king salmon steak & italian style veggies


king salmon steak baked in toaster oven for 10 minutes with "italian style" veggies: broccoli, green bell pepper, and tomato sauteed with olive oil, italian herbs and crushed red pepper and then covered to simmer for a few minutes. when i cook veggies, i like to be very gentle with the heat and keep the veggies lightly cook so they still have some crispness :)

chicken & veggie chana masala



i love indian food and one of the dishes i really love is chana masala. eating a paleo diet, i dont eat chickpeas, so i took the chana masala flavoring and applied it to something else!

of course, its an interpretation based on my research of what goes into chana masala. i think i got close to the taste ;)

chicken chopped up
broccoli
tomatoes
onion
garlic
coriander
cumin
cayenne
tumeric
paprika
ginger
salt
lemon
green chili
butter

stir fry in pan and cover to simmer for 5 minutes

yumminess! :)
