Asian Cauliflower Fried "Rice" From 'Nom Nom Paleo'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 4 comments

What did a rice-lover like Michelle Tam of Nom Nom Paleo do to satisfy the craving once she switched to a Paleo (a.k.a. rice-free) diet? Started making rice from cauliflower, of course. Okay, perhaps cauliflower "rice" is not an obvious choice to anyone unfamiliar with the Paleo diet, but the bright white vegetable makes for a texturally similar dish to rice once spun around in a food processor for a few minutes.

Southwest Cowboy Chili From 'Nom Nom Paleo'

Cook the Book Kate Williams Post a comment

Big, meaty entrées are the first thing I think of when I think of the Paleo diet. Think steak topped with bacon topped with steak, all fried in lard. The cowboy chili in Michelle Tam's new cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo, fits right in with those expectations, but it also wouldn't be out of place in any other omnivorous American cookbook. More

Bone Broth From 'Nom Nom Paleo'

Close readers of this site already know that adding lots of meaty bones to a pot with water will inevitably lead to a rich, gelatin-filled stock. Michelle Tam takes this idea even further in her recipe for bone broth in her new cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo. More

Eggplant "Ricotta" Stacks From 'Nom Nom Paleo'

Cook the Book Kate Williams Post a comment

This trio of eggplant, tomato, and ricotta cheese makes for a hearty, if not terribly exciting, twist on a caprese salad. Give the appetizer a Paleo twist, though, and the dish transforms into something far more interesting. Michelle Tam's recipe in her new cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo, pairs eggplant slices (coated in ghee and broiled) with thick tomato steaks, a balsamic and shallot reduction, and her own macadamia nut-based ricotta "cheese."

Macadamia Nut "Ricotta" From 'Nom Nom Paleo'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 16 comments

Nut "cheese" is not the first thing I expected to make from a Paleo cookbook. Most nut cheese recipes call for cashews; as someone with a cashew allergy, I have tended to avoid all dairy-free cheeses for the sake of safety. So I was pleasantly surprised when Michelle Tam's recipe for nut "cheese" in her new cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo, called for macadamia nuts. Mild-tasting, rich, and sweet, these round nuts not only fit into my diet, but they also seem like an ideal substitute for ricotta. More

Cook the Book: 'Nom Nom Paleo' by Michelle Tam and Henry Fong

Cook the Book Kate Williams Closed

Despite my fanatical allegiance to grains, I'm willing to experiment with some Paleo cooking with the help of well-known blogger, Michelle Tam of Nom Nom Paleo. (Consider this week my equivalent of Kenji and Ed's vegan experience—except it's kind of the opposite.) Tam, along with her husband, Henry Fong, just released a graphic novel-esque cookbook celebrating their quirky approach to the popular Paleo diet. More
