Equipment

  • Roasting dish
  • Small pan

Ingredients
  

Meat-based ingredients (70% of total amount): 605g

  • 515 g grass-fed goat muscle meat with ca. 20% fat content
  • 90 g goat innards consisting of liver, heart, kidney, lung, spleen mix

Plant-based ingredients (30% of total amount): 260g

  • 155 g veggies endives, carrots, fennel, pumpkin
  • 105 g millet and left over plain potatoes cooked

Garnish aka. Supplements

  • 1 sprinkle vitamin B supplement this is what we use: https://www.danuwa.eu/produkt/vitamin-b-komplex/ (2 capsules per week)
  • 0.83 g sea kelp ours contains 480mg iodine
  • 1 tsp omega 3-6-9 fish oil
  • 10 g Bone Meal
  • 1 sprinkle chopped parsley optional, if you feel fancy

Instructions
 

  • Place the goat meat, innards and veggies in a roasting dish, lid closed
  • Place dish in the oven, cook ingredients at 70-90° Celsius until done (takes around 2hrs from frozen). By using this gentle method of simmering your ingredients, you ensure that most nutrients stay intact during the cooking process
  • While your roasting dish is in the oven, put millet with water in a pan, place on stovetop and cook millet until (over) done, set aside
  • Once the ingredients in your roasting dish are thoroughly cooked, take dish out of oven, combine with millet and left over plain potatoes, stir well and let cool down to room temperature. Note: do not discard of the liquid in your roasting dish. This meat and veggie juice is high in nutrients as it contains all water-soluble vitamins and liquidized fat!
  • Before serving, add the garnish aka. supplements
  • Store left-overs in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze

Notes

Cooking Tips from Chef Sky

We use one medium-sized roasting dish to cook meals for three days at a time. The night before, we put the frozen ingredients in the dish, place it in the oven, and then program it to start baking at 80° Celsius convection in time for the food to be cooked by 8 o'clock
