Here is another post of some decent and excellent recipes we’ve tried lately! If you have some favorites, please leave a comment with the link!
Recipe #1 – Paleo Beef and Broccoli
We made this recipe recently and it turned out ok. I am sharing it because I want to make it again with a few minor changes because I think it could be better. The first issue with the recipe: it was WAY too salty. DO NOT add the salt that is in the recipe. it does not need it. Whenever I do a recipe that calls for soy sauce, I never add the salt that the recipe calls for because it doesn’t need it. I don’t know why I didn’t listen to my gut on this one this time. But I followed the recipe and added the salt and it was just too much.
The second issue I had with the recipe was the serving sizes. It said it was 4 servings and it was not. Maybe if you have it with rice (or cauliflower rice to make it keto-friendly) but it was really 3 servings.
So again, I’d make this recipe again but I’d modify it and not add any salt.
Recipe #2 – Garlic Butter Chicken Bites
I had some leftover chicken tenders from the curry soup I made recently and so I looked around for a quick and easy chicken skillet recipe I could do for lunch when I was working from home. I found one on Instagram and so I made this marinade and it turned out SUPER tasty! It was really really good. I didn’t do the zoodles with the recipe, just the chicken. I added it to my salad and then I had some leftover for lunch the next day.
Recipe #3 – Crispy Buffalo Tofu
This was really tasty! I had it for lunch, actually. And I had it with blue cheese dressing as a dip instead of the avocado dip in the recipe. It was pretty good. The next day I reheated the leftovers in the skillet with avocado oil (instead of ghee) and it got a lot crispier the second time around and I liked it even better. I would definitely make this recipe again!
Recipe #4 – Chicken and Goat Cheese Skillet
I made a few alterations to make it keto-friendly. First, I used heavy cream instead of milk per the recipe. I also skipped the rice and pasta, obviously.
Second, I didn’t have plum tomatoes so a used a bunch of grape tomatoes. I also had half a zucchini I threw into the skillet to use up. Overall, I liked the recipe. It was creamy and fresh. I liked using the veggies. It wasn’t high in fat (keto) but it was a low carb recipe and a healthy recipe. Michael liked it a lot. I thought it was a little on the plain side. I think I would make it again and add some more spices, maybe sauté some onions, too. I’d definitely make it again, though!
Recipe #5 – Naked Fish Tacos
This one was a winner! I really really liked it a lot! I added some raw radishes to the coleslaw mix. I also added some fresh grape tomatoes, black olives and topped everything with cojita cheese. It turned out great! I would definitely make this again and I can see it being in our rotation on a regular basis. You could also make it with chicken or shrimp and it would be good, too, I think.
