What I Liked about Mediterranean Paleo
The information about the authors, their backgrounds, and approach to food really got me into the mood to try the recipes. Even more impressive was the wonderful information that the authors shared about Mediterranean cuisine, what they'd learned about health and lifestyle, and how to put together Mediterranean and Paleo cooking. What comes from this fusion is over a hundred very tasty, healthy recipes that you can eat or serve to company.
My favorite recipe is roasted garlic cauliflower hummus. When you first are on the elimination diet, you can't eat beans. I was looking for something quick to eat when I was hungry and busy. The cauliflower hummus had a great texture, nice flavor, and was great with lightly blanched veggie sticks (I don't get much benefit from completely raw veggies because I had a gut reroute years ago.). If you eat completely raw veggies, keeping some of the cauliflower hummus on hand is a huge time saver.
What I Would Improve about Mediterranean Paleo
There are recommendations for using a slow cooker for many of the recipes. I did try this, and I would caution you that the slow cooker versions are not "drop in the pot and let 'er cook." You need to brown the meat, toast the spices, etc., in order to have similar results to stove top cooking. Sometimes this means a few more dirty pots or pans to wash, but it was worth it to improve the overall texture and flavor of the food. So, I wish the authors had emphasized this more in the "busy people's prep" instructions.
I just purchased one of the latest makes of pressure cookers, and I haven't had a moment to try these recipes in the pressure cooker, but I'm thinking that browning and toasting is going to be useful when I do.
Overall Rating for Mediterranean Paleo
I would give this cookbook five stars for anyone who is paleo, whole30, yeast reducing, or on any sort of an allergy elimination eating plan. The recipes are tasty, easy to use, and have ingredients that fit in these eating plans very easily.
paleo pizza crust- delicious, easy to make and definitely a go-to recipe.
fig and ginger tajine- I loved the sweet flavor of the figs, would have loved to have a crispy skin on the chicken, so I think I will put it in the broiler next time but the flavor combination was divine.
Carmelized onion soup- OH.MY.GOSH- I loved this and have thought about it again less than a week later.
savory chicken kabobs- these were delicious! and the marinade was easy to make.
Paleo moussaka- again another great dish.
Siva's meatballs and cauliflower- this was a comforting, homey, perfect easy weeknight dish. I really enjoyed it and the leftovers.
Overall, the recipes have been great. My only criticism would be that most dishes have needed extra salt but that is largely a personal preference. The book is so stunning though, I love to pull it out just to look through the pages and am looking forward to trying many more recipes in the future!
