Recipe: Raw Zucchini Shoe-String Fries

So I had a couple of trays free in my dehydrator, and some zucchini's that had to be used… so I came up with some zucchini fries that are a great snack, or would make a perfect side dish for dinner. I know a lot of people miss crunchy textures when they go paleo – if that's you, you'll love these!


If you don't have a dehydrator, get one! No seriously, you can also make these in an oven on a very low heat.

This would be great with so many other vegetables too, carrots, parsnips even capsicum. Note by adding the oil, they won't keep for as long as if you dehydrate them on their own.

Recipe: Cauliflower Rice

Rice is a great side for many meals – but why have the grain rice, when you can have a far more nutritious Paleo alternative? This recipe is quick and easy and can be varied by using different herbs and spices. You can also stir in an egg whilst cooking, to make an egg fried rice; or make it a dish in it's own right by adding more vegetables such as capsicum (bell peppers) and zucchini.

This rice is so good, I've served it up many times without people even realising it isn't “normal” rice!


  • Half a cauliflower
  • Half an onion
  • Coconut oil
  • Pinch cumin
  • Pinch paprika
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • Sea salt to taste


Grate the cauliflower florets by hand, or in a food processor, until the consistency resembles rice.

Dice the onion into small pieces and fry in olive oil over a medium heat

Once the onion starts to turn golden add the grated cauliflower and spices and stir for a few moments ensuring it doesn't burn. Add more oil if necessary.

Serve and enjoy! You can also make extra to store in the fridge, ready to be reheated with dinner.
