Alphabetical Listing & Descriptions:
Almond & Coconut Biscuits - a reliable and tasty baseline for endless variation - try adding chopped macadamia nuts, or cocoa and mint oil...
Almond Pancakes - these delicious babies are amazing any time of the day, and my Mum & the beau's Mom both enjoy them for breakfast everyday. See also: Coconut Pancakes.
Apricot & Walnut Balls - a healthy, sweet snack that travel well, if you can stop yourself eating them! Also delicious when you substitute dried dates for the apricots, and any nuts in place of the walnuts. Dates, cocoa & almonds may be my favourite combo now. Beware of the high sugar content of dried fruits.
Bacon-Wrapped Mini Frittata - because everything's better wrapped in bacon, especially eggy goodness!
Baked Almond Snapper - a collision between fried fish fingers & the desire to serve huge slabs of fish intact!
Baked Rainbow Trout with Cream Sauce - still one of my favourite recipes, as it maintains the moisture and flavour of the fish, whilst adding the extra flavours via the sauce, without necessitating a mucky, questionable white sauce mix to do so.
Baked Trout - a delicious trout preparation involving eggplant and gourmet sauce. Wonderful served with Warm Beet Salad Medley (part of same post).
Beef Curry I & Beef Curry II - a house favourite: a hearty but mild curry, with the meat ending up tender and flavoursome. Best served with Cauliflower Rice (see comment section of Beef Curry I).
Cauliflower Pizza - a must-have in any primal eater's repertoire! A delicious way to still enjoy pizza without the need for a grainy crust. It does require a copious amount of cheese - for a potentially dairy-free pizza option, try Meatza!
Caveman Chicken - my favourite! The combination of my tangy, nutty sauce and some freshly roasted chicken is a miracle to behold! (Recipe & image also include a range of veggie side dishes to compliment the main meal)
Caveman Crab Cakes - a great appetiser or entree for the crabmeat lover. Great by themselves, or can be used like a bread to spread tasty dips upon.
Cherry Ripe Bites - bite-sized sweet treats for those who want a healthy alternative to a beloved confection. Incredibly luxe, and make a fabulous gift.
Chicken Enchiladas - a visually-impressive yet simple meal of enchilada-esque fillings wrapped in a thin round of fried egg. A great one for the kids.
Chicken Liver Paté - a tasty way to enjoy the health benefits of free-range chicken liver that even the kids will like! Perfect served with Sunflower Sesame Crackers. (Image borrowed from RecipeTips.com since my photo doesn't do the recipe justice!)
Chicken with Coconut Curry Coating - a savoury hit, keeping the chicken gorgeously moist, and the coating crisp and tasty!
Choc-Avocado Mousse - my new favourite paleo dessert; it's like creamy chocolate ice-cream, without the dairy and sugar! Rich and scrumptious, and amazing served as a dip for strawberries!
Choc-Berry Pie - a decadent dessert of chocolate, fruit & nuts. Makes one devilishly heavenly breakfast!
Choc-Cherry Tart - the powerful antioxidant punch wrapped in a sweet, individually portioned package of almond crust & chocolaty filling, with cherries nestling inside.
Chocolate Sponge Cake - a ridiculously easy recipe for chocolate sponge, perfect for layered cream/fruit arrangement. Recipe can also be used to make muffin-sized snacks.
Chocolate Zucchini Muffins - a surprising combination of alchemic ingredients create a tasty and convincing baked snack. Try it on your non-primal friends, see if they can pick the difference...
Choco-Nutty Treats - the perfect chocolate craving queller - a healthy snack that satisfies our pleasure centres whilst delivering a healthful dose of coconut oil. Play with different nuts, dried fruits, mint oil, etc for endless variety.
Chunky Chicken Burgers - for when you want something lighter than your normal beef patty.
Coconut Chicken Curry - a nice and easy coconut cream-based curry - rich, tasty, and so satisfying!
Coconut Crusted Salmon - I wanted to add some more crunch and colour to my usual crusted fish fillet - enter, coconut flakes!
Coconut Curry Soup - a creamy, rich soup with enough zing to warm away the Winter chills from mouth to tummy! Perfect as a tasty veggie soup or you can add pretty much any kind of meat for a delicious, well-rounded meal.
Coconut Pancakes - for those with nut sensitivities, pancakes are still possible! Use coconut flour or, even better, make your own by blitzing shredded coconut, which still has the healthy fats in pace, and is much much cheaper! See also: Almond Pancakes.
Corned Beef Silverside & Veggie Gravy - a slight twist on the usual preparation of corned beef, plus a tasty replacement for those awful grain-based sludges they call gravy...
Creamy Coconut Beef Curry - a mild but hearty beef curry, featuring coconut cream for that creamy texture. Quite the saucy dish, this one!
Dips! This post details the recipes of eight delicious recipes for your next party - or even just as a healthy paleo snack! Includes: Chunky Beetroot & Herb Chutney, Nice & Naughty Nightshade Dip, Roast Pumpkin Puree, Refreshing Zucchini & Coriander Dip, Creamy Spinach & Basil Pesto, Anchovy & Olive Paste for Serious Savory Lovers, Smoked Salmon, Onion & Olive Dip, and Prawn Paté. Fabulous served with Sunflower Sesame Crackers.
Feta & Capsicum Mini Frittata - the perfect picnic piece - small in size but big on flavour! (Recipe & image also include Pizza Burgers.)
Fried Chicken Fingers - they look like junk food, they taste like (good) junk food, yet they're all primal, all paleo, and all satisfying!
Frittata (Crustless Quiche) - the basic formula for a tasty, never-fail meal that can be adapted to suit almost any dietary need (unless you don't eat eggs!)
Frittata Lorraine - a quick and easy meal with a classic flavour combination. A reminder of the meals that are part of the conventional Western diet that still follow evolutionary guidelines (with or without cheese involved). Scroll to the end of the post for the recipe.
Fruit 'N' Nut Crumble - probably doesn't need a description, and you can substitute your favourite fruit & nuts into the mix with ease. An always-pleasing favourite for primals & non-primals alike.
Grain-Free Granola (Nola!) - the anti-cereal to fill that cold cereal void.
Update: Check out Nola: The Final Cut for my tried & true, totally grain-free, easy recipe that's now a staple of the beau's diet.
Italian Chicken & Beef Sauté - a warm & hearty stew-esque meal without the long cooking time.
Kanga & Bacon Frittata - a tasty way to enjoy the flavours of kangaroo meat, whilst adding healthy fats back into the meal (roo meat is very lean; what with all the bouncing it all jiggles off).
Kangaroo Balls - another tasty way to enjoy the flavours of kangaroo meat, combining it with egg, herbs, and almond flour for added texture.
Kale Chips - if you find yourself missing potato crisps, or are at a loss as to how to fill that void at an upcoming party, try the unconventional yet truly delicious kale version! Minimal kale taste, and all the crunch of old-skool tayta chips.
Lamb, Basil & Garlic Roll-Ups - tender, tasty lamb backstrap, filled with fresh, intense basil and tangy garlic. A fabulous mini-roast for warmer weather thanks to the shorter cooking time, and always appreciated in the chill of winter!
Lard - it's much tastier if you get free-range pig fat and render it yourself.
Lots'a Layers Lasagne - no pasta involved! A playful mix of veggies and meat, in a stacks-on arrangement, somewhat resembling the appearance a decidedly non-primal favourite, although the taste is quite different!
Meatza! A pizza with a base that's like a hamburger patty, but so much more awesome than that sounds...
Oopsie Pizza - the pizza base of cream cheese and eggs! An adaptation of the recipe on The Wilderness Childe by the lovely Diana Renata.
Pizza Burgers - all the taste of pizza as part of a beef burger patty. Genius! (Recipe & image also include Feta & Capsicum Mini Frittata.)
Pizza Cake - it's not a pizza, it's not a frittata, but it's a piece of cake to make!
Pumpkin Fries - a twist on the typical roast pumpkin recipe, resulting in crispness on the outside, and soft pumpkin goodness on the inside. Also works with sweet potato.
Pumpkin Soup - a delicious mix of spices makes this warm favourite something very special indeed!
Savory Zucchini Slice - I always loved the flexibility of Mum's zucchini slice. The neutral-yet-distinctive flavour, that could be dressed up with honey or maple syrup for dessert, or with some garlic butter as a savory dinner accompaniment. So I've made a primal variation - a new favourite!
Quiche - upping the ante from the oh-so-simple frittata, this dish involves an almond flour crust, and can be adapted to include any additional fillings that you fancy. A visually impressive dish that's great to add to your repertoire.
Spinach & Cashew Pesto - a delicious dose of creamy greens, perfect for dipping, serving atop fish and chicken, or straight from the spoon!
Sunflower Sesame Crackers - the perfect crunchy accompaniment for primal dips and catering for cracker-needy gusts when serving antipasto and cheese at parties. I'm finally rid of the last remaining non-primal item I used to have to buy for dinner parties!!
Tyrolienne Beef & Kidney Stew - if you've ever been keen to try kidney, the stewing element of this recipe allows the organs to absorb a delicious flavour without toughening. An acquired taste/texture, but incredibly nutritious.
Veggie Conucopia - an array of ways to prepare veggies that may be a little different to your standard dishes. (Recipe & image also include Caveman Chicken, a delicious chicken preparation and tangy/nutty sauce that will blow your mind!)
Warm Beet Medley Salad - a wonderfully tangy and colourfully presented mix of cooked vegetables, with a surprising topping. The perfect accompaniment to Baked Trout (part of same post).
White Fish Fingers - I'm not a fan of white fish, or any fish that tastes 'fishy', if you know what I mean. Solution? Herbs, spices, and coconut oil!
