Egg Fried Tomatoes – Chinese Comfort Food

egg fried tomatoes recipeI just discovered this recipe and I am really soooooo happy! This is my new favorite way to enjoy eggs. The Chinese consider this as a comfort food and it is the #1 seller in school cafeterias. They serve it over rice but, being Paleo, I just serve it as is in a big bowl and chow down! The taste is so fresh and delicious.

It is also a very simple dish to make. So easy that it is usually the first dish Chinese children learn to cook. So it makes a great quick Paleo breakfast, lunch or dinner with just 2 ingredients that you likely already have on hand!

Paleo Waffles Recipe

Paleo Waffles Recipe

Paleo Waffles With Fruit Topping

If you are like me, Paleo breakfasts can sometimes be a challenge. Trying to come up with quick and easy breakfasts on the fly during a busy workday can be difficult. This Paleo Waffles recipe has been a life-saver for me. Not only do i get to enjoy them on a lazy Sunday morning, but I also make up double batch of them that I can put in the freezer. Then on my work days, I can just pop the frozen waffles in the toaster like Eggos and have a hearty, healthy breakfast on the plate in under 2 minutes.

Seriously! You have to try these. They are so delicious and loaded with protein/coconut oil goodness. You can also use them as the bread in a sandwich. Or your favorite chicken & waffles dinner. Just because you have chosen to go Paelo doesn’t mean you have to give up the things you love, you just need to adapt them to your new lifestyle.

Paleo Waffles Recipe

(makes 6-8 waffles)

Ingredients:

1 1/2 c almond flour

1/2 c flax meal

2 tbsp coconut oil, melted

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 eggs, beaten

1/4 c buttermilk or coconut milk

Directions:

Turn on your waffle maker so it is pre-heating while you mix the batter.

Place all dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine wet ingredients and add to the dry. Stir with a spoon until well blended. (don’t use an electric mixer) If the batter is too thick add a little more milk. Place approx. 1/4 c of batter for each square waffle (depending on the size of your waffle maker) Close the lid and allow to cook until the steam stops coming out of the waffle maker or until the indicator light comes on (if your waffle maker has this feature). It only takes about 2 minutes to cook.

I like to use a fruit syrup as my topping instead of maple syrup because it is less sweet and full of antioxidants.

Paleo Waffle Fruit Toppings Recipes:

Mixed Berry Syrup

1 pint blueberries

1 pint raspberries

juice of one large orange (approx. 1/2 c)

3-4 dates, chopped

Place all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer stirring occasionally. The dates act as a natural sweetener and will thicken the syrup slightly. If you like a sweeter syrup, just add a few more dates. If you like it less sweet, reduce or omit the dates.

Apple Cinnamon Syrup

1-2 apples, peeled, cored and diced

1 cup unsweetened apple juice or cider

1 tsp cinnamon

dash of nutmeg and cloves (optional)

Place all ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer stirring occasionally. The dates act as a natural sweetener and will thicken the syrup slightly. If you like a sweeter syrup, just add a few more dates. If you like it less sweet, reduce or omit the dates. The results will be a thin, sweet applesauce type of topping.

Cool sauces completely and store in the fridge in a jar or air-tight container.

Tip: Allow waffles to completely cool before placing them in zip bags for freezing to prevent them from creating steam in the bag and sticking together.

Paleo Sausage and Egg Tarts

Paleo Sausage and Egg Tarts recipeI love breakfast but standing at the stove cooking first thing in the morning does not always turn my crank! This Paleo Sausage and Egg Tarts recipe is so easy to put together and then the oven does the rest. Another benefit is that it makes a dozen tarts and they freeze well so you will have quick breakfasts or lunches on hand that you can pop in the microwave. The other nice thing is that there is very little cleanup…another thing that does not thrill me first thing in the morning.:P

Paleo Sausage and Egg Tarts

(yield 4-6 servings)

Ingredients:

12 sausage rounds (not the frozen kind-see picture below) or 1 pound sausage meat

1 carton of Garden Vegetable Egg Creations(see picture below) or 6-8 eggs beaten with diced veggies

pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F

Place one sausage round per muffin cup and use your fingers to mold it into a crust. Fill the cup 2/3 full with egg mixture. You can top with a little shredded cheese if you eat dairy. Pop those puppies into the oven and in 20-30 minutes breakfast is served! A sausage and omelet breakfast doesn’t get much easier than that.

If the same brands aren’t available where you live just look for something similar or go with the alternatives listed in the recipe. I know the sausage is not grass-fed, but I don’t have that readily available in my area so I make do with what is at hand.

Oatless Oatmeal

paleo oatless oatmealUnless you like eating omelets every morning, breakfasts can be a challenge on the Paleo diet. Personally, I find it boring to eat the same things all of the time so I try to come up with tasty alternatives that I can either whip up in a hurry or make ahead so it is readily on hand for busy mornings. This Oatless Oatmeal recipe is one that I make up on the weekend and save a dish or two to enjoy for breakfast later in the week. It only takes a few minutes to make so I could just as easily make it the day I want to have it, but I always do the bulk of my cooking on the weekend so I have more free-time on work days.

I call it Oatless Oatmeal because it is a very healthy, high protein, low carb hot cereal-like breakfast. Great for those chilly mornings! It is totally Paleo but is also great for anyone on a gluten-free or low carb diet too.

Paleo Oatless Oatmeal

(3-4 servings)

Ingredients:

1/4 c walnut or pecan meal

1/4 c flax meal

1/4 c mixed seeds and fruitĀ  (I used sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, goji berries and currants)

1/4 c shredded coconut

1 c almond milk or whole milk if you eat dairy

3 eggs

Optional: 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

Whisk the eggs into the milk. Place all dry ingredients into a saucepan. Stir in the milk/egg mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened to oatmeal consistency. Spoon into dishes and top with blueberries or strawberries. Optional: drizzle with a little honey or maple syrup if you like it a bit sweet.

Paleo Tuna Scramble Recipe

paleo tuna scramble recipeI have to admit I am not a big fish eater and I have to work hard to get 3 servings of fish into my diet every week. This Paleo Tuna Scramble recipe is one way I have found that easily incorporates fish into my diet that is both yummy and a powerhouse meal to start your day. It also makes an delicious lunch. I serve it over a bed of greens for both breakfast and lunch. That way I grab an extra serving of those important leafy greens as well.

Paleo Tuna Scramble Recipe

Ingredients:

3 oz canned tuna (1/2 can)

2 large eggs

1 tbsp water

1 cup baby spinach or chopped kale

1 clove garlic, minced

1 green onion, chopped

1 cup leaf lettuce for bedding

1 tsp flaxseed oil

Directions:

Heat a tbsp of oil in a heavy skillet and saute the garlic and tuna for a few minutes. Add the spinach or kale and cook until wilted. Beat the eggs with the water and pour into pan. Scramble until your desired texture. I like my eggs kind of dry so I cook it till most of the moisture is almost gone.

Place your leafy lettuce on a plate. Drizzle with a teaspoon or two of flaxseed oil (don’t cook this oil as it destroys it’s health properties). Top with your scramble and enjoy!
