Hey folks. I wanted to let you guys know about a paleo restaurant called Blooming Beets opening in Boulder, CO in April 2014. It’s being launched by Iva (the girl behind PaleoFlip). It’s great to see actual paleo restaurants popping up! Can you imagine having 100% paleo restaurant options? Being able to go to a restaurant that focuses on local meats and veggies, where you don’t have to worry about asking if foods are gluten free, requesting they be cooked in healthy fats/oils, etc? A restaurant that serves recipes like the one Iva sent in listed below? (Yes, these Bacon Sweet Potato Muffins will actually be on the menu). Check out the crowdfunding campaign to help them get started at a central downtown location.
Now for the recipe Iva sent in to us to share with you all, enjoy:
Bacon Sweet Potato Muffins
6 slices of bacon
1 large sweet potato
1.5 tsp minced dried onion
1 bunch chives
1 tsp coconut oil
Sea salt to taste
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Grate the sweet potato and combine with the egg, mixing thoroughly.
3. Grease the muffin tray with coconut oil. Lay a slice of bacon inside each cup to form a cup-shaped lining.
4. Fill the bacon cup with the grated potato mix and sprinkle with the minced dried onion. Add sea salt to taste.
5. Bake for 45 minutes.
