Mongolian Pork Stew


2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1/2 tsp Olive Oil
2 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Coriander
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/4 tsp Ginger


1 1/2 lb Pork (cut into cubes)
1 Cup diced Butternut Squash
14 Oz Chicken Stock
1 Cup Diced Carrots
1 Cup Chick Peas (Leave out for full-on Paleo)
1/2 Cup Chopped Onions
1/2 Cup Canned Diced Tomatoes
1 Tbsp Tomato Paste
2 tsp Garlic
1/2 tsp Hot Sauce
Punch of Cinnamon & Allspice

Marinate pork for 30 minutes-4 hours (really, the longer the better).

Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan, add the pork & fry until starting to brown. Transfer to a plate for later.

Add all the remaining ingredients to the pan.

Bring to the boil, and then reduce heat & simmer until vegetables are tender (this will be around 20-30 minutes).

Return the pork that you set aside earlier to the pan, and allow the meat to heat through (this will take somewhere around 5 minutes).


A favorite! This is so simple, and is a really tasty stew that everyone can enjoy.


You can mix up the hot sauce if you want something with a bigger kick, but as is will give you a warm (in every sense) stew that is bursting with flavor!

Paleo Carrot & Coriander Soup

2 lbs carrot
1 sprig coriander
1 large onion
1/4 cup coriander
1 dash seasoning
40 fl oz vegetable stock

Stir fry the onion in low fat cooking spray for 5 minutes. Add the sliced carrots, vegetable stock and seasoning (salt and pepper) to taste.

Simmer for 15 minutes until the carrots are tender. Add the chopped coriander.
Liquidize and serve.


Remarkable how something so simple can yield such delicious results! A definite winner for both the simple cook and the soup enthusiast.


You can add ham (or bacon) for a little twist. Also, Olive Oil works fine if you don't have a low fat spray. Adding a clove or two (to taste) of garlic with the onions rounds off the flavour nicely,
