Easy Butternut Squash Soup

IMG_7758This is perhaps the easiest squash soup recipe that I’ve ever seen!  And, it’s really creamy, yummy, and filling!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large butternut squash (or 2 small)
  • 1 or 2 cans of coconut milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2- 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)

Preheat oven to 350, cut squash in half (length-wise) and remove seeds.  Place cut side down on cookie sheet and cook for around 45 min or until tender.  Scoop out squash into a sauce pan and add 1 can of coconut milk.  Mash together using a potato masher on low heat.  Sprinkle in some rosemary (or any other herb you have on hand) and the nutmeg.  After it is hot, serve and enjoy!

Paleo Pressure Cooker Beef Stew

IMG_7754 I just bought myself a pressure cooker!  I’ve never owned one before, but I think it will be a great addition to my paleo kitchen.  We’ve been out of town for a while and today I decided I would try out my new pressure cooker with whatever I could find in my kitchen.  So, I just made this recipe up as i went along, so the amounts are estimates of what I used.

Ingredients:

  • ~2lb grass-fed chuck roast (still frozen)
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1-2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/2-1 tsp sea salt
  • ~1 tsp thyme
  • 1 bag frozen green beans
  • 1 bag frozen broccoli,cauliflower, and carrots
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into large chunks

Saute onions, celery, and garlic in 2-3 Tbsp coconut oil, until soft.  Add the roast and all the rest of the ingredients finishing with the sweet potatoes on top.  Close pressure cooker and cook  for 50-55 minutes.  Be aware that the potaoes fall apart and thicken the stew, but the flavor is wonderful! and quite satisfying!IMG_7750IMG_7752IMG_7751
