Duck with pomegranate and ginger sauce, sweet potato mash, and kale (grain free, gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, nut free, low histamine, paleo)

  On special occasions my mum makes duck with orange sauce, it’s so good I used to have at least two helpings, then compare belly sizes with my sister, before having a family photo taken, this would then get shipped to the world of extended family, my puffy face on billboards, fridges, lockets the lot. Since this was one of my favourite meals I have decided to recreate it, but a low histamine version so I can still eat it and not get ill afterwards. The flavours seem to work well together, as random as they seem.

 Duck with pomegranate and ginger sauce, sweet potato mash and kale


Ingredients – duck 

  • 1 duck leg
  • 1 carrot roughly chopped
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 2 medium thick slices of whole fennel
  • half a tablespoon of coconut oil (odourless)
  • pinch of rock salt

How to make

Turn the oven to gas mark 5, then put the veg in a dish,  place the duck on top, then sprinkle on top the coconut oil and salt, then place in the oven and let cook for around 25 minutes, in the meantime make the duck sauce.

Ingredients – duck sauce

  • handful of pomegranate seeds
  • half a red onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • chunk of fresh ginger finely chopped
  • one thin ring of beetroot chopped
  • half a tablespoon of coconut oil (odourless)
  • pinch of salt

How to make

Heat the coconut oil up, then add the onions, garlic, ginger and salt and fry for around 5 minutes until the flavours start to come through, then add in the pomegranate seeds and beetroot and fry for another 5 minutes, then add roughly 1/4 cup of water and let it reduce for around 15 minutes, then put in a blender for around a minute. Then take the duck out and pour some of the duck fat into the sauce, then pour the sauce all over the duck and cook for another 35 minutes.  Serve with mashed sweet potato and boiled kale.
