3. Egg Plant with California Figs and Leek (by gFreeFoodie.com)
If you haven’t combined egg plant and fig, you must. Egg plant’s bitterness blends well with fig’s subtle sweetness. Both are soft in texture, making their union tender and melt-in-your-mouth bites.

4. Paleo Oven Baked Zucchini Fritters
Like what PaleoLeap.com‘s author said, this zucchini fritter recipe is the “perfect Paleo alternative” to sliders if you top fritters with pulled pork, chicken and such. Eaten alone, they’re equally delicious. I like them as both appetizer and snack. How about you?

8. Egg and Avocado Breakfast Wrap
Avocado’s vast nutritional value is incredible. It’s rich in Vitamins K, C, B5, B6 and E, as well as potassium, folate, fiber and carotenoids. It also contains healthy fat that lowers cholesterol and reduces the risk of heart disease.
Avocado is also an incredibly versatile cooking ingredient, used in a wide range of ways: condiment on sandwiches, baking ingredient, topping for salads, etc.
Today’s egg and avocado salad incorporates avocado as a basic ingredient. Wrapped with cheesy scrambled eggs, avocado serves as much-needed vegetable in this healthy breakfast recipe.
9. Garlic Snow Pea Stir Fry

10. Carrot Beet Salad
Carrot and beet? YES PLEASE!
Not only is this salad full of beta carotene, it’s naturally sweet too. With just a sprinkle of cheese on top–and letting cheese’s saltiness offset the vegetables’ sweetness.
