Our recent supporters’ workshop at Neston Farm Shop and Kitchen was a huge success and was an excellent opportunity for attendees to ask questions and find out more information about how they can help themselves to lower blood pressure and work towards a healthier heart and lifestyle.
The guests were treated to a fabulous two course meal (duck breasts with lentil salad and a yoghurt panna cotta with raspberries and quinoa crumble) preluded by two stunning canapés (smoked mackerel on toast with celeriac slaw and a pea and feta mousse on little gem lettuce with salsa’d vegetables).
This dish is the duck main course and is a sumptuous and luxurious dish. This is mainly due to the duck, which is not a cheap ingredient. Nevertheless, it follows CardioKit advice and includes heart healthy ingredients.
Duck is an excellent source of protein and iron. It is also a source of saturated fat but, if you are aware of the CardioKit advice, you will know that this is no bad thing.
The lentils provide you with an exceptional source of dietary fibre along with folate and a whole host of other heart healthy vitamins and minerals.
There are so many healthy, vitamin and mineral rich ingredients in this dish such as fennel, which is high in vitamin C, and the nuts and seeds, which provide healthy fats and dietary fibre amongst other valuable nutrients.
Don’t just take our word for it though; try the recipe for yourself and let us know what you think.
