Servings: 6
Preparation Time: 20-25 minutes

  • 1 pound ground turkey (or beef)
  • 8 ounces portobello mushrooms, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1/4 cup ketchup*
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard

In a large bowl, combine turkey, portobello mushrooms, onion, garlic, coconut flour, flax, coconut oil, salt, pepper and Italian seasonings. Mix together until well combined, form into a loaf and place into a greased or lined slow-cooker. (Place a few strips – about 2″ wide – of foil in your slow cooker so you can easily remove the meatloaf and clean up faster.)

In a small bowl, mix together ketchup and mustard until smooth. Pour over loaf. Slow-cook on low heat for about 6-7 hours or on high heat for 3-4 hours. Temperature needs to read 160 ° F.

Tip: Make two loaves at once and store one in the freezer for later use. Simply thaw in the fridge overnight and re-heat.

Make your own fresh ketchup at home using this recipe – Homemade Fresh Tomato Ketchup.

Servings: 6
Preparation Time:  25-30 minutes

Crust:

Filling:

  • 1/2 cup yellow onion chopped (1/2 inch)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 coconut cream concentrate
  • 12 cups your favorite veggie (I have used sweet potato, asparagus, zucchini, corn, all have been delicious…experiment and share how it turned out!)
  • 2 small potatoes, cubed 1/2 inch
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour (or as needed to thicken)

Dough:

Mix almond and coconut flour with the salt, then slowly fold in softened butter until it crumbles.  Stir in water by the tablespoon and mix dough thoroughly by hand.  Once dough is mixed, divide in half and roll into balls.  Cover or wrap balls and put in fridge.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees ºF.
Saute onions in coconut oil until they become translucent.  Heat vegetable broth in a medium pot and bring to a boil.  Once boiling add cumin and lower head to medium.  Add coconut cream concentrate.  Add vegetables to mixture and let simmer 15 minutes stirring frequently.

While mixture is simmering take 1/2 the dough and push down into the dish fairly thin and up the sides covering the dish.  Roll out remaining dough to cover top and set aside.  Fill the dish with rolled out dough making sure to fill any cracks.

Once mixture has simmered and dough is rolled out add coconut flour to mixture to thicken the liquid.  Pour mixture into dish.  Take rolled top and lay over dish.  If some cracks or falls apart that’s ok just press it back together and fill in cracks.  Press edges together.  Place in oven for 20-30 minutes or until dough is golden brown around edges.

Notes:

*You can grind your own almond flour by placing whole almonds in a blender/food processor and blending until you get a fine meal.

  • If you want to make this recipe completely vegan just substitute earth balance for butter.  Also coconut oil may work, but I haven’t tried it yet.
  • I use frozen broccoli florets and frozen peas to save time and it turns out great.

High Protein & Fiber Pancakes

Servings: 2 to 3
Preparation Time: 10 to 15 minutes

In a medium sized bowl, combine dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine all wet ingredients except milk and egg.

Place egg white in a small bowl and set aside. Add your yolk to the wet ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Slowly add milk one tablespoon at a time to the batter, until desired consistency is reached. I used 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons but if you want a thinner batter, you can add up to 1/2 cup.

Whisk the egg white until soft peaks form (about a minute or two). Using a spatula, fold egg whites into your pancake batter.

In a lightly oiled skillet, over medium heat, cook pancakes two at a time for about two minutes per side. Watch carefully to make sure they don’t burn.

Wheat Free Coconut Pancakes

Servings: Yields 5 palm-sized pancakes or 10 silver dollar-sized pancakes
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Optional Add-In’s :

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup more water or nut milk only if the batter looks too dry/thick.

Blend first 4 ingredients in a blender. Let this sit for 10 minutes or so while you’re getting the rest of the ingredients together. It will give the flax seeds time to gel, thereby producing an egg-like effect. The apple and banana help with this, too.

Add remaining ingredients and optional add-ins if desired and mix well.

After you have blended the ingredients, fry up the pancakes using 2 tablespoons coconut oil to fry with, about 4 minutes on the first side. Flip over and add 2 more tablespoons coconut oil and fry for 3 minutes or until done.

Coconut Kefir Pancakes

 

Mix everything but the egg and leave for a couple of hours room temp so that you can culture the mix. When ready to stoke ’em up, beat in the egg. For fresh flavor add small chunks of organic apples or even banana slices…or both.

Cook in stainless or cast iron fry pan with coconut oil. Never fry too hot that it smokes like crazy. That is bad.

Spoon out silver dollar or larger size, but smooth out if you like flat pancakes.

Set out on plate and sprinkle organic maple syrup or your favorite syrup over the delicious little gems. Enjoy!
