Refreshing Mint Cucumber Melon Soup Recipe

REFRESHING mint cucumber melon soup

I got a Thermomix over a year ago as a wedding gift from some family in Vancouver, and I’ve only just opened the box to use it!

Quite a few readers have emailed me about recipes using the Thermomix as well (if you are in the US, then you probably haven’t come across the Thermomix so read below to find out about it, but it’s become very popular in Australia, Germany, Canada, and Taiwan among other places).

I’ve got quite a lot of kitchen equipment, and so I wasn’t sure what the Thermomix would add. I was quite wrong apparently, and I found it fantastic to use to make soups (although if you have a Vitamix or Blendtec, then those work just as well for this purpose).  The blender is very powerful and making soups and mash is easy with this.

How To Microwave Spaghetti Squash

How To Microwave Spaghetti Squash

Spaghetti squash is a fantastic grain-free noodle that’s super easy to cook. I love sloshing some Paleo sloppy joes on top of spaghetti squash.

What is Spaghetti Squash

According to Wikipedia, “spaghetti squash (Cucurbita pepo var. fastigata) (also called vegetable spaghetti, noodle squash, vegetable marrow, spaghetti marrow, and squaghetti) is an oblong seed-bearing variety of winter squash.”

There are seeds in the middle (which you can roast to eat as a nice Paleo snack) and the “meat” of the squash is hard when raw (like all other squash), but falls apart into spaghetti-like strands.

Paleo Tuna Casserole Recipe [Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, Dairy-Free]

paleo tuna casserole

A reader emailed me a few months ago asking for a Paleo tuna casserole recipe, and I realized that I had zero idea what that was, having not grown up in the US!

What is Tuna Casserole

For those of you that also never had tuna casserole before, Wikipedia describes it as “a casserole mainly composed of egg noodles (or some other starch such as rice) and canned tuna fish, with canned peas and corn sometimes added,” and topped with something crunchy like potato chips.

What is “no-grola”? Well… “no-grola” is my take on granola – No-“Grain”-ola. This is a Paleo version of granola that doesn’t consist of grains, gluten, dairy, soy, artificial sweeteners, etc. What is does have is healthy fats, tasty spices, protein and a great Hawaiian flavor! It is great served with fruit, dairy-free yogurt, or with a little almond milk!

Easy Paleo Roasted Vegetables Recipe

easy paleo roasted vegetables

I picked up a variety of mini and baby vegetables from Costco the other day – baby squash, mini peppers and little tomatoes. They turned out to be fantastic when roasted in the oven with olive oil and salt.  They taste great right out of the oven or even cold.

If finding these mini/baby vegetables is tough, you can just use regular Italian squash and regular bell peppers chopped into chunks.

Then just before serving, I like to sprinkle some freshly chopped basil leaves on top for extra flavor.

Super Easy Paleo Sloppy Joes Recipe

super easy paleo sloppy joe recipe

This Paleo sloppy joes recipe is so easy and delicious! I like to make a huge batch of this (double the recipe below) and keep it in large containers in the fridge to eat during the week.

It’s very versatile – you can eat this easy Paleo sloppy joes by itself, top it on microwave Paleo bread (it takes 5 minutes to make), or my favorite is to top it on this root vegetable mash (a trick I picked up from eating at a ton of times at my favorite NYC Paleo restaurant, Hu Kitchen).

My dad, who’s diabetic, tops Paleo sloppy joes on a bowl of easy bacon brussels sprouts – he loves it!
