    Serve as a combo or à la carte!

    Although I can’t think of a reason you’d want to serve them separately (hello BFF steak and fries), here are some tips to ensure each of your individual dishes is lovely and yummy.

    For the Paleo Reverse Seared Steak, I strongly recommend looking for a thicker cut (ideally 2-inch thickness) so that the steak will stay tender and juicy throughout the cooking process.

    Ribeye is an awesome choice here. Be sure to read through the cooking steps and time so that the steak will stay tender and juicy.

    The Shoestring Smoky Sweet Potato Fries are a crowd pleaser. I love their crunchy baked texture. It reminds me of Cantonese-style crispy chow mein but healthier!

    Spiralizing in order to create the longest, most beautiful noodles. You can also slice the potatoes into halves to apply more pressure to push the noodles through the Spiralizer.

    To add more instant flavor pop to your everyday sautéed vegetables, adding a few teaspoons of grated ginger stored in the freezer will kick plain old veggie sauté to the next level!

    It’s simple: Store a small piece of ginger in a small container in the freezer. Grate it using a microplane (as if you’re grating Parmigiano cheese) over warm kale (or any veggie sauté). It’ll instantly add more Asian-inspired flavor to your veggie sauté.

    • 2 tbsp avocado oil
    • 2 tbsp ghee

    Difficulty: Easy Recipe Type: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Nut-Free, Whole30, Vegetarian
    Prep Time 10 mins
    Cook Time 5 mins
    Total Time 15 mins
    Serves 2

    Ingredients

    • 1 large bunch curly kale (about 10-12 oz), stemmed, with leaves coarsely chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 1-2 tsp grated ginger*
    • Coarse salt, to taste
    • 1-2 tbsp avocado oil

    Directions

    Preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, lower the heat to medium and add 1 to 2 tablespoons avocado oil and chopped garlic.

    Season with a small pinch of salt and sauté until fragrant, about 6-8 seconds.

    Add chopped kale and keep sautéing until the leaves turn darker green but are not withered. Season with another small pinch of salt.

    Turn off the heat and while the skillet is still hot, grate about 1-2 teaspoons ginger over kale. (Use more if you like.) Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.

    Recipe Notes

    *Sometimes it’s difficult to figure out how to store small pieces of leftover ginger. In this case, I freeze them and use them for grating. The frozen ginger, once grated, gives a light gingery flavor pop to sautéed veggies.
