Since we released our favorite Paleo Pasta Recipes last week, I thought it only appropriate to follow up with this list of great Paleo Meatball Recipes as well! What stood out to me though, was that many of these recipes are not totally necessary as a pasta topper –they are amazing as a standalone dish, meaty starter, or take-away poppers for lunchtime or a snack on a long commute.
Liver is a really nutritious Paleo food, and pate is a great way to get more liver into your diet – it’s flavorful and easy to make. It’s great for spreading onto some Paleo crackers (recipe also in Simone’s book!), or if you’re too lazy to make Paleo crackers (like me), you can just eat it straight! It’s also very filling.
If you’ve read some of my other liver recipes, then you’ll know that I’ve been trying to find a way to make liver delicious even for people (like my husband) who dislike the taste of liver.
So, here’s another one – this time with oranges. The orange flavor, along with the cinnamon, really helps to cover the taste of liver!
Jeremy’s response to the dish: “This may be your best one yet!”
Liver has never been top of my favorite foods list!
And it most definitely isn’t top of Jeremy’s list. But, it is one of the most nutrient-dense foods around, and we try to eat it when possible.
To help us eat it more frequently, I’ve been experimenting on making liver taste more delicious (i.e., less like liver!). I hope one day to appreciate the taste of liver by itself, but for now, masking the liver taste is crucial for us.
Liver is so good for us, but the taste even gets me sometimes! So I sneak them into things, and burgers are great candidates. Then you add some great spices to cover it up even more. Of course, if you love the taste of liver, then there’s no need to do any of this!
I’ve been making this chili forever now, and it’s about high time I shared it with everyone. I like to tweak the recipe a little each time I make it, and this is the raspberry liver variation. And the best part is that everything just goes into the crockpot, and 8 hours later it’s delicious! I like to make a large batch to eat for several days, but you can of course scale the recipe down (also make sure your crockpot can hold so much meat – I use this 6-quart one from Amazon).
