We've always made this recipe with freeze dried or dehydrated onions and jarred garlic. The measurements for fresh are listed as well, just that it will increase your prep time. This makes 4 servings if eaten alone, 6 servings if over rice (though of course it will not be paleo over rice!) Recipe adapted with permission from food.com

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cups medium fresh zucchini sliced into half circles (3-4 )
  • fresh cilantro chopped
  1. Add the ground beef, salt, pepper, onion, and garlic to a large skillet on medium high heat.

  3. Stir in the salsa and cumin, reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
