Paleo Puteo Rican Plate

Hey Everyone!

As you may know I’m not a practicing paleo but I had to try making this dish after a friend described the ingredients to me! The recipe calls for coriander which I have in my collection of spices but honestly had never used, until now. I got that same feeling when you find a twenty dollar bill in your winter coat from last season…coriander where have you been all my life?! I don’t actually have a grinder (pepper-mill) so I had to make do (aka put coriander into a ziploc, wrap in a paper towel, and proceed to smash with a can). After a few rounds of this, a wonderful aroma will begin to emit from your paper-towel-wrapped-ziploc, that my friends is the sweet sweet smell of coriander!

This dish is so full of flavor, definitely adding it to my favorites!  And as a bonus it so nutrient rich –  which left my tummy feeling fully satiated! I also ate this with a little bit of quinoa mixed in and a sprinkle of goat cheese!
