DESCRIPTION:

Want the feeling of fine dining, but without the huge cost, insane calories and waiting lists? Then, this easier than you think home-cooked meal is something you should consider! The Wild Boar is about £3, making this plate in the £5 range… but I’d happy pay 4x that in a restaurant. The flavours are amazing. The Sweet Potato Dauphinoise is packed full of flavour – rich, creamy, rooty and a little sweetness.The Wild Boar is like a Mediterranean pork called Lunza, but more tender and less salty. It’s a more refined, juicy and succulent version of pork. Combine that with the simple Blueberry Jus and WOW! Combine that with roasted crispy Carrots and Asparagus, and you have a plate of nutritional and taste explosion. Enjoy! 😋

For a smaller portion, I would keep to the 1x Boar but just halve the Dauphinoise Portion by halving all associated ingredients. This would save you 250 calories, without compromising on the flavours or nutritional goodness whatsoever.

HEALTH BENEFITS:

  • Wild Boar is high in protein whilst being very lean. It is a good source of monounsaturated fats and zinc. Wild boar is rich in iron, Niacin  Thiamin and B6, in addition to Selenium. 
  • Sweet Potato offers a nice hit of vitamin A, C, Copper, K & B6, plus has a lower blood sugar response than white potato due to it’s high fibre content that slows the absorption of the carbs.
  • Asparagus contains folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium, a trace mineral that can enhance the transport of blood sugar into your cells.
  • Carrots are a rich source of Beta carotene – a powerful antioxidant that can also be converted into vitamin A in the body to help maintain healthy skin.
  • Garlic being consumed on a daily basis (in food or raw) helps to lower cholesterol levels because of the anti-oxidant properties of Allicin. It is also immensely beneficial to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
  • Coconut Milk – 93% of its calories come from healthy saturated fats known as medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). It is high in fibre and has a good amount of manganese, copper, selenium and iron. It is also low in sugar and digestible carbohydrates, and has a low score on the glycemic index. That said, it can be quite calorific, so consume in moderation. 
  • Ricotta – When a cheese maker separates milk or cream into curds and whey, the curds are used to make cottage cheese and the whey is used to make ricotta. Ounce-for-ounce, part-skim ricotta has about half of the fat and calories of part-skim mozzarella and nearly as much protein as egg whites, making it a low-calorie, low-fat and protein-rich cheese.
