The other day I made an AMAZING Thai Coconut Soup (Gena you gotta try this, you are gonna love it)!!! It was so so good, and exactly what I (and apparently baby) wanted. Last night I made an Asian Chicken Salad – also wonderful. In the past I have talked about wanting to experience Asia and perhaps adopt from Asian. Haha, Drew started asking if God was miraculously giving us an Asian baby since all I have craved this week is Asian foods 🙂
Today, I had the left over soup and salad for lunch. 15 minutes later it ALL came right back up. Fun times 🙂 I am not sure if something went bad in the food or just my hormones (I have not thrown up with the pregnancy until today). Regardless, I may not be making either dish for a while. Tonight I was going to make Thai Beef Wraps – maybe NOT. My Asian cravings are done for at least a few days. Now what’s for dinner??? I saw a nice big spaghetti squash on the counter and thought – why not, let’s head to Italy tonight! I pretty much created this recipe on the fly with what I had in my kitchen – feel free to get creative!
Grass-Fed Beef “Spaghetti”
Ingredients: (remember these are just the things I threw in the pot, get creative)
- 1-2 pounds ground grass-fed beef
- 28 oz can Muir Glenn Crushed Tomatoes w/ Basil (or whatever brand you have)
- 2-3 fresh tomatoes – chopped (cause I got several from my co-op this week)
- 1 red onion – chopped
- 2 carrots shredded (I use my food processor)
- 3 celery shredded (again, food processor)
- 1/4 cup coconut milk (coconut paste would be better, I did not have any)
- 3-4 garlic cloves – crushed (or as many as you like)
- Lots of fresh basil and oregano!!!
- Salt to taste
I sautéed the onions and garlic in olive oil for a few minutes until soft, then set aside. In the same pan brown the beef. In a separate pot add all the other ingredinets (including the onions) and bring to boil. Add the browned beef when ready, reduce heat and simmer until you are ready to eat – at least 30 minutes. I had mine on simmer for over an hour – the longer the better.
I served this over spaghetti squash tonight, you could also do cauliflower rice, or zucchini and carrot “noodles”…
I think I may even try this in the crock pot next time! I seem to have more energy in the mornings so crockpot cooking is ideal! If you have any good paleo crockpot recipes – send em my way 🙂
Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
