Mexican Crispy Chicken Livers

Ingredients:

1 lb organic free range chicken livers   

1⁄3 cup coconut, tapioca, cassava, or arrowroot flour   

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp garlic powder

3/4 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp chilli powder

3⁄4 tsp himalayan salt   

1⁄4 tsp pepper  

2 Tbsp coconut oil   

Garnish: Fresh squeezed lemon and chopped cilantro

Directions:

Cut chicken livers into 2-inch pieces and pat dry

In a small bowl, mix flour, paprika, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper with a fork until blended. Pour the seasoned flour into a large ziplock bag, add the chicken livers, and shake gently until coated evenly. Option to mix the chicken liver pieces directly in the bowl until coated evenly.

In a large saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil over medium heat. Add about half the chicken livers in a single layer — try to arrange them so they don’t touch. Allow the bottom to brown well and form a crisp crust, about 3-5 minutes.

Using tongs, flip the livers, and brown the other side. Set aside to drain on paper towels while you cook the second batch. You may need to add more coconut oil to the pan.

Place the livers on a serving plate and garnish with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of chopped fresh cilantro.

KMB Stew

Ingredients:

2 cups mung beans, soaked for at least 3 hours, drained and rinsed

1.5 cups bone broth, heated

1.5 cups water, boiled

1/4 cup avocado oil or coconut oil

1 medium onion, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 Tbsp ginger, finely grated

2 sweet potatoes, chopped into small cubes

2 stalks celery, finely chopped

2 carrots, finely chopped

1 bunch kale, roughly chopped

1 tsp turmeric powder

Cayenne pepper, to taste

Himalayan salt or celtic sea salt, to taste

Directions:

Put the beans in a medium saucepan and add just enough water to cover the beans.

Place on stove and bring to a boil. If you get some white foam on the top, scoop that off.

Once boiling, let simmer on low-medium heat for 15 minutes, or until the water has evaporated and the beans become soft.

While the beans are cooking, in a large saucepan add the oil, onion, garlic and ginger. Cook until the onion is translucent.

Add in the sweet potatoes, carrots, celery, turmeric powder, cayenne pepper, and cook for 5 minutes, occasionally stirring.

Add the mung beans and cook for another 5 minutes to incorporate everything.

Pour in the bone broth and boiled water.

Add the kale, stirring for a minute or two.

Add salt to taste and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the veggies are soft.

 

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Ingredients:

1 medium cauliflower

1 egg, beaten

1/3 cup soft goat cheese

1 tsp dried oregano

pinch of himalayan salt

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400F.

To make the cauliflower rice, pulse batches of raw cauliflower florets in a food processor or a high speed blender, until a rice-like texture is achieved.

Fill a large pot with about an inch of water, and bring it to a boil. Add the “rice” and cover; let it cook for about 4-5 minutes. Drain into a fine-mesh strainer.

Once you’ve strained the rice, transfer it to a clean, thin dishtowel. Wrap up the steamed rice in the dishtowel, twist it up, then SQUEEZE all the excess moisture out. It’s amazing how much extra liquid will be released, which will leave you with a nice and dry pizza crust.

In a large bowl, mix up your strained rice, beaten egg, goat cheese, and spices. Don’t be afraid to use your hands. You want it very well mixed.

Press the dough out onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. It’s important that it’s lined with parchment paper, or it will stick. Keep the dough about ⅓” thick, and make the edges a little higher for a “crust” effect, if you like.

Bake for 35-40 minutes at 400F. The crust should be firm, and golden brown when finished.

Now it's time to add all of your favourites – organic pizza sauce, and any other toppings you like.

Ideas for toppings: Spinach, basil, artichokes, sundried tomato, olives, broccoli, zucchini, mushroom

Return the pizza to the 400F oven, and bake an additional 8-10 minutes

Slice and serve immediately

Wild Lemon Dill Salmon

Ingredients:

1.5 lb wild sockeye salmon

1 Tbsp lemon zest

2 Tbsp grass-fed ghee

1 Tbsp fresh dill, chopped

1 lemon

Himalayan salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Coat the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish with grass-fed ghee

Rinse the salmon and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in the prepared dish.

Mix together the ghee (room temperature), lemon zest and dill.

Place about half the mixture on top of the seasoned salmon. You can spread the lemon dill mixture or leave it in dollops

Bake for about 10-15 minutes. The salmon will continue cooking even after you take it out of the oven. You will want to check on it after about 10 minutes because the time will vary based on the thickness of the salmon.

Add the remaining ghee/dill/lemon zest mixture on top, add a squeeze of lemon juice and serve with lemon slices and dill for garnish.

Lemon Artichoke Pesto Pasta

Ingredients:

1 lb boneless, skinless organic free-range chicken breasts or thighs, cubed

1 large spaghetti squash, cut in half lengthwise

12 artichoke hearts, cut in half

1/2 cup walnuts

4 cups fresh spinach

4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

4 Tbsp bone broth

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup fresh parsley

1/2 cup fresh basil

1 lemon, juiced

Himalayan salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Cut the squash in half lengthwise, place cut side down on a baking sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes or until squash gives when you poke the outside of it.

Use a spoon to remove the excess seeds then a fork to thread the strings from the squash to make spaghetti.

While the squash is baking, make the pesto and chicken.

Place a large pan over medium heat, add a splash of oil and 1 minced garlic clove. As soon as the garlic becomes fragrant, add the halved artichokes and let cook until slightly tender on all sides.

Once artichokes are cooked, add them to a food processor along with the walnuts, olive oil, bone broth, and second garlic clove. Puree until smooth.

Then add the parsley, basil, lemon, and salt and pepper. Puree once more until smooth. Taste and add more lemon and salt and pepper to your preference.

Once pesto is done pureeing, add the chicken to the same pan that you sautéed the artichokes in.

Cook chicken over medium heat until browned on all sides. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper.

Once chicken is cooked through, add in about ¼ of a cup of the pesto to the chicken along with the spinach, in the pan and mix well to coat. Cover and let cook for 2-4 minutes or until spinach is soft.

Then add the threads of spaghetti squash to the pan (or a large mixing bowl if you need more room). Mix spaghetti squash, pesto, and chicken together.

Serve with some fresh basil on top.
