Recipe found on My Heart Beets
My Rating: 3/5

My Review: We enjoyed this soup, it was simple and tasty. I did find the broth to be a bit too gritty, though. Still, we were impressed with the level of creaminess achieved with no dairy.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 3 cups cooked chicken, white and dark meat
  • 2 tablespoons butter or ghee or fat of choice (we used Earth Balance Buttery Spread)
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds of peeled potatoes
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Β½ teaspoon black pepper
  • Β½ teaspoon cayenne, optional
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary

Recipe found on Stupid Easy Paleo
My Rating: 5/5

My Review: Whoa! What an interesting dish! It looks like a big egg cake but, it tasted like so much more. The flavor blew our minds. The jalapenos were so wonderful and spicy, the tomatoes were sweet yet tart, and the cauliflower rice was a hit!! All together, along with the ground beef bits and a little salsa, it was the perfect bite.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 1 lb riced cauliflower or one small cauliflower
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups store-bought roasted tomato salsa
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 large eggs, whisked
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 jalapeΓ±o or serrano pepper, thinly sliced crosswise (optional)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, lightly packed

My Rating: 5/5

My Review: 5 out 5, 5 out of 5, 5 out of 5!!! Never have I ever tried Chicken Paprikash before but, man, am I so glad we tried it. This dish was absolutely fan-freakin’-tastic. The chicken was so tender, juicy, and full of flavor from the rich, semi-spicy, tomato-y, almost but not quite coconut-y broth. OOO-WEE, it was YUM-MEE. Even better when I heated it up the next two days in a row, too. πŸ˜‰ For our side: brown rice.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp ghee (we used Earth Balance buttery spread)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 large yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder (we used cornstarch)

  1. I’ve made chicken pot pie soup before and I couldn’t stand it! It seemed totally gross to me, even though Joshua liked it. There was just something about the flavor…it was all wrong, lol. It looks like this one is way better & I’d love to try it because chicken pot pie is amazing!
