Coughetti and Curried Meatballs

Apologies for the radio silence. I’ve been keeping my instagram up-to-date but haven’t put up many new recipes as I’ve been eating pretty simply for a few months. I’ve also been eating an awful lot of courghetti – otherwise known as spiralized zucchini. My spiralizer is simply my favourite kitchen gadget! You can just make the meatballs, obviously. They make a great snack! Ingredients 500g ground pork 1...

Slow Cooker Bacon Enhanced Carnitas

I’ve read about carnitas a lot. They always look delicious but for some reason, finding ‘pork shoulder’ here in Spain isn’t easy. I’ve ordered it before from the butchers, but usually I’m not that organised to order something from the butchers. But when I saw Mark Sisson’s Crispy Carnitas, I couldn’t resist to attempt my own version. Yes, I based it on his recipe – but with a...

Paleo Gluten-free Pork, Cranberry, and Apple stuffing

  Stuffing is one of my favourite parts of the Christmas dinner. Luckily, I forget about stuffing the rest of the year. However, it’s a must for Christmas. Traditionally, stuffing includes bread, but I’ve managed to create a paleo version using cauliflower. (Cauliflower is great for everything!) So this is my version of a ‘you almost can’t tell the difference’ stuffing. My father even had seconds, so...

Gluten-free Lasagna

It’s not your traditional lasagna, whatever that is. At least, it doesn’t have any pasta noodles in it. Or béchamel sauce. But it doesn’t suffer without that! I used ricotta cheese instead of béchamel. And leeks instead of pasta. Yep. Leeks. Ingredients 600g ground beef 1 red onion chopped (about 90g) 2 small carrots, diced (about 100g) 2 celery stalks, diced (about 50g) 3 garlic cloves 1 tin of peeled tomatoes or...

Sugar-free Paleo Bacon

There are quite a few recipes for making your own bacon on the internet. A lot of them involve sugar. Some of them don’t. A lot of them have ingredients that I can’t get here in Spain. So on my third attempt at making bacon, I decided to go with my own collection of spices, and leave out the sugar or maple syrup as well. And you know what – it works! I know it looks like a lot of ingredients, but they are all spices...

Peanut Butter and Jelly Muffins from TGIPaleo

(Without peanut butter, obviously!) So this recipe came up on my feed the other day and seeing as I seem to have a stock of coconut flour in my cupboard, lovely smuggled in from the UK recently, I thought I’d give them a go. I started cooking, with the intention of following the recipe to the T. But that never happens. I realised, quite quickly, that I had no applesauce. I quickly peeled and chopped two apples and cooked them...

Primal Pistachio Pesto ‘Pasta’

It’s not quite ‘pesto’ as there’s no basil or pine nuts. Then again, it’s not really pasta either!
