Add chicken pieces and brown. Add water, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for ten minutes until chicken is done. Remove chicken with slotted spoon and reserve the poaching liquid. Put liquid in the refrigerator for an hour so that it’s easier to remove fat from the top. Reserve 6 cups of liquid. Cut chicken into small pieces. 2) Puree garlic, ginger, lemongrass, curry paste and salt in a blender or food processor. 3) Heat the remaining 2 T. of oil over medium heat.

To roast the eggplants, either use your grill, the open flame of a gas stove or your oven. If using an open flame, keep the eggplant near the flame and turn them often to darken the skin evenly. If using your stove, prick the skin with a fork and roast for about 35 minutes in a 400 F oven. 2. Put the roasted eggplants in a bowl of cold water, wait a bit and then peel off the skin. 3. Place the roasted eggplant, garlic, lemon juice, tahini, olive oil, cumin in a blender and blend until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 4. Cool in the refrigerator and serve with extra olive oil on top and fresh parsley.

Paleo Cacao Nib Cookies Barb (Jess’ Mom) 1 C Almond Flour 2/3 C Shredded Coconut 1 1/2 Tablespoons coconut oil 1/2 Cup Almond Butter 1 C Coco Nibs 1/3 Coconut Flour 1 Tablespoon vanilla 1 Egg 2 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder 1/2 Cup Honey or Agave * Note - you may be tempted to skip the coconut flour. Don't. It really does something for them. U can buy it at Whole Foods. U can skip the cocoa powder for a less chocolaty taste. Either way, the nibs give them a crunchy chocolaty taste that's awesome. Spoon more or less round blobs onto a cookie sheet - round is better than flat because the inside stays a little chewy. Cook for about 9 minutes at 350. Recipe taken from the Albany Crossfit website Coconut Walnut Cookies ¼ cup coconut oil ¼ cup agave 1 t. vanilla 1 ¼ cup almond flour ¼ t. baking soda ½ cup walnuts, toasted and chopped ½ cup coconut flakes In a large bow mix the oil, agave and vanilla. In a smaller bowl, blend all of the dry ingredients: almond flour, salt, baking soda, walnuts, coconuts, and fruit. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix completely. Drop by the teaspoonful on to a baking sheet lined with parchment. The batter is pretty crumbly, so just kind of squish the batter together. Flatten the cookies slightly and be sure to space as they do spread a bit. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes. Paleo Buffalo Wings: Jane Elizabeth and Jason Rinse chicken wing parts and pat dry with paper towel. Sprinkle with garlic powder and bake in 350 degree oven until cooked through. Even better, just partially cook wings (to 75%) in oven and finish on your grill for charbroiled flavor and appearance. (Note: Wings cooked only on grill may be tough). Sauce: on stove top, heat one can of coconut milk wih one can of Texas Pete Sauce to bubbling. Pour over cooked wings and serve. Keeps well in crock pot for parties. Paleo Sausage Stuffed Peppers: Jane Elizabeth and Jason Cook 4 inch or so sausages thoroughly on stovetop (follow package directions) or on grill. Preheat oven to 350˚. Rinse and dry long sweet red peppers (available in bulk at BJ's). Remove green stem and visible seeds and veins. Slice peppers almost in half and insert cooked sausage. Place in ungreased casserole and cover with prepared marinara sauce (make sure no sugar or sweetener in ingredients - we like Rozzano's brand at BJ's) Purists can substitute 2 large cans of drained whole tomatoes and 1 small can of crushed tomatoes along with some garlic powder and Italian spices. Note: if you have time, add sliced onions cooked on stove until soft. Cover casserole with tin foil and bake until peppers are soft and sauce bubbles. To serve, slice peppers in half for dinner or in 1 inch pieces for appetizers. BBQ Pulled Pork Ben and Lisa Ellington Rub is 1/4 cup honey, 1 Tbs Cayenne Pepper, 2 Tbs Black Pepper, 1 Tbs Sage, 2 Tbs Paprika, 1 Tsp Salt. It's going to be sticky, so be prepared to get your fingers messy. You can add a tablespoon of cider vinegar to cut it town if it’s too hard to work with. Just rub it into the meat well, wrap it all in tin foil and put it in the fridge for 24 hours. Cook in a smoker for 1/2 hour per pound, or until internal temp is 170+. Then remove as much foil as you can (Collect at least a half cup drippings first!) and put it in a low heat-smoking grill. I use my Weber for this; you lay a layer of coals and then put wet wood chips on top. Don't allow much airflow at all, and it will smoke well for a couple of hours. The sauce is 1.5 cups cider vinegar, .5 cups water, .5 cups drippings, 1/4 cup honey, 1 tsp pepper flakes, 1 tsp black pepper, and 1/2 tsp salt. Bring it all to a boil, and add Tabasco sauce to taste. Let set for several hours. Mix it in when you chop the pork.
