Roasted Bone Marrow with Salsa Verde.

Bone marrow is widely underrated as a food stuff in the UK, but it is considered a delicacy in many countries. You can buy bone marrow from Waitrose for £1.50 for two, so you can feed two people for 75p! Excluding bread etc. But yeah. What I’m getting at is it’s cheap. Smother it on my gluten free bread with a dollop of salsa verde and you have a light lunch in about 30 minutes.

This meal is not only delicious and quick, but it’s unbelievably good for you, as bone marrow contains conjugated linoleic acid which inhibits cancer cells! So I literally cannot think of one reason why you shouldn’t eat this.

Ingredients for two:

2 bone marrows

Handful of fresh parsley

Sprinkling of herbes de provence

1 Tbsp. capers (with a little brine)

6 anchovies

1 Tsp. red wine vinegar

Olive oil

Salt & pepper

Gluten free bread (click for recipe)

Preheat oven to 200C. Place the marrows on a baking tray and sprinkle over some pepper – that’s all it needs. Cook for 18 minutes.

Whilst they’re cooking, add the rest of the ingredients (except the bread, obvs.) to a food processor and whizz. Keep adding olive oil until it’s fairly liquidy, but this is a preference!

Serve up! Scoop out some marrow onto the bread and add a bit of salsa verde for a light, healthy meal!
