More Paleo tips from our resident Paleo Expert and Paleo Mom, Melissa Joa
Thickener: Use Arrowroot or Tapioca
Add to small amount of water an whisk in while heated
Sweeteners: Use honey, maple syrup, fruit purée, beet puree(red velvet), or date purée.
Flour substitutes: Use almond, coconut, hazelnut, or arrowroot(fluffier).
I like to cut coconut or almond flour with arrowroot. Per 1/2c of coconut or almond, I use 1/3c arrowroot
Lots of eggs
Whipped cream: Put a can of coconut milk in the fridge and scoop off the thick cream and whip. Serve immediately
Onion powder makes things taste cheesy
To make a “cheesy” sauce, use egg yolks and coconut milk as your sauce base(scalloped potatoes, squash, or root veg), paleo Big Mac, carbonara, fettuccini etc.
3 yolks per 1/3 cup of coconut milk
