From: Patti Vincent Gujerati Carrot Salad 5 carrots, medium 1 tbs. whole black mustard seeds 1/4 tsp. salt 2 tsp. lemon juice 2 tbs. olive oil Trim and peel and grate carrots. In a small heavy pan over medium heat, heat oil. When very hot, add mustard seeds. As soon as the seeds begin to pop, in a few seconds, pour oil and seeds over carrots. Add lemon juice and toss. Serve at room temperature or cold. Yield: 4 servings. Recipe by Madhur Jaffray, publ. in The Toronto Sun From: Mrarchway via Amanda Balsamic Marinade This works equally well for steak, pork, and chicken. Balsamic is one of the weaker vinegars, so you don't have to fret too much over over-marinating, but given enough time it will break down and eventually toughen the meat. A few splashes of balsamic vinegar 2 cloves garlic, minced Sea salt and black pepper to cover all sides Thyme (fresh or otherwise) Rub the meat with all the ingredients. This is more of a wet rub, but it will impart a lot of flavor. Leave the meat in the fridge for half an hour before cooking. If you want to reach more meat faster, go ahead and add some olive oil to the mix (along with more of everything else), which will allow for a more traditional, liquid marinade. Paleo Blueberry Ice Cream 1 can coconut milk (full fat) 2 cups frozen berries 1 tsp vanilla extract Blend all ingredients together in a blender.
Pour into individual cups.
Place in freezer for 1-2 hours until thickened. I don't recommend freezing them solid, unless you want something more like an italian ice instead of an ice cream. Apple Lemonade 2 cups unsweetened apple juice 4 tablespoons pure lemon juice Combine juices. Chill. Serve over ice. Makes about 2 servings. From: http://www.nlci.com/nutrition/recipe.htm
