Re: Paleo Recipes

I wanted to second Michael's recommendation. Made the Chicken and Shrimp soup the other night and it was awesome. I couldn't stop eating it. Only adjustment I would make is to cook it with less broth, but I'm not a huge soup person, so I don't eat most of the broth with anything.

Re: Paleo Recipes

This is another great recipe I eat pretty regularly (wfs)

I just use canned salmon in mine. I've made it with both kinds and can't really tell the difference. I can however tell a difference between red and pink canned salmon, the red is better.

Re: Paleo Recipes

Many years ago I created a website of recipes. I organized it like a cookbook. It is at:

Re: Paleo Recipes

These are my favorite cookbooks, because they contain traditional cooking methods and are very much what my great-grandparents would have taught me about food:

Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon
Almost seven hundred pages of mostly-paleo knowledge. It's more like an education than a cookbook.

and The Hungarian Cookbook by Susan Derecskey (just ignore all the recipes for noodles and dumplings.)
Jellied Pork Kocsonya: "The pig is surely the most economical farm animal: it eats virtually anything, and when it is butchered and dressed, almost the entire animal can be used for food. What isn't cooked or smoked or seasoned for sausage is thrown into the kocsonya pot to make a light and nourishing dish of jellied meats. It is even, by Hungarian standards, low-fat." You simmer a pig's ear, tail, jowl, foot, and knuckle gently for an hour, then add salt, peppercorns, paprika, onions, and garlic. Skim off the fat, pour the broth over the good bits of meat and let set. Eat cold.

These cookbooks both have recipes for basic stock. These can be used as a base for any soup, or boiled until mostly evaporated and used as a base for fabulous sauces. This recipe a traditional clear chicken soup, and a staple for my family.

Chicken Soup Ujhazy Tyukleves

3-pound chicken, split or quartered
1 pound chicken wings or backs and necks
2 carrots
2 parsnips or white turnips
2 small kohlrabies and 1 leek, if available
1 medium onion
2 leafy halves of celery stalks
2 sprigs of parsley
1 clove garlic (I use far more)
6 peppercorns
1 T salt
skip the dumplings
skip the noodles
1/4 pound thinly sliced mushrooms
Eggs, 1 per person

Wash and clean the pieces of chicken and place them in a large heavy-bottomed pot. Clean the vegetables thoroughly, (barely) cut up the carrots, parsnips or turnips, and kohlrabies, and lay them with the leek, onion, celery, and parsley on top of the chicken. Add the garlic, peppercorns, and salt, and enough cold water to cover everything. Slowly bring to the simmer, [skim off the skum until it stops forming], then cover partially, and simmer until the chicken is tender - about 1 to 2 hours. Place a sieve in a large bowl and pour the soup through. Set the broth aside and let it cool. Discard the celery, parsley, garlic, and peppercorns as well as any loose chicken bones or skin. Cut up the remaining vegetables and pieces of meat. Degrease the broth [when it cools, the fat will all come to the surface and can be scooped up] and correct the seasoning. Return the vegetables and meat to the broth, and bring it slowly back to the simmer.... If you are serving eggs with the soup, add them to the broth for poaching. [This works better with fresh eggs, layed today, older eggs are thinner and spread more.] When they are done (about 3 minutes) place them in the side dish. Pour the soup into a large tureen and carefully float the eggs on top.

Re: Paleo Recipes

New recipes up at (WFS)

Here is one of them...
Paleo Pumpkin Pancakes with Warm Blueberry Sauce (Makes 1 Serving)

Pancake Ingredients:
1 whole egg
4 egg whites
1 tbsp almond butter
1/2 cup pumpkin
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla

Sauce Ingredients:
1 cup fresh blueberries

1. Combine all ingredients, except blueberries, in a large bowl. Beat with a fork or mix with a whisk.
2. Heat skillet to medium-high heat.
3. Start adding mixture to skillet as you would normal pancakes. (It makes about 9 small/thin pancakes, but if you want them thicker, make about 3 large ones).
4. Once bubbles form on top and there is no more liquid, flip over. (Takes about 2 minutes max!)
5. For sauce: put blueberries in microwaveable bowl for 40 seconds. (If you aren't a blueberry fan, just add some fruit on the side).
6. Spoon blueberries on top of pancakes and top with a little cinnamon. Eat and enjoy!

Re: Paleo Recipes

I used to do chicken fingers with pork grinds, but this is infinitely tastier!!!

Recipe: Fried Chicken Fingers


1-2 chicken breasts
1-2 eggs, beaten in a bowl
1/2 almond flour
1t smoked paprika
1t cayanne pepper
1t oregano
1t garlic powder
... or your preferred herbs and spices
Optional salt & pepper
1/2 cup coconut oil

1. Heat oil in a solid (ceramic or cast iron) frying pan over low heat.
2. Slice chicken into long strips, about 1/2" thick.
3. Place strips in bowl of beaten egg, and toss with hands until coated.
4. In a wide bowl or plate, mix almond flour, herbs and spices.
(I split them up into three separate bowls)
5. Dip chicken strips in coating mixture, individually.
6. Place strips in pan, being careful of splashing oil. Fry until browned, then flip and fry until chicken is cooked through.

They're pretty awesome.
