If you know me even a little bit I am a HUGE fan of my pressure cooker.  Dishes that would normally take me 2-3 hours to make I can have done and served in under an hour.  I don’t know about you… but I am a busy Momma and Wife… but that should never stop you from making your family amazing food! Make this and you will be adored !

shoulder

4 green onions, chopped

4 garlic cloves, rough chopped

3 carrots, peeled and chopped into chunks

3 sprigs of thyme

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

½ cup stock, veg, chicken or beef

½ teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon dried basil

- Cut the roast into 4 equal parts.

- Place all your ingredients in pressure cooker and set for 50 minutes.

Squash Sauce

I have been on AIP for 29 days today… “Yeay!!!” But lets be real and face it… I am getting a bit bored.  Although my meals are tasty and usually exciting, I find myself craving more… I miss smothering my food with yummy sauces, having something to dip my veggies in or better yet a wonderful dressing for a delicious salad.  So here you have it…

1 cup roasted squash, delicata, acorn, butternut

¾ cup water

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

3 green onions

2 tablespoons cilantro

1 garlic clove

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon sea salt

- You really must use a high power blender to get a nice smooth texture.

- Keep in refrigerator for up to 10 days.

- Enjoy on pretty much anything!

Kale Cauliflower with Caramelized Onions

2 tablespoons bacon fat
3 kale leaves, processed into tiny pieces

1 whole cauliflower, rough chopped then crumbled in food processor

- Add onions, garlic and bacon fat to cast iron pan… Take your time and caramelize for at least 30 minutes.

– Place back in cast iron pan and add the ghee, kale and cauliflower.
– Sauté for 10-12 minutes and serve !
