Zwetschkenknoedel Nutty Kitchen Style

YUMMM! That’s all we can say. I grew up eating these all the time, but they were made with flour. The end of summer is perfect for these as the European plums are in season and they have just the perfect ripeness and flavor. The original dumplings are made with dough from flour and are boiled and then rolled in buttered bread crumbs, which believe me were amazing. But for those of us who can’t have gluten or simply chose not to, these are a terrific alternative. We made ours with Yuca root aka Cassava and they are just out … Continue reading Zwetschkenknoedel Nutty Kitchen Style

Pan Roasted Purple Sweet Potatoes

We love sweet potatoes, as you know. We make lots of great dishes with them, including a delicious Filipino dish called Ube, but today we are going to share a new way to enjoy these ultra delicious potatoes.  We like eating these before or after a long or high intensity workout.  Along with Taro, Green Plantains, and Cassava we consider these excellent sources of low glycemic carbohydrates (or “safe starches”).  Sweet Potatoes are also high in caratenoids, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. This dish boasts fresh ingredients, coconut oil and is jam packed with perfect carbs and glucose. Here’s what you will … Continue reading Pan Roasted Purple Sweet Potatoes

Platanos Maduros Caldenses – Colombian Sweet Plantains

This is a modified version of a very typical dish from the Caldas region of Colombia.  This may seem like a dessert, but it is always served as a side dish and usually accompanied  by rice and meat.  We were feeling a little homesick and had to indulge; yet, still managed to make this dish in a healthy Paleo 2.0 fashion.  We served ours with a King Salmon and super fresh Bok Choi from our friend Nancy’s garden with Mushrooms.  Delicious! (thank you Nancy, Rob and Kelly) Ingredients for 6 servings (1/2 plantain per serving) 3 large and very ripe (black and … Continue reading Platanos Maduros Caldenses – Colombian Sweet Plantains
