Matzo ball soup without the matzo? It’s possible. And if you follow the Paleo diet, you should definitely include this soup on your menu. The recipe calls for eggs, sea salt, pepper, blanched almond flour and chicken stock or vegetable stock.

We recommend you make this chicken any night of the week, but if you need a delicious meaty centerpiece for your Passover table, this is the one to cook. It’s got lots of delicious veggies and herbs, and of course is totally Paleo. This version has received a slight makeover from the Cooking Caveman’s original recipe.

Paleo Coconut Macaroons
