Our Paleo BBQ

My niece Jess is on this (crazy) Paleo diet.  Being the supportive Auntie that I am, I have plunged into the paleo cooking adventure and am scouring the web for fun new recipes!

Here are some great Paleo recipes we served up at our bbq!

Main course:  I marinated portobello mushrooms and red peppers in balsamic vinaigrette dressing and grilled on the bbq.  Once done, we wrapped them in romaine lettuce.   SO easy!

Side dishes:

I made “guacamole salad.”  So easy and simple.  I chopped up avocados and tomatoes and added a bit of sea salt and lime juice to taste.  That’s it.

Finally, for dessert, we made paleo hostess cupcakes and pumpkin “ice cream.”  They were….well…..paleo.  They have maple syrup in them.  Alot of maple syrup.  But if you’re hankering for a sweet treat and you’re doing the paleo thing, they’re worth the effort.
