Casual Saturday night dinner in, don’t mind if I do. Crispy @luvaduck breast with pancetta & brussel sprout lupin, cooked in a 50:50 mix of beautiful butter by @pemberton_butter_co_ & duck fat. Go on, drool, it was delicious
Lupin you ask? Yes, it’s a legume, I but I don’t mind enjoying it occasionally though. With a slightly nutty flavour, lupin uses minimal water to grow and helps put nitrogen back into the ground. So farmers often use them between seasons to richen the soil as it reduces the need for fertilisers. The macro content of lupin is quite impressive too - 40% protein, 37% fibre & just 4% carbs! It has 3 x more antioxidants than berries, potassium than bananas and iron than kale (which for me is perfect)! As for duck, it is a quality source of protein, iron, selenium, B vitamins & zinc. Oh, and cooked well its amazeballs.
