Chicken lettuce wraps at a local restaurant -- simply grilled chicken, lettuce, veggies. I asked for limes on the side so I could squeeze them onto the wraps. Would have been awesome with some coconut aminos.
Home-smoked meats are your friend. Tons of flavor! So good! So easy! I rubbed down a pork shoulder and tritip with my own blend of nightshade-free spices and cooked them using this method:

(Note: the recipe there uses paprika. I did not. You can use any rub and get good results.)
Lettuce-wrapped hamburgers...but they're really bland without mustard or ketchup or mayo or cheese. Also need to make sure they don't use "grill seasoning", which is usually just salt and pepper, but sometimes is more than that.
Oxtail soup with orange peel and anise. This was super yummy and highly flavorful.
Curries using homemade curry powder. Most premade curry powders contain paprika or chiles, and I don't trust the ones that don't include those ingredients. Luckily, I have the spices for homemade curry powder on hand, so not a problem for me.
Longbeans with coconut aminos and sesame oil. I loved this. The husband was not as enthusiastic.
Tonight I have some chicken fingers I want to try. I've been soaking chicken breast strips in coconut milk and vinegar (what I hope will emulate buttermilk), garlic and onion powders, and I'm going to "bread" those in coconut and almond flours, then bake them.
I also have a recipe for a "marinara" using beets and sweet squash (kabocha, butternut, etc.). I'll let you know if this turns out good. I am hoping so. This is from one of my old macrobiotic recipes. Always meant to try it, never got around to it.
In a pinch, I just eat spoonfuls of coconut manna. Hey, it could be worse.
