  • What are you favourite Primal Blueprint Cookbook recipes?

    I'm not really into lavish food, prefer simple, filling food with a bit of taste so not too bland - hence wondered if this book is suitable, or is it aimed more at the foodie types, who like elaborate dishes?

    What are your favourite dishes from this book - and have any become firm favourites that you tend to do quite a bit? And would you recommend this for us Brits? (availability of ingredients etc)

    I love the walnut brownies, maybe a little too much. No one else in my house will eat them, so if I bake a batch, I can't let them go to waste.

    The Moroccan chicken is excellent, and my entire family liked it.

      Thanks John - I like Moroccan food so I'll be sure to give that one a try if/when I get the book.

      Edit: Just ordered it so will hopefully be able to add my own to this thread at some point!

        I must say that my absolute favourite recipe is the heirloom tomato gazpacho posted on MDA which for some mysterious reason is not in the cookbook!

        The blackberry marinade is awesome.

          Yesterday I made my very first 'proper' meal with the Coconut Curry. It turned out brilliantly, even though I did perhaps overdo the coconut milk a little bit. I loved it!

              I just tried the kale with cream. It was the first time I'd tried cooking kale. I didn't cook it long enough -- or some of it. Some of it was amazing and sweet -- other parts were stringy and harsh. So be sure to cook your kale long enough! I also added two pieces of bacon to it. Quite yummy.

                Salmon Patties with Lemon Caper Sauce. At least so far, I'm still working my way through the book.

                  +1 on the creamed kale! I love egg dishes; they are cheap, quick & easy! so I also loved the chard frittata & I made the zucchini egg bake the other night. Leftovers from both are good for lunch the next day. I also made the steak & kidney stew with bison meat & kidney. coconut milk ice cream, mmmmm. for me recipes are a "jumping off" point - I'm always modifying for personal tast &/or ingredient availability. Oh & the tamari hard-boiled eggs are yummy too!
                  I think this is a great cook book with versatile recipes for all occasions!

                    I tried the primal ketchup recipe last night and I'd have to say it come out ok for a first try. Maybe for my taste anyway, next time I'll try a little less cider vinegar, a tad more honey (used a little over 2 tbsps, and a little more black pepper.

                        Coconut curry and Primal Pot Roast have pretty much become weekly menu items at my house. I've also made the clafouti twice, once with peaches and once with blueberries. I like it, but I'm still working on getting the texture/consistency to come out right. The blueberry version came out a little runny.

                          I've made several, and half were fantastic....
                          • Bison Chili (though with grass-fed beef). This was so great I've made it several times.
                          • Slow Cooker Italian Pot Roast with grass fed beef round. AMAZING flavor. Just a little tough--did I cook it too long? Not long enough?
                          • Easy slow-cooked chicken and broth. I don't usually like cold chicken, but this was moist and flavorful. Best rich stock I've ever made too.


                          The following were OK on the first attempt...will try again with some tweaks:
                          • Braised cabbage. I think I might just prefer lightly steamed cabbage. But will try again, since I forgot the pepper flakes this time.
                          • Mild liver pate....I had nowhere near enough liver for the amount of carrots/egg I used, so the color was odd and rather off-putting!
                          • Grok rocks...the prunes were really, really chewy. I think I was expecting something more like a medjool date texture. Might try it with dates next time.

                          Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
                          Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food

                            I cooked for the whole family for Labor Day.

                            Just made the clafouti last night. We made one with peaches and one with apples. The flavor was good, but the texture left a lot to be desired. We baked them a few hours before dinner and then kept them warm and I think that had a lot to do with it. They were pretty watery once you dug into them and they seemed to be separating a bit too.

                            I also made the Cardiff Crack. The tri-tip that I used was very thick and I left the fat pad on it while I cooked it and then trimmed it off afterwards. Came out a warm rare. Which is fine by me and a few others but I was a little dissapointed in the lack of flavor it had. I think that had to do with the thickness of the meat and actually not trimming the fat off prior to cooking.

                            Aside from that we had Fat Guac Devils and Spicy Chicken & Bacon Poppers as appetizers as well as brisket, pork ribs, and a wild goose that I smoked over pecan and hickory.

                              The primal pot roast is far and away our favorite from the cookbook!
