Any suggestions for vegetarian paleo recipes?

I live with my fiance, who is a vegetarian-leaning pescetarian. I'm a safe starch friendly paleo eater.

Any tips for where to find grain-free vegetarian recipes? Obviously vegetables and fish are points of agreement for us.

Definitely, those are the exact same utensils that I use too. I just re-read that you asked for vegetarian paleo grain free, and all I read when I first posted this was paleo grain free, If I had to rewrite this I might do it mostly the same except grill some salmon and fry or bake some potato wedges in coconut oil instead of french fries. I'm glad you liked it though =[).

There is a whole list of vegan paleo friendly recipes here http://www.vegiehead.com/vegan-paleo-recipes.html.

I have that entire page bookmarked, especially for the paleo friendly desserts (I can't help my sweeth tooth!). It also adds a nice variety to your meals.

This site also has some good info on recipe and meal plan ideas http://paleodiet.risap.com/a-typical-paleo-meal-plan-for-the-day/

Begin Edit My apologies, I just reread and realized you asked for a vegetarian meal, Try the french fries, you will love them, they are vegetarian and paleo, but as for the burger, or what you eat the french fries with, if you are eating beans, maybe make a bean burger, or some sort of nut wrap maybe, sorry I didn't expect to see vegetarian on paleo site, hope you understand and still try the fries, my sister is vegan but loves them lol. End Edit

Burgers and Fries have been one of my favourite meals since... ever.

I finally found a paleo way to make them too.

Utensils:


Mandolin any-suggestions-for-vegetarian-paleo-recipes?


Deep Fryer any-suggestions-for-vegetarian-paleo-recipes?


Ingredients:

Burger: Lettuce Tomato Pickles Beef (Grass-Fed) any other paleo condiments or toppings.

Fries: Potatoes / Sweet Potatoes Coconut Oil (lard might work, but I haven't tried lard yet and if you get lard make sure it's not hydrogenated!!)

Instructions: Put the coconut oil in the deepfryer and turn the temperature to 325 (be careful to keep it below 350 so you can reuse it in the case of extra virgin coconut oil [it's expensive otherwise]). Use the mandolin to make your fries (takes 2 minutes with a 5$ mandolin from Ross or Amazon). Cook the fries in the coconut oil at 325 for 13 minutes.

Cook your hamburgers to taste. Dress your hamburger Wrap it in the big lettuce leaves (instead of buns, alternatively you could make nut flour bread, but that's way too much work for me right now).

Salt the french fries to taste. Umm, like, I love ketchup so.... yea, lol, omg those fries taste good though. DONE

PS (if you make sweet potato fries they tend to be dryer so they cook faster [325 for 6-9 minutes]).

Enjoy!!

PSS This is a really easy meal if you have the deepfryer and the mandolin, like start to finish maybe 20 minutes. And it tastes omg good. Coconut oil french fries are the bomb. They are really firm and still really mushy in the middle, if you like fries you'll love these and at this temperature you can definitely reuse the oil several times (until it turns an off color when cooling, you'll be able to tell if it's gone rancid).

Eggs baked in avocado Pesto and egg stuffed tomatoes Zuppa di Baccala

I also find a lot of great vegetarian/paleo recipes in the Raw vegan community. They tend to be no grain/no frankenfoods so It's a great resource. I really think eggs should be the major staple in a vegetarian paleo diet. Throw egg yolks in EVERYTHING. Put it in broth, soups, veggies, smoothies... anything. It adds delicious creaminess and richness to almost anything. My toddler isn't a big meat eater so It's my main way of getting all those delicious fats and vitamins in to him.

Salmon bisque! This recipe calls for heavy cream, but if you don't do dairy I think a coconut product would be a good substitute. (And obviously switch out the canola oil. It's not a Paleo site, but a lot of the recipes seem adaptable.) I have made a few versions of this, playing with the spices a bit. My favorite is with a little extra spice and blackening the salmon. It was also good with tex-mex spices and cilantro-lime-chile salmon.

EDIT: Adding on sweet potato bleu cheese gratin http://projects.eveningedge.com/recipes/sweet-potato-cabrales-blue-cheese-gratin/ (if you do dairy. I don't know if coconut stuff would be an okay substitute in something like this.)

Also, stuffed and baked acorn squash (at this time of the year!) I like them stuffed with sausage and kale, but you could also do mushroom and your favorite greens or something. Be creative! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/roasted-acorn-squash-with-mushrooms-peppers-and-goat-cheese-recipe/index.html Kinda like this, cheese optional.

I enjoy these spinach burgers (I leave out the bread crumbs and it works fine): http://thevillagecook.com/spinach-burgers/

There are a bunch of delicious stuffed portebello mushroom recipes, like this one: http://afoodcentriclife.com/stuffed-portobello-mushrooms-with-roast-tomatoes-and-goat-cheese/

And for a more substantial meal, perhaps a tasty fish curry: http://steamykitchen.com/14700-indian-fish-coconut-curry.html

Look into SCD (Specific Carbohydrate Diet) recipes. SCD is very similar to Paleo, more restrictive, in fact. There are tons of great veg SCD recipes online. I also often just search SCD "broccoli" or whatever I have on hand to cook, and find great recipes. SCD does allow legumes and beans though, and I don't think Paleo does, so look out for that.

Another type of food to research is Raw Vegan food. There are lots of yummy grain-free recipes knocking about in that community, and they're all veg-friendly (obviously). There are also some fun, creative cooking techniques to elarn about. I have found it difficult to locate too many recipes specified as "Paleo" that work for a veg, but they are out there.

The main thing is to have a good working knowledge of what you are allowing yourself to eat or not (or more importantly, what your body will tolerate), and alter recipes as needed (sub coconut milk for regular milk, coarsely ground nuts or shredded carrots for ground beef, etc.) Also get creative with substituting out the meat in some recipes.

Good luck!
