As most of you know, we just welcomed our second son into the world and our family. I have invited some of my favorite bloggers to share guest posts with us every Friday for the next couple of months while I decrease my workload and focus on integrating our newest little person into our family.
Be excited because not only are these amazing bloggers to discover but they will be sharing some pretty fabulous Real Food recipes, kitchen tips and tricks and even crafts!
Today, we welcome Louise Hendon from PaleoMagazine.com. She is also the author of the recently released Essential Paleo Cookbook. Thank you to both Louise and her husband Jeremy for sharing this quick and easy Paleo Hash!
I love simple recipes! The fewer ingredients and steps, the better.
We (my husband Jeremy & I) used to make a lot of very complicated dishes. And it was a lot of fun. But we kept finding that we’d often run out of time to make those complex recipes at times when we just needed something quick to eat for dinner.
Well, in many of those moments where we’re running out of time, we start rummaging through our refrigerator and pantry to see what we have and what might go together. And often, even when what we have is not what “typically” goes together, an amazing dish emerges.
This is one of those dishes, and when you taste it, you’ll understand why it doesn’t need any additional ingredients. The apple and carrots soften, and their natural sugars ooze out to mingle with the coconut oil making you savor every single bite of this dish.
The whole dish takes just 20 minutes, and it’s super easy to double or triple in size if you have a lot of people around for dinner.
Perfect as a tasty side dish, a snack, or for breakfast!
