Real food with vegetables for breakfast.

Hash browns, I love them, but according to some, white potatoes are not Paleo.  I have my own thoughts on that, but they are a night shade and those tend to cause me issues, some more than others.  I wanted something, not a sweet potato to try instead.  Spaghetti squash to the rescue, again!  I will have to say I was very happy with my results.  They were not at formed as the potato, but they worked and what I cooked them with made them taste awesome!  I will try and tweek them out a little more to see if there is a way to help them keep their form better.  Maybe using the dehydrated spaghetti squash would work better. 

I made the “hash browns” to go with my eggs and bacon.

Ingredients

1 cup cooked spaghetti squash

2 shallots chopped

1/2 tsp garlic ( I love garlic)

salt and pepper to taste

bacon grease to cook with

melt bacon grease in a pan, add chopped shallots, cook until just tender.  Add chopped spaghetti squash,garlic,salt and pepper.  Cook until browned.

They do try and fall apart when you put them on the plate, but they are darn tasty!!

If you try these and are able to keep them from falling apart let me know how you did it. If you try them and just want to let me know what you thought, please do.  All comments welcome, I love feed back!

Paleo Chicken pot pie soup, OMG!!!! Love at first bite

chicken pot pie soup

I had seen a recipe for a very tasty sounding soup, the problem was it was a SAD recipe. I decided right then to make it Paleo/Primal and the kitchen chemistry began. What I ended up making is something I will make over and over again! I am very happy with my results and hope you enjoy it as much as my DH, poor next door neighbor and I did. This is a dairy,grain, tuber and night shade free recipe. I will call it Chicken pot pie soup.
Ingredients
1 small head of cauliflower
1 large parsnip
1/2 pound of fresh green beans
3 carrots
1 stalk of celery
1/3 of a small red onion
2 Portabello mushrooms
1 can of full fat coconut milk
1 TBS chopped fresh thyme
1/8 tsp garlic granules
1 pound cooked chicken chopped
4 cups chicken bone broth
fresh ground black pepper and sea salt to taste
Rice your cauliflower in the food processor and cook until tender. Puree cooked cauliflower with a little of the coconut milk set aside.
Dice all of your vegetables into small pieces and put into a large soup pot. Add your chicken broth, chopped thyme and bring to a boil, continue to simmer on lower heat until all vegetables are tender. Add diced cooked chicken and heat thoroughly. Add pureed cauliflower, coconut milk and garlic stir very well. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes to reduce and thicken sauce, add salt and pepper to taste.

To make it seem more pot pie like, you could put it in a oven proof bowl and add more pureed cauliflower on top and bake until it browns a little. Please let me know if you make this and how it turns out for you.  Comments are welcome and encouraged!
