I have read criticism that eating “Paleo” is too expensive. Personally, I think poor health is too expensive. If you are looking to increase your nutrition and lower your food budget, think organ meat.
I made up a recipe for chicken hearts. Basically, I think you could substitute chicken hearts in any recipe calling for other chicken parts. Go ahead and try. Don’t be chicken. (Sorry)
300 gram chicken hearts, sliced open. wash out the blood if you’re squeamish.
1 shallot, sliced
300 grams mixed spring mushrooms, sliced into agreeable chunks
1 chunk of fresh ginger, sliced thinly
1 T coconut oil
1 T sesame oil
1 t rice vinegar
100 ml water
200 ml coconut milk, canned
Heat the oil; sauté the chicken and shallot in a heavy saucepan over medium heat for a few minutes. Stir to keep stuff from sticking to the saucepan. Add the mushrooms and ginger. Stir it wildly. Splash in the vinegar. Add the water and coconut milk. Stir. Simmer “until done.” Don’t you hate recipes that rely on you to decide what is done! Simmering lets the ingredients share their flavors and softens the mushrooms.
If you think it needs some salt, try adding a splash of coconut aminos. Enjoy!
