Paleo, Whole30 Recipe: Jicama, Carrot & Radish Slaw with Ginger Tahini Salad Dressing by Natural Hormone Healing

 

jicama-carrot-radish-slaw-with-ginger-tahini-salad-dressingThe jicama slaw on top of the Kalamata Lamb Burgers with Mint Pesto that I posted earlier today looked like cheese….not Whole30! But, alas, it was trusty ol’ gut-healing jicama found in this to-die-for Jicama, Carrot & Radish Slaw by Madeline of @naturalhormonehealing.

I highly recommend making this salad as it contains prebiotics (which feed your gut good bacteria) and….it is really tasty. I placed it plain atop my lamb burger, but try it with the Ginger Tahini Salad Dressing…mmm!

RECIPE

JICAMA, CARROT & RADISH SLAW WITH GINGER TAHINI SALAD DRESSING (serves 6 as side dishes)

INGREDIENTS:

SLAW:

1 medium to large jicama, peeled & quartered
2 large carrots, peeled
1 bunch of red radishes (8-10)

DRESSING:

1 Tbs. of tahini (sesame seed paste, sold with nut butters and often in the Kosher section at your market)
1/3 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. of Dijon mustard
1 tsp. of coconut aminos
1 tsp. of Red Boat fish sauce
1″ of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
Garnish: micro greens

INSTRUCTIONS:

In a salad bowl, grate the jicama, carrot and radish (or use the shredding attachment on your food processor).

In a high-speed blender, mix all the dressing ingredients until the dressing is creamy and well combined.

Stir the dressing into the slaw.

Garnish with a handful of micro greens.

This salad will store in your fridge for 5 days. I love it and will feast from it throughout the week.

liver-with-caramelized-onions-by-natural-hormone-healing

I have big news! I’m in love with…liver!

But…only when it is cooked deliciously!

Of course!

I recently made this liver and caramelized onion recipe by Madeline of @naturalhormonehealing and was shocked at how easy it was to make…and it tasted so good!

Give it a try, it might become a staple on and off your Whole30!

RECIPE:

LIVER WITH CARAMELIZED ONIONS (serves 2-4)

INGREDIENTS:

1-2 Tbs. of coconut oil or ghee
1 small onion, chopped into half moon rings
2/3 lb. of bison, beef or elk liver
Smoked paprika, to sprinkle on top of liver (omit to keep this AIP, try adding garlic powder instead)
Sea salt and white pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

Saute onion rings in cooking fat until caramelized (this takes about 20 minutes if cooking on low heat in a skillet).
Remove caramelized onions and set aside.

Turn up the heat in your skillet to medium high.

Pat liver dry with a paper towel and place on the heated skillet.

Sprinkle smoked paprika, sea salt and white pepper on one side, and sear for 2-3 minutes, flip, sprinkle more smoked paprika, sea salt and white pepper on the other side and sear another 2-3 minutes (slightly pink in the middle is how you want to serve it).

Once cooked, serve the liver topped with caramelized onion and a side salad or steamed greens and an optional grain-free carb such as sweet potato, butternut squash, potato or parsnips.

I hope you try this recipe, I think you will really love it!
