As you may have noticed, tiger nuts are popping up all over the place in the Paleo community — specifically Organic Gemini brand. What you may not know is that tiger buts are not actually nuts, they're tubers (or small root vegetables). They're an excellent source of prebiotic fiber, which becomes fuel for probiotic bacteria. One ounce of tigernuts has 40% of your recommended daily fiber. In other words, they're good for the belly! They have a slightly sweet and nutty flavor, reminiscent of coconut, and make for a delicious milk. Try it in your tea or coffee.
Yield: 2 cups
Jackson's Honest Sweet Potato Chips
Coconut Sour Cream
1 can AIP compliant coconut milk (I used Natural Value), chilled
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
Salt to taste
Refrigerate can of coconut milk for at least 2 hours. Spoon out coconut cream at top of can and add to a medium bowl. Add vinegar or lemon juice, olive oil, and salt. Mix until combined and season to taste with salt. Let chill for 30 minutes before serving.
1 ripe avocado
1/2 small white onion, diced
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
Red onion and cilantro leaves for garnish
In a small bowl, mash together the cilantro, onion and salt with a sturdy wooden spoon until it forms a thick, juicy paste. Scoop flesh from avocado and add to bowl. Mix to combine.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pound grass-fed ground beef
Salt to taste
Heat a medium skillet over medium- high heat for 30 seconds. Add olive oil. Add onions and sauté until translucent, approximately 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add ground beef and break up with a spatula or wooden spoon. Season with salt (I use a lot!). Cook beef until browned, approximately 10 minutes, stirring often.
Lay sweet potato chips on a large plate. Top with ground beef mixture and guacamole. Drizzle with coconut sour cream and top with red onion and torn cilantro leaves.
I didn't want to feel left out of the gluttonous festivities this past Super Bowl Sunday, nor did I want to spend hours in the kitchen prepping snacks for myself. A pre-made bag of AIP compliant chips (like the addictive Jackson's Honest Sweet Potato Chips) made whipping up a batch of nachos take only minutes!
