Here’s another easy recipe that uses the slow cooker. I continue to sing the praises of using a slow cooker because it cooks the food at low-ish temperatures, it is so fracking easy to use, and using a slow cooker saves tons of time. This recipe, like many of mine lately, is slim on ingredients because I really love letting the fresh ingredients speak for themselves. I didn’t add garlic or anything (although the jar of sauce I use includes some lovely flavors with basil, onion, etc).
Crunchy organic cabbage + sweet oranges + creamy dressing —–> a unique and delicious salad.
Almond Butter Coleslaw
Yields 4 to 6 servings
- 3/4 cup raw almond milk
- 1/2 cup raw almond butter
- 2 tablespoons raw coconut vinegar or apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- dash of freshly ground pepper
- 1 head purple cabbage, cored and chopped (or shredded)
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- 4 oranges, peeled, seeded, and chopped
- 1 handful raisins
- 7 olives, pitted and chopped
In a blender, combine the raw almond milk, raw almond butter, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth.
In a large bowl, combine the cabbage, tomatoes, oranges, raisins, and olives and toss to mix.
Add the dressing and toss until the dressing coats the salad ingredients.
When we buy grass fed red meat, we opt for both grass fed bison and grass fed beef. Bison is reputed to have lower fat and cholesterol than beef (not that I’m concerned about that though – we just appreciate variety). So, when cooking with bison, I’ll often increase the fat in my dish by adding avocado, grass fed butter, or coconut oil.
Here’s another easy recipe using a slow cooker (one of my favorite kitchen appliances, you all must know that by now though, right?) that delights my entire family. It’s just a handful of ingredients because that’s all you really need for delicious home cooked food.
This delicious, healthy, and gluten-free recipe was adapted from Dr. Weil’s Carrot-Banana Muffins in his True Food cookbook. If you want it paleo style, then use the coconut oil option over the butter oil options.
Glory Muffins is one of our favorite muffin recipes because the flavor is wonderful and the different textures make for a fun experience. You should definitely make these.
I just had what must have been the easiest recipe in the world. As a result, I’m on the computer blogging about it because this easy recipe freed up so much time that I can share it with you.
Back story: I ordered grass fed bison short ribs a couple of months back, but they stayed in my freezer for so long because, frankly, I was intimidated by them. I’d never made ribs or short ribs, and I had no idea where to begin. Well, that’s not true. I did know where to begin. 1) My Slow Cooker and 2) Google.
My new motto… when in doubt, slow cooker.
