Beef & Sweet Potato Hash

This is one of my favorite, “one dish” meals! It’s a healthy, and quick dinner option for this busy time of the year.IMG_5474

The original recipe can be found in FastPaleo Top 100 of 2012. I found it to be a bit to “meaty” for my taste, it called for 3 pounds of beef! I’ve revamped it to include more veggies, and less beef.

Enjoy!

Serves 4 Prep time: 15 minutes. Cook time: 35 minutes

Turkey Pumpkin Chili

I knew with all the rain headed our way, I’d be craving a warming soup, or stew for dinner last night. I dug this oldie but goodie out of my recipe box.

Zucchini Chocolate Muffins (Dairy-Free/Egg-Free/Gluten-Free/Nut-free)

photo-7These muffins are a great way use the bounty of zucchini that’s available in the summer! They have just the right amount of sweetness without the “sugar overload” that often comes along with most muffin recipes.

I have lots of different types of flour left over from experimenting with gluten free sourdough. One of them is sorghum, so I decided to try a recipe with it. If you don’t have sorghum on hand, any gluten free flour mix, or almond flour should work as a substitute.

If you decide to use almond flour, I recommend using tapioca flour instead of the arrowroot flour. Keep in mind, if you use cacao powder these will be a tad less sweet 🙂

Makes 12 regular size muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 cups grated zucchini (doesn’t need to be peeled)
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
