A luscious and authentic Southwest dinner – Paleo style, this tastes even better than the original Tex-Mex version. I made it for a potluck dinner, and it vanished. However no one could believe it is gluten-free, grain-free, corn-free, and cheese-free.

Liver Venetian Style “Fegato alla Veneziana”

Liver is more than a seasonal delicacy. It is one of Nature’s most potent superfoods! This pate tastes rich and creamy, much like traditional pâté de foi gras. The main difference is you can make it in 15 minutes or less. I wanted a way to prepare liver with minimal cooking

Today I was in the mood for authentic Paella with rich spices and exotic saffron sauce! This cauliflower version is easy, Paleo, grain-free, and extremely low in carbs. Traditional Spanish Paella is usually made with rice, chicken, meat, seafood, and saffron. It makes a fantastic special dinner – see my step by step photos below.

Paleo Turkey Tetrazzini

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.

Turkey Curry Stew with Pumpkin

This is a rich and satisfying stew with an exotic twist. It is inspired by Asian peanut-curry, but instead of peanuts it uses almond butter and toasted almonds as a garnish – Yummy! (Peanuts are legumes high in molds and not on the Paleo diet.) I served it in bowls without rice or noodles, so it is a high nutrient meal that’s also lower in carbs. This is a very flexible recipe that you can change as you like. It is also delicious with chicken or your choice of meat. Serves 6. Print Turkey Curry Stew with Pumpkin Rating: 51
