Now, I know its been a while between posts. Study, work, and family have certainly kept me busy the last year. 2017 is shaping up to be no different.
I started this year with so many commitments eating up my time, that I have to look at being more efficient where I could. I have started meal planning to make sure that I’m not wasting foods (pet hate of mine) and that I’m not spending more money on groceries than I should be. After our mortgage, food is our biggest expense in my household.
So, I got busy planning, and coming up with some new recipes. This one was one of them…
The other day I shared my recipe for my Paleo Sweet Chilli Sauce, a great dipping sauce made with all paleo compliant ingredients. Well, here is the recipe that I served it with when I was asked along to a ‘bring-a-plate’ night with friends.
These paleo asian baked meatballs are quick and easy to make, and use common fresh ingredients in most paleo homes. The flavour is subtle and not over powering, so the kids can enjoy them too.
By now you all know I’m a bit of a lover of asian cuisine. So its no surprise I tried a new idea today to use up some of our gardens harvest. We have been very lucky this year and have harvested a truck load of broccoli (well not literally a truck load, but close). I didn’t want to waste any of it, so I’m trying a few new recipes.
This one was very easy, and doesn’t use too many ingredients. Like most slow cooker recipes, its great for mid week, when things are extra busy. I love the idea of eating food that we grew, so I take extra pride when I can dish up recipes like this to my family.
Looking for a light mid week meal? Perhaps something you can serve to friends at a dinner party, or as an entree? Then you should try these super easy paleo asian beef lettuce cups. This light meal can be enjoyed as is or as part of a banquet.
My love of asian dishes does not cease. I am always looking for a new way to enjoy the flavours. As the weather warms here, I want lighter meals. I don’t want the heavy comfort food so often enjoyed in the cooler, hibernating months of winter. Though light and easy, I still want to taste those same flavours. This meal ticks those boxes.
