This is how lunch goes very often. What was for dinner last night? Oh yeah. Pork ribs. Do I want that again? …. No. How can I make it taste differently and delicious? And then new little recipes are born!
The key to amazing Paleo recipes is to not be afraid to think outside the box. There’s no reason you have to eat grilled chicken and sweet potatoes every night, although I do that far too often. Because I like it. In this recipe I used local raised pork, local goat cheese (chèvre), organic spinach, and tomatoes from our family garden! It’s so exciting to go outside and pick a few tomatoes. I wrapped it all up in a Paleo Wrap. These wraps are going to be your favorite new staple, if you haven’t tried them already.
This summer working at Opal Basil, I’ve gotten quicker in the kitchen and better at using random ingredients to make dishes. The Chef told me to start treating the refrigerator like my closet. To me I think that he meant to get comfortable with using everything in there. Don’t forget accessories. And of course, make the finished product look GOOD. I can’t say I’d give myself an A+ on this recipe’s aesthetic appeal. It could probably use some garnish. But the flavor was yum yum yum.
