I love a full cooked Scottish breakfast but I also like to eat healthy……this little creation is only 240 calories and about 6g fat……you still get the full flavour without the guilty feeling. A win win all round. I just love breakfast times.
I source all my ingredients locally so everything is fresh and super tasty! Not joined a Food Assembly near you yet, sign up here:-
After collecting my Goat Joint from the amazing Harris Farm Meats https://harrisfarmmeats.scot/ at the Glasgow Food Assembly https://thefoodassembly.com/en/assemblies/7907 this week I then had to decided what I was going to do with it, I came across this amazing recipe and totally fell in love with the ingredients, so here is my creation which deliveries the most amazing flavours in your mouth.
Goat is a new taste for me and my partner and I would thoroughly recommend it.
1 x Goat Joint (this was 1.1kg) was enough for about 4 people.
2 x onions – red or white (I used 1 of each)
2 cloves of garlic or 1 tbsp granules
1″ ginger root or 1 tbsp ginger paste or granules
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tbsp turmeric
1 tbsp gram masala
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 Green Chillies
Salt & pepper to taste
1 tbsp ground almonds (optional)
4 -6 cloves
Put all ingredients (apart from cloves and goat joint) into a food processor and blend into a paste.
Preheat oven to 160 deg.
Remove any fat from the Goat Meat. Use a sharp knife and make deep pockets above the bone at each side and then small cuts all over the meat.
Push the cloves into some of the pockets and also push some of the spice mixture into the rest then cover the meat with remaining mixture.
Place into a lightly oiled baking tin and cover with tin foil loosely.
Bake for approx 3-4 hours and remove foil 10 minutes before end to brown. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Oh so Yummy!
I served with some vegetable couscous which went perfectly. Oh…and a wee glass of Pinot Noir! Delicious.
I picked up some amazing Kalettes from my local Food assembly in Glasgow this week, they were kindly supplied by Donald from Rhone Cottage, (http://www.rhonecottage.co.uk/) they grow their own seasonal produce using only sustainable practises and no artificial fertilisers are used.
I decided to try and stir fry them with some seafood, and the flavour was amazing. Kalettes are a bit like a brussel sprout and Kale in one, also classed as a superfood. Below are the Kalettes.
He also kindly gave me the Kalette Top to try and the leaves are very nice, flavoursome and hold their texture. Here is the Kalette Top.
150g – 200g each Portion of Prawns, Mussels and squid
Slice of smoked Salmon – chopped
60g Red rice – cooked as per packet
Chilli – chopped finely
Parsley – finely chopped
Handful of Kalettes
6 Kalette Leaves – cut in half
Warm through seafood mix for few minutes.
Add in the Kalettes and leaves with chilli and sprinkle with soy sauce. Cook for approx 2-3 mins.
Once rice is cooked through add into mix and stir through.
