5 Paleo Diet Dinner Recipes

Rosemary and Garlic Roast Lamb

Ingredients:

  • 1.6 kg leg of lamb
  • 3 garlic cloves, halved
  • 2 tbs fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 small sweet potatoes, chopped into chunky pieces
  • 4 carrots, sliced length ways
  • Salt and pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 200°C (400ºF). Cut six slits into the lamb and then press one piece of garlic into each slit. Place the lamb in a large roasting pan and sprinkle evenly with rosemary and drizzle over 1 tablespoon of oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and place the sweet potato and carrot, in a single layer, around the lamb. Drizzle the remaining oil over the potato and carrot. Roast in oven for 50 more minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer the lamb to a plate and cover with foil. Set aside for 10 minutes. Turn potato and carrot and roast in oven for another 10 minutes or until crisp. Transfer to a bowl. Cover with foil to keep warm. Thickly slice the lamb across the grain. Serve with sweet potato and carrot.

 

Paleo Meatloaf

Ingredients:

  • 1kg of lean quality beef, minced
  • 1/2 tsp onion flakes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic flakes
  • 1/2 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 3 tbs tomato paste

  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 200ºC (390ºF). Place all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Mix. Place a length of foil on a baking tray, enough to hang over the edges and then place the meatloaf mixture onto tray on top of the foil. Fold foil up around the sides of the loaf to encase the meatloaf. Tear another layer of foil and place it over the top to form a blanket over the meatloaf. Place in the oven for 60 minutes.

  • 1 tbs grape-seed oil
  • 3 shallots, chopped
  • 2 tbs cilantro, chopped
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cans coconut milk
  • 1 tbs agave nectar
  • 1 package crimini mushrooms, sliced

Heat the grape-seed oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir the shallots and 2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro in the hot pan until the shallot has softened and turned translucent.
