Give yourself some time with this Eggplant Lamb Paleo Soup, it’ll take a while but I guarantee the flavors are worth the wait!
Looking back, these photos probably don’t do the amazing flavor this soup has, justice. So you’ll just have to take it at my word. THIS. SOUP. IS. AMAZING.
Before we left on our road trip to Florida, I was trying to get rid of all the food in my refrigerator. In the process, I didn’t buy any new foods and when I opened the freezer to look at what I had left, that’s when I decided to cook my last lamb shank.
Where to Find Grass-fed Lamb Shank
Miami Beach has THE LARGEST and most amazing variety of odd bits and organ meats! They may not have grassfed beef or pastured raised pork and chickens readily available but the abundance of organ meats is quite amazing. And you’ll find them in every grocery store!
When Jeff & I travel I always take a walk through the local grocery stores, to see what is different from home and what’s locally available.
When we were in North Miami Beach I took Jeff to three different grocery stores ranging from the big-brand Publix all the way down to the ethnic grocery stores like M & L Food Market and Bay Supermarket. Thanks to the recommendations from Amanda from The Curious Coconut, I was able to pick up a nice stock of tapioca flour and plantain flour to bring home with us.
Unfortunately with the long drive home I did not take any of the organ meats but some of Amanda’s recipes really get me excited to order more odd bits and experiment further. We’ve really taken a liking to beef heart. :)
Have you prepared your Paleo game day menu yet?
If you’re having an intimate gathering to watch the big game, you can whip up a big batch of this Eggplant Lamb Paleo Soup and if you’re looking for more game day recipe ideas take a gander at my first Paleo cookbook Pigskin Paleo. Keep it clean while watching the Super Bowl and plan ahead by picking up a copy of Pigskin Paleo before it’s too late. :)
Don’t take my word for it, Amanda has been testing recipes, check out what she’s saying on Instagram.
“Also from Pigskin Paleo by @marlasarris: bacon wrapped chicken chorizo jalapeño poppers. OMG this is one of the best things I’ve eaten recently. I have to make these again SOON! #paleo #primal #glutenfree #realfood #jerf”
