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...

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...

Posh ‘Chip Shop’ Chips and Curry Sauce

One of the strangest dishes I’ve seen in a British chip shop is the mess that is chips and curry sauce. It never looks appetising to me, but rather a blob of chunky fries covered in a gloop of neon yellow curry sauce. I understand it’s a staple of the after drinking walk home from the pub. When I came home from the supermarket the other day with a really ugly celeriac (also known as celery root), I thought that they would...

Cheesy Flax Flatbread and Calcot spread

To follow on from my Very British Scotch Eggs, I decided to tackle the very Catalan calcot sauce. Traditionally, this is a romesco type sauce made with ground almonds, hazelnuts, breadcrumbs, garlic, tomato and roast peppers. They have competitions to make the best and, in true catalan style, the best are made from scratch using freshly roasted tomatoes and peppers and lovingly combines with a mortar and pestle. It’s served with...

Pancetta Wrapped Balsamic Beans

In lieu of shopping for my meat in supermarkets, I’ve taken to always buying fresh from the local butchers. Unfortunately, it means that if I’m busy, I don’t get the chance to go into town to shop. Which means, if I’m not organized, by wednesday, I have nothing in the house to cook, unless I have leftovers. So today, I stared into the fridge for a while before figuring out this. I like to have protein and...

Purple Roasted Cauliflower

This is a bit lazy as far as recipes go. But I couldn’t resist posting it cause it was purple cauliflower. PURPLE! Which, according to Wikipedia, “The purple color in this cauliflower is caused by the presence of the antioxidant group anthocyanins, which can also be found in red cabbage and red wine.” So wow. Bonus. I just thought it was pretty. You can use regular cauliflower, it’s just the colour that is...

Caulisalsa

I gotta work on my recipe naming abilities. Seriously? Caulisalsa? Ah well. There’s no feta in this recipe! Nor bacon! In fact, it’s actually, shhhhh, vegetarian! Wha….!? I am a bit of a fan of cauliflower, it has to be said. My mother used to make the best cauliflower soup when I was young. I mean, she was a great cook anyway – but I was particularly keen on the cauliflower soup. I attribute my love of cooking...

Baked beets n feta

I appear to be on a bit of a feta kick at the moment. I blame the fact that at the supermarket the other day, I encountered a ONE KILO tin of feta cheese. A whole KILO of salty, crumbly goodness. So easy to use in the summer, with salads galore. But in the winter? And no, cheese isn’t ‘paleo’ per se, but it IS primal. So all depends on how strict you want to be, I suppose! A veggie friend of mine cooked something...
