I am catching up on ‘Pimping The Beast’ posts. I don’t know why I didn’t post this on time, I have had a bunch of Posts sitting in my Drafts waiting to be published.
Catching you up,
Here is the first of many ‘Paleo’ recipes I have to share with you.
Now because it is freeking cold here in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, with it being Winter and all, I got myself motivated to get my ‘Soup’ on!
If I were committing to a Primal diet, then I would hitting up creamy soups that really scream ‘Hot fires, winter woolys and blankets covering those knees’. However, for a Paleo diet, there is no such thing as cream(from a cow) (quietly boo’ing).
Instead I have come across this wee number, it had the word ‘Creamy’ in the title, so as you could imagine, I was all over it.
I have had it twice, and I really enjoy it! But while it tastes of creamy goodness, it doesn’t really have a creamy texture.
Other than that, it is a keeper on my list of paleo awesomeness!
It looks a bit rough, and the coconut cream can become curdled, so I add it 5 or so minutes before eating time. But if the curdled look doesn’t bother you, just follow the method as mentioned.
Super cheap too!
I found the recipe on everydaypaleo.com.
“Creamy” Chicken Tomato Soup
6oo grams skinless boneless chicken breast
Garlic salt to taste
2 tablespoons Italian Seasoning
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 clove garlic
410ml can of coconut milk (full fat)
400g. can diced tomatoes and juice
1 cup of chicken stock
Sea Salt and pepper to taste
Put all the above ingredients into the crock-pot, cook for 9 hours on low. After 9 hours take two forks and shred the chicken, set the crock-pot on warm till ready to serve (making sure to taste it before serving to make sure there is enough salt and pepper)
I think, even if you are not following a paleo diet, this one is a goody, it is good on the pocket and on the figure!
At roughly 6 servings this works out to be approximately 208 Cals per serve.
