  • Fall Vegetables and Paleo Soups and Stews

    I focus on eating seasonally and getting my fruits and vegetables as local and fresh as possible. The fruit season has passed and now its time to harvest those wonderful fall vegetables - Endives, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Pumpkins, Spinach and Zucchini. I love the fall and look forward to making some great Paleo stews and soups. My base is usually pastured beef and bacon sauteed in coconut oil with onions, garlic and jalapenos, then into the big pot with some red wine and whatever vegetables I can lay my hands on to slow cook. The aroma that permeates the house is amazing, especially on those cool fall evenings. The great thing is you can make up a large batch and have it for the next week of dinners (or lunch or breakfast!)

    Does anyone else do this and perhaps you could share some recipes. Happy eating everyone!

    Pumpkin soup. Pumpkin (organic, but canned), butter, cream, curry powder. I just play 'til it tastes right. I've used chicken stock to thin it if it needs it.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

      Sounds great! Think I'll give it a try.

          Irish stew: Family reicipie, very simple but totally reliable and foolproof

          Chucksteak / beefskirt
          Good quality beef stock (ideally bone broth)
          Mixture of winter veg - carrots / potatoes / swede / parsnip (whatever your preference)
          Celery
          Parsley, thyme, rosemary
          Splash of red wine
          Dash of worcester sauce
          Salt / pepper
          Optional (large spoonful of butter)

          1) Cut the meat into chunks and boil in water - scrape of any scum that forms on the top

          2) Chop half of the potatoes and add to the meat with the chopped veg (not the celery yet), the bone broth and half of the herbs finely chopped

          3) Boil until the potato begins to soften and can be broken down in the stew as a thickener.

          4) Add in the rest of the potato plus the chopped celery, wine, worcester sauce and any other personal preference ingredients (I don't use any but you can add a little cumin or garam masala for an interesting twist)
          Simmer until the meat becomes tender and stew is a nice consistency (varying times needed for this depending on size of stew) Toward the end add in the rest of the herbs and season to taste. For extra richness, stir in some butter!

          I also do this with a leg of lamb - so I roast a leg of lamb, then make a stew with the leftover meat and bone - using all the same ingredients.

            Picadillo-

            brown some ground beef and saute garlic (or use garlic powder)

            in a pot/pan/dutch oven- add:

            tomato sauce (8 oz for every 1 lb of beef)
            chopped onion
            bell peppers
            chopped green olives
            diced potatoes
            little water
            little olive oil

            Season with cumin (cumin is a must in this dish), black pepper, oregano, and salt. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Serve with rice or alone. Cuban picadillo also has raisins, but I leave them out.

              Done this today for lunch.

              But roasted b squash wedges . No skin . Also no onion .
              Once roasted in blender added ginger garlic salt pepper , then added stock to thickness I wanted .

              Also with the peeled skin .
              It's perfect to make a crisp.

              Oil salt pepper & roast for 15 mins be careful they do catch a little but you want them crispy

                I love this stuff when theres a chill in the air. Sometimes I'll add some hot peppers to spice it up a little.

                  Just threw a stew together tonight that turned out so well...

                  Chopped an onion and four cloves garlic, browned in a pot with some coconut oil. Threw in 2lbs ground pork, browned it as well. Added a jar of bone broth, a cubed turnip, parsnip, half a red kuri squash (was new at the store, thought I'd give it a try). Topped up the pot with some chicken broth I had open in the fridge. Seasoned with sage, paprika, ginger, cinnamon, salt and black pepper. Brought to a simmer, added torn leaves from 2 stalks of kale. Simmer till it's all softened, season a bit more to taste. So easy, and so good
