Yield: 4 Servings

Ingredients

Filling

Topping

Instructions

  1. Wash zucchini and trim ends off. Slice in half length-wise and scoop out the insides to create a boat/cavity deep enough to allow space for your meat mixture. Reserve the zucchini you scoop out.
  2. Place zucchini boats in a Pyrex baking dish or casserole dish and brush lightly with olive oil. Sprinkle with pinch of Himalayan salt and black pepper if you've reintroduced.
  3. Mix ground beef, chopped reserved zucchini, shredded carrot and the dry seasonings. Use your hands to ensure everything is well blended.
  4. In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil and sautee onion until translucent. Add minced garlic and sautee until fragrant.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  6. Add ground beef mixture and sautee until browned. If there is a lot of fat, you can drain it off, I didn't find the need.
  7. While the filling cooks, mix all topping ingredients together in a small bowl, ensuring there are no clumps and set aside.
  8. If you're cooking for non-AIPers or want to add more flavor, see the tips below for some additional, optional suggestions.
  9. Spoon filling mixture into zucchini boats and add the topping mixture. Sprinkle with extra dried parsley if you wish, and a pinch or two of black pepper if you've reintroduced.
  10. Bake at 400 F for 25 minutes or until zucchini are tender but still al dente in texture. You can opt to broil for a few minutes to ensure the topping is browned and crispy.
  11. Serve immediately.

Notes

TIPS!

  • This recipe is VERY adaptable! You can add extra flavor by topping it with cooked and crumbled AIP compliant bacon. Or, try mixing some fauxmato sauce or AIP BBQ sauce in to the filling mixture before adding it to your zucchinis boats (about 1/2 a cup should be enough to half of the ground beef mixture). Add some extra veggies, like chopped mushrooms if you wish. Looking to add some cheesy flavor? Try a sprinkle of Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast.
  • Serving to non-AIPers and want to liven this dish up a bit more for them? Divide your filling mixture and add their favorite pre-made tomato sauce and maybe some hot pepper flakes before adding to their zucchinis boats. You can top theirs with grated mozzarella or Parmesan if they're into that.

Ribeye, Rapini and Rainbow Carrots … Oh my!

Don’t worry, you don’t have to be a grill-master or a whiz in the kitchen to pull off this delectable, steak-house quality dinner. And, since you’re whipping up this simple recipe at home, indulging in this steak dinner is far more economical than date-night out!

TIP:  Sign up for a flexible truLOCAL meat subscription with the offer below and you’ll receive some bonuses that make this one even more affordable!

Cut & Quality Count!

Choosing the right cut of quality, grass-fed beef is key. Did you know that grass-fed beef is not only higher in omega-3s, but it’s also better tasting too? You really can’t beat the flavor of a tender, juicy and well-marbled truLOCAL ribeye steak – the marbling enhances the flavor while basting the meat in the cooking process to ensure a juicy steak.

When it comes to cooking a ribeye, you don’t need to worry about marinades and sauces, simple seasoning is best, and grilling is fast and easy. Add a couple of flavorful, nutrient dense accompaniments and you’ll look like a pro!

Why Rapini and Rainbow Carrots?Rainbow Carrots and Rapini, Garlic

Rapini (or Broccoli Rabe/Broccolini) is a nutty, bitter and pungent vegetable. Bitter vegetables like rapini improve digestion, so it’s a great vegetable to pair with beef. But, since bitter might not be your thing, we add garlic, lemon and apple cider vinegar in our seasonings to help reduce it.

Rainbow carrots, really? Can’t I just use regular carrots? Sure, you can just use “ordinary” carrots if that’s all you can get, but since our goal is to get a variety of nutrients in us, try mixing things up when you have a chance. Did you know: Each individual color of rainbow carrots contains a specific set of phytonutrients (antioxidants) which offer slightly different nutritional benefits. Eat the rainbow folks!

The Recipe

This recipe is overall about as simple as they come. Very little prep time is required, and you make the chimichurri sauce the day before which means your actual meal-time prep is minimal – perfect for a special occasion or date night with your sweetheart. 

I hope you’ll try my suggested sides – they’re so easy, and pairing steak with a bitter vegetable helps with digestion. It’s also easy to add a different side dish (like potatoes) if you have non-AIP family that you’re dining with, though my non-AIP hubby enjoyed this without his standard sides.

Grilled Ribeye, Rapini, Rainbow Carrots and Chimmichuri

Grilled Ribeye, Rapini & Rainbow Carrots with Garlic Scape Basil Chimichurri

Yield: 2 Servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ A delectable, steak-house quality dinner that's easy enough for the newest of cooks!

Ingredients

Garlic Scape Chimichurri

Grilled Rapini & Rainbow Carrots

Instructions

For best flavor, prepare your Chimichurri sauce a day in advance.

When it's time to grill, everything can be cooked at the same time, which makes this a fast and easy meal.

Garlic Scape Chimichurri :

  1. Add all chimichurri ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Depending on the desired thickness of your chimichurri sauce, you may wish to add some additional olive oil.
  3. Store in a glass jar over night in the refrigerator.

Prepping Steaks & Veggies :

  1. Thaw your truLOCAL ribeye steaks in the refrigerator overnight or defrost in their packaging in cold water. Remove Chimmichuri sauce and steaks from refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking, but no more than 1 hour, this will help ensure your meat cooks more evenly.
  2. Season both sides of the steak with a pinch or two of Himalayan salt and pepper if you've reintroduced - for ribeye steaks, the simpler the seasoning the better.
  3. In a small dish combine extra virgin olive oil and crushed garlic and set aside to allow flavors to meld.
  4. Thoroughly wash and trim rapini, allowing it to soak while you scrub the rainbow carrots (no need to peel) and trim the tops off.
  5. Pat the rainbow carrots dry and cut in half lengthwise. Brush with garlic olive oil and set aside.
  6. Rinse the rapini and lightly dry with a clean kitchen towel. Place rapini in a large bowl and drizzle with remaining garlic olive oil and 1 Tbsp. of Chimmichuri sauce. Using your hands, massage the oil and Chimmichuri into the rapini.
  7. Pre-heat your grill to medium-high heat.
  8. Arrange rapini and carrots on the grill in a single layer and season with a pinch or two of Himalayan salt.
  9. Place ribeye steaks on the grill. Cook over direct heat for 4-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare (see temperature tips below). Reduce flame or move to cooler spots on your grill to avoid burning or flareups. 
  10. Flip and turn vegetables, moving them around the grill to avoid burning - some charring is good, but avoid burning.  
  11. Remove steak from grill and allow to rest, tented with foil, for a 5-10 minutes prior to serving. This allows the juices to settle back into the meat.
  12. Vegetables should be cooked at approximately the same time as your steak, but check to ensure they're cooked through but still al dente. Remove to a bowl or serving platter and cover to keep warm while the steak rests.
  13. Plate steak and vegetables and drizzle with Chimichurri Sauce.

Notes

Temperature Tips!

Use an instant meat / grilling thermometer to determine if your steaks are cooked the way you like them.

120° F = Rare
130° F = Medium rare
140° F = Medium
160° F = Well done

Grilled Chicken & Romaine with Creamy Avocado Caesar Dressing

Yield: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ Our quick and easy twist on a classic with a creamy AIP Caesar dressing that doesn't involve coconut! Keep it simple or dress it up!

Ingredients

Marinade :

Creamy Avocado Caesar Dressing :

Instructions

  1. Thaw your truLOCAL chicken breasts in the refrigerator overnight or defrost in their packaging in cold water.
  2. Mix all marinade ingredients together in a shallow glass dish. Arrange chicken in a single layer and allow to marinade for a total of 30 minutes (15 minutes in the refrigerator and 15 minutes at room temperature – see below. (NOTE: Do NOT over-marinate your chicken or the proteins will begin to break down due to the acidity of the marinade.)
  3. While your chicken is marinating, prepare the dressing.
  4. Add all dressing ingredients to a deep bowl or large liquid measuring cup and blend well using a stick/immersion blender. If your dressing is too thick, blend in ½ tsp of water (or additional lemon juice – test for flavor before you decide) at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
  5. Refrigerate and allow the flavors to meld. (NOTE: you can make your dressing ahead and store in the refrigerator as the lemon juice will keep the avocado from browning.)
  6. Trim and discard the root end of the romaine lettuce, removing only as much as necessary so the head remains intact.  Cut the romaine in half lengthwise and rinse under cold running water (do not soak). Wrap the romaine in paper towels or a clean kitchen towel to remove excess water.
  7. Bring chicken to room temperature approximately 15 minutes before grilling, this will help ensure your meat cooks more evenly.
  8. Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat.
  9. Remove chicken breasts from marinade and place on pre-heated grill. Season with salt and pepper. Place halved or quartered lemons cut side down on grill.
  10. Allow chicken breasts to cook over high heat until they release easily from grill, about 5 minutes. Turn chicken breasts over, season again with salt and pepper and allow to cook on second side until chicken releases easily from grill.  Reduce flame or move chicken
    to cooler spots on your grill to avoid burning or flareups.  
  11. Continue grilling lemon cut side down as chicken cooks. Cook lemon until slightly softened and grill marks have formed, about 5 minutes. Remove lemons from the grill and let stand.
  12. Continuing grilling chicken, turning and moving until cooked through and an internal temperature of 165F has been reached. (NOTE: If your chicken breasts are very thick and they begin to char or become over cooked on the outside, it may be necessary to cut them in half and place the uncooked,  center cut on the grill or to flatten slightly before grilling. We found our truLOCAL boneless skinless chicken breasts to be the perfect size for grilling – no cutting or pre-flattening was required.)
  13. Remove chicken from grill and allow to rest, tented with foil, for
    a few minutes prior to slicing. This allows the juices to settle back into the chicken.
  14. While the chicken is resting, place the washed and dried romaine hearts cut side down on the grill. Leaving lid open, cook until grill marks form, about 3 minutes. Gently turn the lettuce using tongs, and grill for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from grill. (NOTE: This method infuses a smoky flavor, but take care not to over-cook the lettuce, it should be lightly charred but NOT cooked through, retaining its fresh salad crunch.)
  15. Plate your grilled romaine heart and top with sliced grilled chicken breast, a drizzle of AIP Avocado Caesar Dressing and the grilled lemon on the side. Add a squeeze of grilled lemon to your salad and enjoy!

Notes

But what about the bacon, croutons and Parmesan for this Caesar?

Our goal with this dish was to give you an easy recipe that would get you off your feet quickly, so instead of bacon we're infusing the romaine with that smoky flavor from the grill.

Not afraid of a few extra steps in the kitchen? Feel free to add some AIP compliant bacon, croutons and Parmesan crumbles to this Caesar!

Where do you find these things?

Bacon - Read more about compliant bacon here.

Parmesan Crumbles - Check out this recipe, it sounds amazing!
(Be sure to use NON-Fortified Nutritional Yeast - you can learn more about that here)

Croutons - Try these Casabi crackers! So good!

AIP Grilled Pork Ribs with Maple Glaze with Grilled Leeks and Radicchio

AIP Grilled Pork Ribs with Maple Glaze

Yield: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ Drool worthy ribs the whole family will love! Shhh! They won't even know they're AIP.

Ingredients

Spice Rub

  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper (stage 1 reintroduction)

Glaze

Instructions

  1. Thaw your truLOCAL ribs in the refrigerator overnight or
    defrost in their packaging in cold water.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F.
  3. Remove ribs from packaging and pat dry.
  4. Optional, but recommended: When preparing pork ribs, take a minute to remove the ‘silver skin’. This is a thin membrane on the underside of the rack. Simply slide a knife under the silver skin anywhere along the rack and peel it away. Go here for a simple tutorial that might just put a smile on your face!
    (We found that our truLOCAL ribs had very little silver skin.)
  5. Mix all spice rub ingredients together in a small bowl.
  6. Massage both sides of the ribs with the spice rub. Place ribs on a
    parchment lined baking sheet and tent (not wrap) with aluminum foil.
  7. Roast for 1 hour in a 350F degree oven.
  8. While ribs are roasting, combine all glaze ingredients in a small,
    heavy bottomed sauce pan, place over high heat and bring to a boil. Lower heat
    and simmer uncovered until mixture is reduced and slightly thickened,
    approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Set aside.
  9. If you're serving AIP Grilled Vegetables along side your ribs, you can use this time to prep them. (Once it's time to grill the ribs, both the ribs and your veg can be grilled at the same time.)
  10. Remove ribs from oven after 1 hour, set aside.
  11. Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high.
  12. Place ribs on the preheated grill and brush with glaze, allowing
    glaze to caramelize. Turn every few minutes continuing to brush with glaze.
    Reduce flame or move ribs to cooler spots on your grill to avoid burning or
    flareups. Continue basting and turning for approximately 3-5 minutes using all
    of your glaze or until ribs are thoroughly coated and caramelized.
  13. Remove from heat and serve immediately.

Notes

This ribs can be cooked just in the oven if you don't have a BBQ or the weather isn't cooperating.
After 1 hour, the ribs are fully cooked. Simply brush with glaze and cook them under the broiler for 5 minutes, brush with more glaze and broil for 5 minutes more allowing the glaze to caramelize. Keep close watch that they don't burn.

This recipe for Crispy Baked AIP Chicken Wings was invented because I was tired of the slimy results I got from a lot of the AIP chicken wing recipes that instruct you to cook them with the sauce already on.

I couldn’t figure out why recipes weren’t instructing you to cook them first, as you would with a traditional wing, and THEN toss them in the sauce of your choice. Not wanting to get into deep-frying, I decided to bake my wings.

My sister had told me about making crispy chicken with baking powder, so I set out to make my own Crispy Baked AIP Chicken Wings … and when I tested them … they tasted quite like Kentucky Fried Chicken! SAY WHAT!

I served my non-AIP hubby his WITH his regular BBQ sauce but let him try mine with nothing but the recipe below … he was SHOCKED! He said, “These really do taste like KFC! You don’t need to put sauce mine next time!”

My original recipe had fewer ingredients than this final version that I’m presenting below. I tweaked it after researching the actual 11 herbs and spices that KFC uses – hope you enjoy it! ♥

♥ RECIPE & IMAGE BY: AIPRecipeCollection.com ♥ Have a hankering for KFC but you're on the AIP? Try my delicious creation!
Not Greasy! Easy Clean Up!

Ingredients

  • 2 Pounds Chicken Wings (Drummettes & Flats separated and tips removed)
  • 1 Tbsp AIP Baking Powder (See Below for a DIY Recipe)
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan Salt
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
  • 1/4 tsp Ginger Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper (Stage 1 Reintroduction)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Rinse and thoroughly dry your wings with paper towel.
  3. Combine all seasoning ingredients in a zippered bag and mix well.
  4. Toss wings in the seasoning mixture until well coated. You may need to do this in smaller batches to ensure they're all coated well.
  5. Arrange wings in a single layer on the parchment lined baking tray. Give them space - no touching or overlapping.
  6. Cook for 20 minutes - the underside will be browned. Flip and cook an additional 20 minutes.
  7. Check that all sides are cooked and browned. You may need to re-arrange your wings so the edges that are less browned are touching the pan and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or try using the broiler for a few minutes, but keep a close eye so you don't burn them.
  8. We enjoy these on their own, but if you'd prefer to serve them with a dipping sauce or to coat them in BBQ sauce, try our searchable Facebook Group for lots more sauce and dipping inspiration. See below for tips!

Notes

AIP Baking Powder

Traditional baking powder contains aluminum and grain (corn starch), which is a no-no on the AIP. Whip up a batch or two of this easy AIP baking powder to have on hand for this and other recipes.

2 Tbsp Cream of Tartar
1 Tbsp Aluminum Free Baking Soda

Mix well until combined.Store in an air-tight glass container for upto 6 weeks.

Tips!

  • I've tried this recipe with chicken legs and didn't like it as much - I think it needs more skin in the game, if you will!
  • Want to make these in the AirFryer? 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Wondering where to buy quality chicken without all the nasty antibiotics and hormones? Looking for other hard-to-find AIP ingredients? Visit my food sourcing page.
  • Looking for wing sauce or dipping sauce? Join our searchable Facebook Group for inspiration and try searching BBQ Sauce, Ranch Dressing, Chimichurri Sauce, Honey Garlic, Orange Ginger or what ever might suit your fancy!
