In fact it’s the perfect mid-week meal for all the family. Prep time: 15 minutes. Cook time: 10 minutes Serves 4 Ingredients 1 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil…

Paleo Beef Curry

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post. Did you miss me? 🙂 The reason for my absence, is because I’m working on a new project at home (more of that in future posts). As a result, I’ve simply not had the time, or energy, to photograph and write about all the grub-tastic…

Pistachio-Crusted Salmon

Another great dish for a dinner party. Choose wild salmon fillets from your fishmonger. You can’t beat the taste, and they’ll be much bigger than those you’ll find in the supermarket. The pistachio crust can be prepared the night before. Just cover the dish with clingfilm and pop it in the fridge overnight. NB. Shelled…

Pork Chops with Balsamic Glaze

Another incredibly easy dish which can be prepared the night before. This works well served with lots of vegetables. I chose marsh samphire as I’d bought a huge bag of it from my local grocery store. I also used it in the salmon dish yesterday. Serves 4 Prep: 15 minutes. Cooking: 20 minutes 4 boneless…

Orange-Rosemary Seared Salmon

If my taste buds could talk, they’d be screaming “Yay! It’s summer!” I’m not joking! This dish is perfect for this time of year and it’s so quick and easy. It’s packed full of goodness and flavour too. My family tell me it’s like eating in a restaurant, it’s so grub-tastic! They’re biased I know,…

Paleo Homemade BBQ Sauce

My family say this is the best BBQ sauce they have ever tasted. High praise indeed! And best of all, you can enjoy this knowing that it’s completely free of preservatives or refined sugars. Make this in bulk, bottle it up, and store in the fridge for up to one month! Serves 4 Ingredients 355…

Dried Fuit & Nut Balls

These yummy little dried fruit and nut balls are packed full of nutrients and fibre. Great for your lunch box or for taking on a picnic. Use whatever dried fruit and nuts you have in your store cupboard, but I recommend using Medjool dates and dried apricots as their gooey texture holds the ingredients together…

Roast Leg of Lamb & Vegetables

Leg of lamb is one of my favourite things in the world to eat. It’s so easy and doesn’t take long to cook either. I came across a lovely recipe for roasted leg of lamb on the wonderful Enjoying This Journey, a couple of days ago and decided to do something similar. I happened to…

When Is A Banana Not A Banana?

Answer: When it’s a plantain! Bet you knew that already didn’t you? Clever thing you! And if you don’t already know, a plantain, or cooking plantain, is one of the less sweet cultivated varieties of the genus Musa whose fruit is also known as a banana. The thing is, I’m finding new and interesting things…

Roasted Cod Fishcakes

First of all let me tell you these didn’t start out as fishcakes! There’s no point in pretending. They were supposed to be whole cod fillets, roasted with garlic but here’s what happened . . . . . I bought some fresh cod fillets from my local fishmonger. They came with the skin on, plus…

Paleo Hummus

Cashew nuts are a great alternative to using chickpeas in this hummus recipe. It will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days and freezes for up to 3 months. Ingredients 3 medium courgettes, peeled and chopped 100g plain cashew nuts 8 tbsp tahini 8 tbsp olive oil 2 lemons, juiced (use juice of…

Smoky Roast Chicken with Sweet Potato Wedges

This dish is a firm family favourite. In fact we love it SO much, that we’d be happy to substitute the turkey dinner for this on Christmas Day. Let’s just say that it’s SO good, that you’ll want to make it every weekend! I should mention that this recipe is adapted from a book called…
