Paleo Diet News: Recipe Round-Up

Get cooking! Photo courtesy of

I’m still buzzing from the excitement of creating an impromptu and delicious paleo diet soup yesterday from some leftover fridge ingredients, so I thought I’d share that with you along with a couple of other great paleo recipes from around the web.  Yep, it’s recipe round-up time!

Brian’s Impromptu Thai Vegetable Soup

I wish I’d taken a photo of this to share, but - truth be told - I didn’t have time before the entire batch was polished off!  Not to toot my own horn, but - it was delicious.  Photo next time,

I promise.

Ingredients (serves 4):
  • Half a tablespoon each of coconut oil and clarified butter for cooking (or 1 tablespoon of oil)
  • 1 large mild onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 x 2-inch piece lemongrass, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 large carrots, sliced
  • Half a teaspoon ground coriander
  • Pinch of crushed dried chillies (or use fresh, to your taste)
  • 1 quart of bone broth - chicken, beef, or lamb (I used lamb)
  • 1 large red bell pepper, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, peeled and chopped
  • 1 large zucchini (or two small), diced
  • Half a teaspoon of garam masala
  • 2 blocks of creamed coconut
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons of thai fish sauce


  • In a large soup pot, saute the onion and lemongrass in the coconut oil and butter for about 2 mins, until beginning to soften.  Add the carrots and saute for another minute.  Add the garlic, chillies and ground coriander and saute for one minute more.
  • Add the stock to the pan, and bring to a simmer. Add all the remaining ingredients.
  • Simmer for around 20 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  • Serve hot with chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves on top.
  • This would make a great starter or snack soup, but to make the soup more of a meal, add strips of cooked steak or pork before serving.

Paleo Pizza

Who doesn’t love pizza?  Well, we don’t love the white flour and dodgy additives, that’s for sure.  Here’s how to make a pizza that won’t break your paleo diet (note, you can leave the cheese off, or use a high-quality dairy version):

      Hi Maeve,
      Sorry for not answering sooner. I was not able to get on line over the last couple of days.
      Tapioca is a starch extracted from Cassava. I would consider it to be paleo. It’s a starch that’s been used for thousands of years.
