Paleo Friendly Freezable Recipes!

Yes, it is true – you have found access to paleo friendly freezable recipes that are easy to make and won’t cost you the earth!  When I searched google  to find some recipes I found so many recipes full of lots of rice, pasta and potato.  Which is great for people that eat all those foods – but it doesn’t help people that are gluten intolerant or just want to eliminate those types of processed or starchy carbs from their diet.  I’ll be adding all the recipes over the next few weeks. 

All these recipes are gluten free, sugar free, and dairy free and taste just as good reheated as they did fresh!

Buffalo Chicken Shepherd’s Pie

(Makes 8 meals)

  • 1.6kg chicken mince (you can use turkey too)
  • 300g onion (roughly chopped)
  • 1.3kg carrot (small dice)
  • 1.2kg celery (small dice)
  • 2.2 cauliflower (cut into florets)
  • 1/2 litre chicken stock

Buffalo Chicken Sauce

  • 100g onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 4 Tbs parsley
  • 4 tsp dill
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp himalayan salt
  • 4 Tbs American mustard
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp hot sauce/ equivalent cayenne pepper
  • 1 can coconut cream

The first step is to make the buffalo chicken sauce.  Put all the ingredients in a blender, small food processor or magic bullet type device and blitz together until you get a smooth paste.  It’s that easy!  You might want to tweak the spice for how hot you would like it but it’s up to you.

Step two is to start cooking the meat mix.  In a big pot add the onions and cook for 3-5 minutes on a medium heat until they start to soften.  Then add the carrots and celery to the mix and let this cook down for 10 minutes, stirring though occasionally.  Now its time to add the chicken mince and the chicken stock, mix through the vegetables and cook for another 20 minutes.

While the chicken mince mix is cooking steam or boil the cauliflower (your choice but I recommend steaming).  This may take 15-20 minutes because of the massive amount!  Once this is cooked you want to drain off the water and mash the cauliflower until it’s kind of smooth.  Add 1/4 of the buffalo chicken sauce to the mashed cauliflower and stir through.

Now you want to add the remaining 3/4 of the buffalo chicken sauce to the chicken mix and stir this through.  Cook for a further 5 minutes.

So now you are ready to freeze this.  We freezed it with the cauliflower mash on the bottom so it would be right way up when we flip it out of the container to reheat!  So layer 1 – cauliflower mash, layer 2 – chicken mince mix.

Chicken Gumbo

(Makes 8 meals)

  • 1.3kg chicken
  • 4 onions
  • 1.2kg celery
  • 1.3kg pumpkin
  • 1.3kg cabbage
  • 2 cans of tomatoes
  • 1 jar tomato passata (700ml)
  • 3 tsp Hungarian sweet paprika
  • 3 tsp thyme leaves
  • 1 -2 tsp dried chilli
  • 2 -3 litres chicken stock
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • coconut oil / olive oil

Yes – we have made this before!  This is the bulk/freezable version so the method of cooking does not change.  You can find how to make this recipe HERE.  If you would like the Gumbo with a little more broth, add a little more chicken stock and adjust the chilli to your spicy liking!

Chilli Con Carne

(Makes 8 meals)

  • 1.6kg mince (you can use beef, chicken, turkey, lamb, pork, kangaroo or any variations of these)
  • 2 cans tomatoes
  • 1 jar tomato passata (700ml)
  • 1.2kg zucchini
  • 1.3kg cauliflower
  • 4 onions
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 4 tsp ground cumin
  • 3 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp dried chili
  • 500ml stock

The first step is to brown the onions is a large casserole/pot until they are translucent (approx 5 mins), add the garlic and cook for a further 2 mins.  Add the beef mince to the onions and garlic and cook until the mince is browned.  Keep stirring and break up the mince so it is mixed in with the onion and garlic.

Add the cumin, coriander and chilli to the dish and stir for another minute.  Add the chopped zucchini and mix through.

In a food processor, chop the cauliflower up finely. Add the cauliflower, along with the tomatoes and 2 cups of water to the pot.

Stir and bring to the boil.  Simmer for at least 20 minutes to ensure the cauliflower and zucchini are cooked and some of the stock has evaporated.

Serve with fresh avocado!

  1. Hi Chris, coconut milk and coconut cream come in a can. You can generally find it at the supermarket or in an Asian or Indian grocery store.

    Debbie, tomato passata is pureed tomatoes.

    Keep the questions coming! Tors x
