Nothing is more warming and nourishing than a Sunday Roast. In the oven, right now, I have a beautiful joint of Irish Beef which I’ll roast for an hour an 17 minutes, then rest it for about 15 minutes to allow the fibres to relax and make it more juicy and tasty. Leeks, potatoes and parsnip make a perfect accompaniment and I have drizzled a bit of olive oil and a little sea salt over them. As far as nourishment, leeks are highly nourishing and are in season at the moment. They are fibre-rich with lots of vitamins and minerals and are low in calories. Leeks also add flavour, richness and aroma to any dish. Beef as most of you know is packed with protein which, as well as being an excellent muscle builder, contains collagen which helps to keep your skin youthful and wrinkle- free and iron which stops you feeling tired.
As I pass by the kitchen the smell is just delish. I can’t wait to tuck in 🙂
