The best thing about this recipe for Asian meatballs from Nom Nom Paleo (aside from how great it tastes, how fast it takes to prepare, how easy it is to double (leftovers!), and how popular it is for parties), is the mushrooms and sweet potato, snuck inside. We’re open to any and all ways to get those extra nutrients. Also, the mushrooms add a greater umami depth of flavor, and the sweet potato provides a bright and lovely pop of color.
Three ingredients, 20 minutes total cooking + prep time, the sweet herbaciousness of asparagus combined with the crave-able meaty saltiness of bacon? Eat Drink Paleo‘s recipe for prosciutto-wrapped asparagus is a no-brainer.
You know a protein-based food is universally beloved when every vegetarian “meat” brand you can think of has made a vegan version of it. And so it is with chicken fingers. This recipe from Healy Eats Real earns extra love for being Paleo-, Keto-, and AIP-compliant.
Eat Drink Paleo has come up with a fantastic take on the sushi roll with her paleo sushi with salmon and avocado recipe: use cucumber in place of rice! Not only does this version get rid of the grain, it also stands up to the inevitable jostling while you’re on your way to that potluck or picnic. The cucumber doesn’t get soggy so it keeps its shape, its flavor, and that satisfying cucumber crunch that balances so beautifully against the soft ingredients inside. Bonus: This recipe is really popular with little kids and is a good way to get them to eat their veggies.
Add more bacon! That seems like the best answer to everything. Foodiecrush certainly got it right as the only thing that can touch the perfection of nature’s most exquisite stone fruit. Prepped in mere minutes, ready in 20; this dish is as great as an hors d’oeuvre at an elegant party as it is a quick and casual lunch or snack food.
