Natural Paleo Dyed Easter Eggs

I discovered this way to dye eggs last year around Easter time, way before I went Paleo.  And now that Easter is only a few short days away this year, it occurred to me that onion-peel-dyed hard boiled eggs are totally Paleo without even having to try!  Besides, I read somewhere that this is how Jesus dyed the dinosaur eggs that were served at his last supper.  Super awesome, right?

All the directions are in the photo above, and all you really need are whole raw eggs, string or rubber bands, onion peels, and an old tshirt.  And no, the eggs don’t really end up tasting like onion or curry.  They just taste like normal hard boiled eggs.

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!
