Winning people over...

So I had a friend over for dinner last night and decided to serve one of my all time favourites meatballs in curry - Paleo style! I had talked to her before hand and had promised to make a serving of rice for her since the thought of cauliflower rice did not sound appealing to her at all. So I made the dish, with a very large serving of rice (I really had no idea that 2 dl would make such a big batch - not a big rice cooker), a large serving of cauliflower rice and then oven baked hokkaido pumpkins.

Well she is a very polite person so she decided to give the cauliflower rice a try, and surprise surprise today I have a pot full of cooked rice and no cauliflower. So even though she is probably not going to be eating paleo from now on she could definitely see how great it was that instead of "empty" rice she had just eating a large amount of greens without really noticing...

So to those of you still willing to try some more Danish dishes here is the recipe (this one tastes much better than what my picture shows):

Meat Balls:
½ lb ground pork
1 diced onion
2 teaspoons salt
½ cup coconut milk
½ cup almond flour
1 egg

1 diced onion
1 teaspoon olive oil
3-4 teaspoons of curry (depending on how strong you like it)
1 tablespoon fresh ginger
Arrowroot (if you like a thick sauce)
1 cup coconut milk
1 cube of chicken broth

Bring 5 cups of water with 2 teaspoons of salt to boil. While the water is heating up combine all the ingredients for the meat balls into a bowl and mix well. Shape the meat into meatballs using a tablespoon or teaspoon, and let them boil in the water for app 5 minutes or until they move to the surface of the water. Remove the finished meatballs from the water. Pour the rest of the water into a can for use in the sauce later. Now fry the onions together with curry and olive oil in the pot. Add the water from the meat balls, the chicken broth and the ginger, and let it boil for 5 minutes. Add the coconut milk and thicken with arrow root until you reach the right consistency. Add the meatballs to the sauce and let it it simmer for a few minutes. Serve with cauliflower rice.

The other night I made almond crusted salmon from www.paleoplan.com. I guess you can pretty much encrust any kinda fish in almonds or something like it to make it taste fantastic. This would also be a great dish to serve when having compagny over since it looks very nice as well. I served it with asparagus and tomatoes since that was all I had.
