Secret Recipe #2: Sweet Kidneys with Rice for 4

This is a great midweek supper as it's quick, easy & cheap. It works equally well if you substitute lambs liver or heart instead of the kidneys. Just pick the nutrient you'd like a boost of:

Lamb Liver:
Rich in vitamin D & provides essential fatty acids helping to maintain the immune system.

Lamb Heart:
Rich in vitamins A, C, D, E and K. Provides essential fatty acids helping to maintain the cardiovascular and immune systems. Rich in minerals such as iron, manganese, potassium and selenium.

Lamb Kidney:
Rich in B vitamins which support energy production. Vitamin B2 is also required for red blood cell formation and respiration, antibody production. Aids in regulating thyroid activity.

Sweet Lambs Kidneys/Liver/Heart with Rice
1 small red onion, finely chopped
500grams lamb kidneys, liver or heart, sliced
2 small sweet apples, cored & finely chopped
2 handfuls sultanas (if you like it sweet)
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tsp mixed herbs
1.5 tsp green peppercorns
1 litre lamb stock
1tbsp sunflower oil
4 good handfuls basmati rice

Fry off the onions in oil, over a med-high heat, until transparent then add the meat & brown. Next add the rice and stir. Throw in the apples & sultanas and stir again. Add the stock, tomato puree, herbs & peppercorns and stir well, then lower the heat and stir occasionally until the liquid is reduced and the rice is cooked. Eat while there's still a little liquid left (about 1tsp) in the bottom of the pan as this will make it deliciously moist.

Thanks again to Mother's secret recipe brain :-)
