Five Spice Paleo Noodles

Using this wonderful device and the colorful veg, we can make a dish that’s as beautiful as it is tasty. The five spice powder adds a wonderful kick to these noodles. If you want a little more, and why wouldn’t you… just double up the portion and make this a main dish.

Nutty Broccoli, with a Mustard Kick

Vibrant greens with a little punch and a sweet crunch. Nutty Broccoli is one of those sides that looks and tastes amazing with a simple meal or as part of a banquet table. I love to put this out for the family at Thanksgiving, Christmas or just on a weekday evening. I enjoy broccoli with some bite to it, so don’t overdo the steaming/boiling of the florets at the start, plus the green color when its cooked just right really brightens up any dish.

Ingredients
  

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Almond Milk
  • 2 tsp Apple cider vinegar Organic from the "mother'
  • 1 tsp Local Raw Honey or sweetener of choice
  • 2 tsp Coconut Oil

Dry Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp Ground Flax Seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups Almond Flour
  • 1/2 cup Arrowroot starch
  • 1 tbsp Psyllium Husk Powder
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 1-2 tbsp Water if needed

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Line a loaf pan or baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Combine all the wet ingredients into a bowl
  • Add the 4 tbsp of ground flax seed to the wet ingredients and allow to sit for 5 minutes
  • While the wet ingredients are being absorbed by the ground flax seed, combine the remainder of the dry ingredients into a separate bowl
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and thoroughly combine. If the dough is dry add 1 tbsp of water at a time until it holds together. You don't want it to be too sticky. I typically only need 1 tbsp of water.
  • Make a ball with the dough and either spread into a loaf plan or create a rounded mini loaf by flatting out the ball slightly
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees or until golden and a toothpick when inserted comes out clean
  • Remove and cool...if you can and ENJOY!

Vegan Lemon Cheesecake Bites

Bite sized lemony treats with an authentic baked cheesecake texture. You can make as per this recipe, or simply cut more traditionally into cake shaped slices/wedges for a dessert serving. The toppings are optional. Pictured here with our homemade paleo chocolate, a fruit coulis would make this a wonderful summer experience, or try with some coconut whipped cream for extra indulgence.

Lentil Soup (Dal)

Lentil Soup (Dal)

This Lentil soup is a modified version from cookeandkate.com. It's now "nightshade free" and increase the healthy fats. Yes, I said INCREASE the healthy fats. If nightshades aren't an issue for you, feel free to cut the amount of carrots in half, add some roasted tomatoes and turn up the heat with some red pepper flakes.  Of course, if you still want a bit of heat without impacting inflammation, you can add a bit of shredded horseradish.
