Well I’m back with another book review – this time a Paleo specific book called The Paleo Chef by Pete Evans. This 200+ page book is filled with beautiful photos and delicious, unique recipes. I loved seeing his different takes on even basic things like salmon or fried fish. Evans has a way of adding a chef’s flair without making the recipe overly complicated or too strange (because you know you’ve seen those recipes that leave you wondering “what is that ingredient? I’ve never heard of that!”)
I loved his recipe for Roasted Winter Vegetables (I’m a big parsnip fan!) that included a whole head of garlic (yum!). We also enjoyed the recipe for Surf & Turf Tacos. This one threw the kids for a loop at first. They couldn’t get over having shrimp in their tacos. My hubby and I, on the other hand, dove right in and they were fantastic!
A few of the recipes do get a little involved and might have some things that a more novice Paleo eater might be unsure of (like the Chocolate Beet Mudcakes that involve beets, currants, dates, flax & more), however there are plenty of delicious options that are great for beginners (Chocolate Brownies!!!). You can check out some of his other recipes on his blog.
