Paleo Spaghetti Sauce

Recipe for Simple Paleo Spaghetti Sauce

(one serving)

  1. One finely chopped tomato
  2. One tablespoon tomato paste
  3. Once diced slice of an onion, doesn’t really matter what color/type
  4. Two tablespoons coconut milk
  5. One minced garlic clove
  6. One teaspoon dry oregano (or four medium fresh oregano leaves)
  7. One teaspoon dry basil (or four medium fresh basil leaves)

Dump everything into a pan on medium heat and stir.  Though if you’re using fresh herbs, leave them out until the very end of simmering time.  As soon as your ingredients start to show signs of boiling (or as close as something that thick can get – probably about a minute or two at most for one serving), turn it down and let it all simmer with a lid on for about 20 minutes.  Add a little salt and pepper if you want to, though I didn’t feel it needed it.  Then stir again and serve, hopefully on spaghetti squash with big fat delicious meatballs!

Quick Paleo Curry

The first time I ever tried Japanese curry, I fell in love.  In Japan, curry is a kind of fast food – like burgers or burritos are here.  So today I decided to stray from my previous 2-hour curry cooking sessions which used S&B Golden Curry pre-mixed and full of sugar, and create curry from scratch FAST.  I’ll admit that the end result doesn’t taste quite as good as the curry I used to make with the S&B box and a refrigerator full of fresh veggies, but it only took about 10 minutes and it’s a ton healthier.  And it does still taste very good!  This will be my everyday style curry recipe, and I’ll save the stockpile of S&B boxes for special occasions.

Paleo Curry Recipe Ingredients

Fast Paleo Curry Recipe:

  1. 1/2 can Coconut Milk
  2. 1 chopped however you like it Onion
  3. Curry Powder to taste
  4. Leftover Chicken, shredded or chopped
  5. Frozen Bell Pepper strips (or fresh if you have the time)
  6. 1 can Mushrooms
  7. Cans of anything else you can think of.  I had some bamboo shoots that had been sitting in my cupboard for forever, so in they went!

Brown the onion first, then just start dumping in all the rest of the ingredients.  Add the coconut milk and the curry powder last.  Use LOTS of curry powder.  Taste test.  Add more curry powder.  Taste test again.  Add curry powder and maybe some ground cayenne pepper if you’re feeling spicy.  Then serve with a bag of broccoli you steamed in the microwave.  And if you want to break the official Paleo rules a little bit with me, plop a little Greek yogurt on top!
