Valentine’s Heart


If the romantic day should come around and there’s no-one to share it with this year, why not treat the dog to something truly special?

It’ll certainly bring you love – but perhaps not quite the kind of love you were looking for! Still, a slobbery kiss from the dog is better than nothing!

To make your dog’s Valentine dreams come true, you need to get:

· One lamb’s heart

· 1 carrot

· 1 leek

· 100g rice



1. Take the heart and cover it with boiling water in a medium-sized saucepan.  Add in the chopped carrot and leek and let it all simmer for 15 minutes.

In the meantime, cook the rice according to the instructions on the packet and allow it to cool down.

2. When the heart has finished cooking, drain off the water, and carefully slice it into thin strips. Put the cooked carrot and leek into a blender and reduce them to a thick puree.

3. Once everything has cooled down, serve the heart on a bed of rice and top with a spoonful of the vegetable puree.
