Offal Bourguignon

This recipe by Nutritional Optimisation Masterclass superstar Camilla Caton is one you can try when you’re ready to level up your nutrient density game and go all-in with organ meats to maximise your nutrient density.  

Bourguignon is stew braised in red wine, typically flavoured with carrots, onions, and garlic, and garnished with onions, mushrooms, and bacon. In the spirit of not letting anything go to waste, Camilla’s New Zealand twist on this traditional French dish uses lamb liver, lungs, heart and testes, which provides heaps of lean protein along with bucket loads of vitamins A, C, B2, B5, B12, folate, copper, iron, selenium and zinc.  

The other ingredients (including red wine, bacon, mushrooms, stock, carrots, parsley, mushrooms and stock) round out the flavour and nutrient profile of this robust and nutritious stew.  

You can definitely skip your multivitamin if you have this for dinner!
