This recipe comes from the creative culinary minds of Matt Whitmore and Keris Marsden authors of the recently released The Paleo Primer. Recall what I said earlier this week about Primal living having no need or patience for deprivation. Case in point, this indulgent but perfectly Primal dish.

Primal eating involves ditching the breads and wraps which can be tough if these have been your staple breakfast or lunch for years, but fear not!
