slow-cooked “Heart on Fire” with creamed kale

This recipe for slow cooked “heart on fire” with creamed kale is from Mark Sisson’s blog (see recipe here).

It has a nice range of nutrient dense meat (heart), spices and nutrient dense vegetables.

Although heart is generally considered to be highly nutrient dense, I have been surprised at how hard it has been to find recipes that involve organ meats. The recipes that I have analysed don’t do spectacularly on the nutrient density rankings, mostly because they use not so good ingredients to mask the strong flavors which means the recipe doesn’t do so well overall nutritionally.

Chicken heart is certainly a nutrient dense meat, however it’s not vastly superior to other complete protein options such as sardines or whole eggs.

Venturing out to try heart or liver is a great option if you’re into that sort of thing, but not imperative to get good quality protein.

    I use ground heart as a ground beef replacement–much cheaper!
