Marinated Beets

Marinated Beets Recipe

Makes 2 quarts

Marinated Beets


  • 3 lbs beets;
  • 1 tbsp Paleo cooking fat, melted;
  • a few sprigs of fresh thyme and/or savory;
  • 2 onions, sliced in thin rounds;
  • 1/2 tsp salt;
  • 1 cup white wine vinegar;
  • 1/4 tsp black peppercorns;
  • 6 whole cloves;
  • 6 whole allspice berries;
  • 2 wide strips lemon zest;
  • 2 sprigs fresh dill;
  • 2 1 quart jars;
Beet preparation


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 F.
  2. While the oven heats up, prepare the beets by scrubbing them clean of any excess dirt. Also remove the stems and root tip.
  3. Line a large baking dish with aluminium foil to cover both the bottom and enough to fold over the top of the beets. Place the beets atop the foil and drizzle with the cooking fat. Cover with thyme and savory. Fold the excess foil over the beets and seal them in, as if you were creating an envelope. Roast for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, until tender.
  4. Once the beets have cooked, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool enough so that they can be handled, but still warm. This is key, as they need to be warm in order to easily remove the skin. Remove the skin and allow them to cool off completely.
  5. Place the sliced onions in a large bowl and cover with boiling water. Set them aside like this for 10 minutes. This will make them tender, which will stimulate the marinading processes.
  6. Once the beets have cooled, slice them in 1/4″ rounds.
  7. As soon as 10 minutes has passed, begin layering the onions and beets in the jars.
  8. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar with the salt, peppercorns, cloves, allspice berries and lemon zest. Stir well and then pour half the mixture into each jar, trying to make sure that the spices are split in equal portions in each jar.
  9. Seal the jars and place them in the fridge for at least one day before serving.

The Real Truth Behind Food Labels

Here's a great video detailing the true calorie count behind food labels:

Shrimp Stuffed Eggplant

Shrimp Stuffed Eggplant

Serves 4


  • 1 eggplant;
  • 12 oz. peeled raw shrimp;
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced;
  • 1 tbsp. fresh ginger, minced;
  • 1 tbsp. fresh garlic, minced;
  • ½ cup green onions, chopped;
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped; (save some leaves for presentation)
  • 2 tbsp. red curry paste;
  • 1 tbsp. fish sauce;
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten;
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil;

Shrimp Stuffed Eggplant preparation


  1. Preheat your oven to 400F.
  2. Take the eggplant and cut it into 2 pieces lengthwise. Make a series of parallel cuts, taking care not to cut through the skin. Brush the eggplant (cut sides) with 1/2tbsp. of olive oil on each side.
  3. Place the eggplants cut side down on a roasting pan and brush the skin with ½ tbsp. olive oil and bake for 15 minutes. Turn over after the initial 15 minutes and cook again 15 to 20 minutes or until the flesh is tender. Remove from oven and reduce the heat to 350 F.
  4. In a small skillet, heat the remaining olive oil over a medium heat. Add the ginger, the garlic, and the red pepper, and cook for two minutes. Add the green onions and the cilantro and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl.
  5. Once the eggplant is cool enough, scoop out the pulp leaving the skin intact and chop the eggplant pulp.
  6. In the bowl containing the red bell pepper mixture; add the chopped eggplant, the shrimp, the beaten egg, the fish sauce and the 2 tbsp. curry paste and stir.
  7. Insert the mixture evenly in the eggplant and place back in the oven for about 30 min until the stuffing is firm.
  8. Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve.
