In this case, we’re talking about tomatoes that have been chopped up, stir-fried, and then baked with a big dollop of animal fat.
The other ingredients add flavor and extra nutrients, and besides, they were just made to go with tomatoes.
This dish originated while testing recipes to serve for The Paleo Porn Family Dinner. Jeff & I really enjoyed the dish but the acidic tomatoes didn’t pair well with the rest of the flavors on the menu.
I was in need of a more mild flavor for a side dish, so I replaced the Scalloped Tomatoes with Rutabaga Mash.
A Perfect Family-Style Dish
It’s the perfect quantity to share, family-style, at a large gathering, but it’s not one that will keep you in the kitchen all day. Just chop up your veggies, stir them up in a skillet for a few minutes, and let the oven do the rest of the work. The result is a savory, aromatic dish that will have people reaching for more.
Great For A Paleo Holiday Event
This is a great Paleo side dish to add to your Paleo Thanksgiving or Christmas menu. If you have family members that are still skeptical of the Paleo lifestyle, you don’t even have to let them know you’re making something healthy. Just tell them you’ll bring a killer side dish.
