Thai Spicy Pork Mince Salad recipe (Larb Moo)

Thai Spicy Pork Mince Salad recipe (Larb Moo)

    A healthy paleo twist on an old Thai favourite. Deliciously hot as well as quick & easy to cook! We strongly recommend cooking this recipe with lamb’s fry (or other liver if you prefer) as it’s a great way of adding all the healthy nutrients of liver into your diet in an easily palatable way!   Recipe: Makes 2 large or 3 smaller servings.   Ingredients: 500g pork mince ~200g lamb’s fry, cut into small pieces (optional, but recommended!) 100ml fresh squeezed lime juice 1/2 cup mint leaves, chopped 2 tsp dry chillies, roasted and ground* 2 tbsp cashews, roasted and ground 2 tbsp minced spring onion 2 tbsp minced shallots 2 tbsp fish sauce cabbage to line plates cucumber, tomatoes, etc (on the side to cool the hotness)   Instructions: Squeeze limes and prepare all other ingredients into bowls. Roast chillies and cashews in a pan and grind/smash/chop roughly. Line plates with cabbage a plenty and arrange cucumber sticks on the side. Mix 3/4 of the lime juice with the pork mince & lamb’s fry. Squeeze excess lime juice into a hot pan (no need to add any oil). Wait for juice to boil, then proceed to cook the mince until very well cooked – preferably crispy. Once mince is fully cooked, transfer into a big bowl and add in all remaining ingredients (remaining lime juice, mint leaves, chillies, cashews, spring onion, shallots and fish sauce). Mix well. Transfer onto cabbage leaves and enjoy!   * I like it hot, so you might want to add the chilli in little by little to reach optimal hotness. On the other hand, you...

Paleo Chicken Panang Curry

Chicken Panang curry is a beautiful fragrant curry ideal to heat up a cold winter night. With sweet potato added directly into the curry, no rice is necessary! Make your own paste from scratch, or use a ready-made one – either way this meal is a delicious treat!   Panang Curry Paste: Makes enough for 2 curries.  5 dried spur chillies, seeded and soaked until tender 1 tsp sea salt 1 tsp mature galangal, finely sliced 1/2 tbsp kaffir lime rind, finely sliced 1 tsp coriander root, finely sliced 1 tsp lemongrass, sliced 10 cloves garlic, sliced 1/3 cup shallot, sliced 1/2 tsp pepper 1 tsp shrimp paste In a large mortar, finely pound the spur chillies and salt together.

Divide paste into two equal doses and freeze the other half for later use.   In a hurry?  You can also use a ready-made paste. We like Maesri’s Panang Curry Paste, even though it’s not entirely paleo friendly, as it contains sugar. Whole list of ingredients: dried red chilies, garlic, shallot, lemongrass, sugar, salt, kaffir lime, galangal, spices (coriander seed, cumin, cardamom, bay leaves). Product of Thailand.   Ingredients: 1 tbsp coconut oil 6 cloves garlic, sliced thin 1 onion, sliced thin 1 shallot, sliced thin 1 can coconut cream 1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed 1 carrot, sliced long 500g chicken breast, sliced thin 4 radishes, washed and sliced 2 handfuls snap peas, sliced long 3 green spur chillies, sliced thin 1-2 tbsp fish sauce Juice...
Thai no-noodle soup with prawns

Thai no-noodle soup with prawns

  This paleo Thai soup is a quick and easy winter meal to keep you warm, nourish you in a hurry and clean up the fridge all at once!   Ingredients: Curry paste of choice* Jungle, Tom Yam, Laksa, etc. work very well. This tends to be our ‘fridge cleaner’ / ‘need to make something quickly’ go to meal, so we usually end up using a ready-made paste, just because it’s quicker and easier. Of course the best option is to create your own pastes from scratch, which really isn’t that complicated. There are plenty of recipes to trial and you can even look up a list of ingredients on a paste you like the sound of, and just try blending it yourself. If you can find the ingredients (Thai chillies, galangal, ginger, garlic, lemongrass, etc) the rest is easy! Prawns (…or any protein really) Fresh, frozen, whatever you have available.  We try to keep a bag of good quality frozen prawns in the freezer at all times. You can also throw in leftover chicken/beef/pork/fish/etc. Get creative and try it out. Veggies Rummage through the fridge or make a trip to your closest Asian grocery store. In this case we used radishes, red onion, garlic, snap peas, broccoli, green spur chillies, red Thai chillies and Thai Basil. Also consider: carrots, cauliflower, green beans,  lime, okra, eggplant, pea eggplant, capsicum, cabbage… anything you have really.   Instructions: Heat paste in a wok. When paste turns fragrant, add in sliced garlic and add enough water to turn it soupy (you can also use coconut milk depending on the paste you’re using). Depending...
