    Vegetarian Primal dinners?

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone have any suggestions on what to make for my sister and her family while they're staying with me? I offered to make supper this weekend, but I'd prefer not to make them pasta. I'd like to make them something primal and delicious, but they're lacto-ovo vegetarians. Also, my brother in law won't eat mushrooms. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I love me a soup & salad. How about a spicy pumpkin coconut soup Spicy Pumpkin Coconut Soup Recipe | Eat Drink Paleo with a Thai salad with a dressing of lime juice, soy sauce, chili and a bit of sweetener of your choice? Something like this: Vegetarian Thai Salad - Vegetarian Thai Salad Recipe

    Lacto-ovo means yes to dairy and eggs right?

    Here's some goodies:
    Curried Eggs
    Baked potatoes with sour cream and grated cheese
    Roasted root vegetables
    Carrot sticks with pesto (using Olive Oil) and Brie/Camerbert
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Cook some vegetables in huge amounts of grass fed butter for them, cook a couple lamb chops for yourself and knaw on the bones while they slurp down green stuff and watch in horror.

    How about:

    Curried Sweet Potato Soup
    (with almond butter)

    (This is a rather mild curry -- adjust spices if you like it hotter)

    2 cups chopped onion
    2 tablespoons coconut oil
    2 tablespoons curry powder
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    4 cups vegetable stock -- or 4 cups water + 4 teaspoons vegetable broth flavoring
    1 15-oz can diced tomatoes
    4 cups diced sweet potatoes
    2/3 cup almond butter
    1 14-oz. can coconut milk (not 'lite')
    1 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
    1/2 cup chopped cilantro (optional)
    2 limes, quartered (optional)

    In a large pot, saute the onion in the coconut oil until tender. Add the curry powder, cayenne, and garlic powder and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the stock and tomatoes; bring to a boil and add the diced sweet potatoes. Cover and simmer until sweet potatoes are tender, about 20 to 30 minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond butter and coconut milk. Pour the mixture into the pot and heat. Puree with an immersion blender (or in a regular blender) until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning -- I needed to add a teaspoon of sea salt.

    If desired, garnish with cilantro and serve with lime wedges. Makes at least 4 servings or more.

    Here's another idea -- you may need to substitute coconut oil for the ghee (if they are vegan) and vegetable stock for the broth:
