Coconut Lime Chicken Soup Recipe

CocoLimeCK

 

My Foodie Penpal outdid herself this month!  She sent me this recipe and almost everything to make it…  I’m not going to lie, normally this isn’t something I would make.   I’m not a coconut fan, I’d never had coconut milk, and honestly I would be intimidated by the name.  Sounds like something way too fancy for me to make!  However, since I had everything and HATE figuring out what to do for dinner, I went for it.  I am SO glad I did!!!

If you haven’t tried coconut milk, it’s really good!  Even though I don’t really like coconut…  Cheryl has officially made me believe that if I get stuck on an island I could indeed deal with the coconut milk!  Yay, I won’t starve!  (I’m not a big seafood fan, LOL)  Now I just have to figure out how to open them and remember!  LOL.

Cheryl pointed out that this recipe is very versatile, so feel free to modify it!  Also, I loved it so much that I ended up eating some of the leftovers for breakfast the next day.  I tried it cold—> still AMAZING!!!  So this soup really can be served hot OR cold!

Anyway, the recipe is courtesy of Miss Cheryl from Florida and her awesome July Foodie Penpal Box 2013.  A HUGE thank you, Mrs. Cheryl, because the soup is amazing and one of my new favorites!!!

Ingredients:

1/2 pkg dried flat rice noodles

3 1/2 cups GF chicken broth

1 1/2″ piece of ginger, sliced

1 (13oz) can coconut milk (full fat is better, but can use light)

2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced

6 Tbsp lime juice

3 Tbsp fish sauce

2 tsp brown sugar

1/2-1 jalapeno, thinly sliced OR 5-10 jarred jalapenos chopped

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped

Directions:

Break noodles into thirds (a little bigger than bite size), then prepare

noodles according to package. Drain and set aside.

In a large pot, bring broth and ginger to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and

simmer for 10 minutes then add coconut milk and chicken.

Once chicken is completely cooked (about 5 minutes), add the remaining

ingredients and simmer another 10 mintues. Season to taste with salt if

necessary.

Add noodles just before serving.

Not Your Momma’s Tuna

Power Tuna.  Paleo Auto-Immune Tuna. Low fat. Super Healthy.

This is not your Momma’s tuna but it is absolutely delicious.Fabulous Tuna! No fat! Just goodness!  Auto Immune Diet and Paleo friendly! With amazing flavor!

 

I recently had a doctor decide that he hates me and wanted me to start the auto-immune diet.  If you haven’t heard of it, it’s like Paleo on life hates you mode.  And I’m not at all dramatic, so there!  The auto-immune diet is designed to do a lot for ones body, helps with swelling issues and tons more.  He seems to think it will help with my cataplexy.  Medications don’t do it, so here we go with this.

Honestly, at this point I have not been loyal to it.  I’ll be honest.  I’m not giving up coffee and flavored creamer.  Just not gonna do it.  Have been doing better though.  For the last two weeks I’ve stuck very well to the paleo, with the above being my exception.  Well, almost the only exception.  LOL.

Regardless, here is this amazing recipe.  It’s not your Momma’s tuna, but it is fabulously yummy!  I was dying for tuna and the mayo being outlawed from paleo I started trying some of the recipes from Pinterest but was not digging the flavor.  It was missing something.  So I played and modified.  Here goes!

Not Your Momma’s Tuna Recipe

  • 1 can Tuna
  • ½ avocado
  • 3 TBSP lemon juice
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp fajita seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3 TBSP Diced celery
  • 1 TBSP diced green onion (red would be great too)
  • 1 TBSP diced sweet pepper
  1. Drain tuna.  Add avocado and mix.
  2. Add seasoning and vinegar, stir.  Whip together, don’t smash at this point!
  3. Mix in the remaining ingredients.
  4. You can serve or eat it however you’d like it, but I really enjoyed it on celery!

If you are looking for some other recipes that are amazingly healthy and yummy, check out my recipe for pitas!  They aren’t paleo, they are super delicious!  You could eat them without the pitas and they’d totally be paleo, or at least I think chick peas are paleo. lol.
