Crispy-skinned duck breast, nestled with glazed plums were placed in the hot oven to roast. As the plums roasted, they split and released their juices into the pan. At the end, a simple glaze of reduced hard cider and maple syrup was spooned over top with some crispy sage. The combination of tangy roasted plums with the earthy duck breast was divine.

This simple yet utterly decadent recipe is surprisingly quick and easy enough for a weeknight meal where you need a little extra love and self-nurturing. Instant Pot Tikka Masala. Chilli Con Carne. How it all started This is one of the recipes I've been making for a few years now. When me and my man lived in London, we used to make this in the evenings as a comfort meal, often for our friends, too. It all started as a one-time experiment, but never left our house ever since.

Quinoa Zucchini Patties with Feta — kitchenJulie

In a large bowl, mix the cooked and drained quinoa, eggs, chopped zucchini (fresh if not pan frying with onion), onion, finely chopped spring onions & parsley, feta cheese, buckwheat flour, salt. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes. Heat a bit of coconut oil in a pan and add a bit of quinoa mixture, forming a round and about 1,5 cm thick patty; continue until you fill up the pan. Leave some room for flipping. Cook on medium heat and flip to switch sides once you see a golden crust forming on the bottom (3-5 minutes). Serve with a dollop of light crème fraîche/sour cream and fresh veggies. NOTE: These patties tend to break if you don't make them thick enough (it should look more like a burger patty than a pancake).
