Print Baked Egg in Squash with Bacon Rating: 51 Ingredients 1 medium delicata squash 1 green onion, diced 2 tablespoons Vegan Cream Cheese, or goat cheese 1 tablespoon teaspoons cooked bacon 2 large eggs Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Is it really possible to bake a pie with no pre-made crust? Yes it is! This is a deeeelicious, gluten-free, Paleo quiche you can make in just one step. When it bakes, there’s a magical crust on the bottom, sides, and top. The crust is created by layering the ingredients: coconut butter, cooked meat, onions, veggies, and pour the batter on top. Then bake, and presto! Your delicious pie is ready. Vary the recipe 1,000 ways – add your favorite veggies, leftover diced meat, and it always comes out yummy! This recipe is adapted from my Mom’s “Impossible Quiche”, her
I love authentic “carbonara”, but it’s loaded with carbs, which cause me to gain weight. THIS delicious Paleo version is super-low-carb! Zucchini noodles are the key to an easy meal. I left the table feeling satisfied, not stuffed. Traditional Italian “carbonara” is made with raw eggs cooked on contact by boiling hot spaghetti. I didn’t want to boil delicate zucchini noodles, as they’d fall apart. I could steam them, but wasn’t sure they’d be hot enough to cook the eggs on contact, and some people worry about eating raw eggs (However, I enjoy raw organic pasture-raised eggs all the time!).
Today I discovered fresh organic peas in the market! When I’m in Italy, fresh peas in the pod are a sign that spring is exploding. Everyone runs home to make this risotto, called “Risi e Bisi” in Venetian dialect, or “Rice with Peas”. However you won’t find this yummy cauliflower risotto in Italy! It is Paleo, Vegan, free of gluten, grains, and dairy. Traditional Italian risotto must be stirred continuously for 20 minutes to give the rice a thick, creamy texture. Then just before serving, you add tons of butter and Parmesan cheese! To mimic that creamy Parmesan quality Paleo-style,
This is by far the best meatloaf I’ve ever tasted! My Mom’s meatloaf holds a place near and dear to my heart. But this tastes even better! Plus it’s Paleo, gluten-free and grain-free, made without the usual fillers and prepared sauces. This recipe works equally well with ground beef, lamb, buffalo, or turkey. And it’s so easy to make! I don’t often use coconut flour, but in meatloaf it’s perfect – it absorbs liquid as it bakes, for a firm texture that’s easy to slice. This primal meatloaf uses either Paleo Ketchup, No-Tomato Ketchup, your favorite ketchup, or tomato sauce.
An authentic Italian risotto, re-invented Paleo style, means it has a wonderful broth, and rich, deep flavor of Parmesan cheese. I was planning a cauliflower risotto for you today. But someone in the family cooked up a batch of sprouted quinoa that has to be used. Wow! It tastes incredibly delicious and so easy! You can make this recipe with EITHER quinoa or riced cauliflower. I should warn you that the Paleo Police are on the fence about quinoa. Technically, quinoa is neither a grain or a grass – it is related to Swiss chard, spinach and beets, however some
I created this recipe by accident, and it has become my absolute favorite “cheese” for Vegan Pizza and Paleo Pizza. We DO want cheese on our pizza! It slices beautifully, and uses pure coconut instead of dairy. While it’s not an exact duplicate of the taste, it’s so close that when you serve it, the enthusiasm takes center stage and no one notices it’s not cheese. This recipe is also free of soy, gmo, and stabilizers or thickeners like so many “Vegan” cheeses. You’ll need a good blender and a bit of patience, but the reward is definitely worth it!.
This is my favorite turkey recipe in the world! BTW, Turkey Tetrazzini is NOT Italian. It was invented by the famous soprano Luisa Tetrazzini. She asked for creamed turkey over spaghetti with Parmeggiano Reggiano, and she got it! She lived at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, where the chef prepared it for her. Madame Tetrazzini was 100% Italian, and a feisty lady too! Read a bit of her story below. This holiday, I decided I NEED Turkey Tetrazzini, and I wanted to make it Paleo, meaning no pasta, no dairy, and wild! The farmer’s market had an organic pasture-raised turkey.
Today I was in the mood for my favorite comfort food – Macaroni and Cheese! Rich and satisfying, this recipe is 100% free of gluten, grains, dairy, and eggs. Instead of pasta it uses zucchini, which has a mild flavor and absorbs the “cheese sauce” beautifully. The thick “cheese sauce” is made with blended coconut milk, coconut butter, nutritional yeast and lemon, plus optional Vitamin C crystals for a “sharp cheese” flavor. Now I can enjoy my favorite comfort food in a healthy form and it tastes yummilicious! This vegan mac and cheese is super easy to make – just
Chicken Pot Pie has been my favorite since I was a little girl. This is an easy Paleo Pie baked in a skillet with a top crust only. The delicious crispy crust is gluten-free, grain-free, and low-carb. However it rolls out so easily and tastes so rich, you’d never guess it’s special. The filling is cramy and aromatic with basil, sage and a hint of cumin. Quick to make, you just sauté everything in the skillet on the stove, add the crust, and bake. Serves 6. Print Paleo Chicken Pot Pie Ingredients Equipment needed: A food processor, a large oven-proof skillet. I
How shall I describe this pie? It has a rich, satisfying flavor that is zesty with “cheese” and garlic crust. It is chock full of vegetables in a luscious meat gravy. Shepherd’s Pie is a traditional Irish meat pie with mashed potatoes. It became popular around 1880 when potatoes, a New World food, were first accepted. I love garlic mashed potatoes with cheese! But potatoes are high in carbs, low in nutrients, and part of the nightshade family, a common allergen. So instead of potatoes, this Paleo recipe uses mashed cauliflower. While loaded with healthy nutrients, I find cauliflower quite bland, so I added
I just discovered an easy breakfast or snack everyone loves. It’s a flexible one-dish meal, bag lunch, or finger food for holiday parties, picnics and travel. Like an omlet in a muffin, it’s chock full of vegetables, and high in protein too. Kids love to eat them with their hands – no need for a fork. They’re delicious cold or at room temperature. I use dairy-free Vegan Parmesan Cheese. It’s quick to make and store in the freezer, however you can substitute your favorite cheese, or skip it. I’ve found the best eggs are fresh from a friend with chickens, or organic pasture-raised – see my post The Best
My friends go crazy for this amazing lasagna. With its rich layers and luscious flavors, every bite transports me to Italy. However I can’t eat wheat pasta, Parmesan cheese, ricotta or tomatoes. So this recipe uses zucchini noodles, Vegan Ricotta filling, Vegan Parmesan Cheese, and No-Tomato Sauce. Or you can use your favorite tomato sauce. My friends prefer this Paleo Lasagna to the standard recipe because of it’s rich Italian flavor – so authentic no one believes it is alternative. I prepare the Vegan Parmesan Cheese and No-Tomato Sauce ahead of time and freeze them. Tomatoes are a member of the nightshade family,
Coconut Chicken Curry is a favorite Asian dish, and every chef has her own version. The traditional Thai recipe uses peanut sauce. However peanuts are a common allergen, and as a legume they are not part of the Paleo diet. Instead, this recipe uses sunflower butter, which gives it an exotic, rich taste. This curry is super-easy to make, with a tantalizing blend of flavors depending on the curry powder you choose. Traditional Asians blend their own curry powders, and there are a million variations, however most of them contain red pepper, a nightshade. If you’re like so many that are allergic to nightshades, check out my easy recipe for Nightshade-Free
