you start preparing in the morning or early afternoon for a great hearty dinner to enjoy with the family.

 

This recipe serves 6. Has a prep time of about 1.5 hours and a total coking time of 2 hours and 15 minutes.

 

The whole dish for 6 people contains

paleo beef short ribs paleo dinner red meat recipe

 

 

Ingredients

6 beef short ribs

1 fennel core dived and top removed

1 leek with the green part removed and white part cut into 1 inch thick pieces.

2 onions chopped

6 celery stalks cut into 1 inch thick pieces.

2 carrots in 1 inch pieces.

3 cloves garlic minced.

2 tbsp tomato paste

6 cups beef stock

1 bottle dry red wine

Few fresh rosemary sprigs

Few fresh thyme sprigs

Cooking fat

Sea salt and ground pepper

 

Method

 

  1. Preheat your oven at 400 degrees
  2. Now, place the beef short ribs on a foil covered sheet. Now season this with sea salt and ground pepper to your taste. Now pop these in the oven for 15 minutes to roast.
  3. Now whilst the beef is roasting in the oven, get a pot on the go on medium heat to cook the fennel, leek, onion, celery and the carrots. I used coconut oil and cooked for 15 minutes.
  4. After this, throw the garlic in and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  5. Pour in the red wine and tomato paste. I added more salt and pepper here to taste but this is upto you. Bring to a boil and reduce the mixture to about half the original level. For me, it takes about 10 minutes.
  6. Next, remember the ribs in the oven, add these to the pot. Add the beef stock and bring to a nice simmer.
  7. Drop the oven temperature to 300 F whilst this is simmering. After summer, cover and place in the oven for 2 hours.
  8. Now, take the meat out of the pot and set aside for later.
  9. Remove and discard the thyme and rosemary sprigs. Now bring the remaining mixture to a boil.
  10. Bring the mixture to a nice simmer for 20 minutes. Do this uncovered to bring the liquid level down to desired thickness. I like mine sort of thicker so I simmer uncovered for 25 minutes.
  11. Add the meat in the last 5 minutes to warm it up and serve. Enjoy!!!
