Happy Valentine’s Day! 

Forky Friday: 2/14/14 by Michelle Tam http://nomnompaleo.com

Because I heart you guys so much, I’m going to treat y’all to a special Forky Friday roundup of recipes from my new cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans, that have been reprinted (with permission!) around the web. Some of ’em (like my Bone Broth and Slow Cooker Kalua Pig) are classics that are familiar to loyal readers, but many of these recipes have never before appeared on my site, including my umami-packed Magic Mushroom Powder and Macadamia Nut “Ricotta.” You won’t find these exclusive recipes on my blog’s Recipe Index, so bookmark this post and share it with your friends.

Alright—enough of the jibber-jabber. On to the recipes!

Asian Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

This is one of my signature dishes, so there was zero chance of me leaving it out of my cookbook. Since the book’s release, I’ve loved seeing how my fried “rice” has been re-created (and in some cases, re-imagined!) by some of my favorite bloggers, including Diana Rodgers of Sustainable Dish, Kate Williams at Serious Eats, and Jaden Hair of Steamy Kitchen.

Check out this video of Jaden’s wonderfully pared-down riff on my recipe:

Bone Broth

Are you sick of hearing me extol the virtues of meaty bone broth?

Well, too bad, because I’m here to tell you to read this Serious Eats article about my recipe, in which my bone broth is put to the test.

PSA: I Love L’Amourette 91% Cacao Extra Smooth Chocolat Noir

Pin It

It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of dark, dark, dark chocolate. (Back off, Paleo Police. Chocolate’s one of my only indulgences; it puts some spring in this old zombie’s step.) There are a couple of unsweetened 100% cacao bars I enjoy (like the Domori Il 100%), but my favorite bars have just a smidge of sugar to balance out the bitterness. Sadly, I’ve been disappointed by most of the 90+% cacao bars on the market. Most bars contain soy lecithin or taste too harsh or have an unpleasantly chalky texture. Or they’re too dang pricey. 

But then kismet struck.
