Chopped Liver

Chopped liver is the Jewish version of chicken liver mousse. It’s simpler, heartier, less refined, and kosher because it doesn’t contain butter or cream.

Chopped liver is delicious – and very healthy. A 163-calorie serving provides you with 12 grams of protein, 125% of your daily vitamin A requirement, 150% B-12, 80% folate, around half your daily requirement of riboflavin and selenium, and around a third of your daily requirement of iron, niacin and pantothenic acid.

I like to add garlic to my chopped liver, a departure from tradition, but I have yet to find a meat dish that isn’t enhanced by a little garlic. Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Flatbread

A delicious grilled cheese sandwich, made with gluten free flatbread. The flatbread is actually savory pancakes, made with coconut flour. So this is not exactly bread in terms of taste and texture, but still tasty and melty and highly pleasurable. Click for the recipe

Enchilada Casserole

This enchilada casserole has all the flavors of enchiladas, without the ton of carbs. Simply layer cooked chicken, chile peppers, enchilada sauce and cheddar, omit the beans and the tortillas, and bake until hot and bubbly. And even though real chicken enchiladas are better, for those of us trying to limit carbs, this is a very tasty option. Click for the recipe

Pumpkin Waffles

Oh, the wonderful smell that fills your kitchen when you cook these pumpkin waffles! And they taste wonderful too – crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, subtly sweet, with a distinct-but-not-overwhelming pumpkin and cinnamon flavor. I don’t sweeten the batter at all, so plan on serving these pumpkin waffles with maple syrup – a tablespoon per waffle is plenty. Click for the recipe

Fried Cauliflower Rice

This fried cauliflower rice is amazing! Try serving it to unsuspecting guests and they’ll never guess it’s made of cauliflower. Really, really good. And while we now know that rice that has been cooked, cooled and then fried contains beneficial resistant starch, for some of us, the carb load from a plate of fried rice is still too much, and this fried cauliflower rice is a great, tasty alternative.

beef with borccoli

An easy, delicious dish of beef with broccoli, thanks to using pre-sliced sirloin strips (sold at many grocery stores as “beef for stir fry/stroganoff”) and frozen broccoli florets. I use konjac flour to thicken the sauce, buy if you don’t mind cornstarch, you can use that instead. Click for the recipe

Paleo Breakfast Bread

This paleo breakfast bread is packed with healthy fats and protein, yet it has the taste and texture of honey cake. I had my doubts when I saw the ingredients list, but magically, the ingredients did transform into a delicious bread with a tender crumb and a pleasant honey flavor.

If you celebrate the Jewish New Year, this Paleo breakfast bread is the perfect gluten-free alternative to the traditional honey cake. Click for the recipe
