Bone broth is excellent for making soups, stews, sauces, and sautés. If you are on a paleo or AIP diet, bone broth is often recommended for sipping in between meals for extra nutrition.
Homemade vinaigrette is so much more flavorful than either bottled or packaged. The one downside is that you need to shake it up every time you pour it. Pre-packaged dressings have added emulsifiers to make the ingredients “stick together.” But I prefer to not consume chemicals with my food so I’m OK with shaking the bottle once in a while!
This is a variation on my original recipe, this time using fresh lemon juice instead of vinegar, going lighter on the seasonings, and adding cilantro and parsley to the mix. Continue reading “Lemon Cilantro Vinaigrette”
Here’s another recipe from Cooking Light magazine, which I adapted to make even healthier. The original recipe used pork but I made it vegetarian by using chickpeas instead. I also swapped out the regular dairy milk and used light coconut milk, and swapped the white flour to millet flour, although it would probably be just fine without any flour at all. I added garam masala and increased the amount of curry powder because the original was bland. I think the result is a really nice vegan meal. Having pre-cooked rice and chickpeas on hand makes it a super-fast weeknight meal. Continue reading “Curried Chickpeas with Rice”
As soon as I get a chance to post my photos of the actual food, I will. Hopefully by this weekend. We are using a pot roast slow cooker sauce to make stew. The main difference is using cut up beef instead of the whole slab that you then have to slice before serving. I like the stew better because the meat takes on more of the flavor of the sauce.
