The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Prep the Potatoes

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Pick the thyme leaves from their stalks and roughly chop (discard the stalks).

Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Pop them onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then scatter over the thyme.

Toss to coat, then spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Roast the Duck

Remove the confit duck legs from their packaging. Place onto a lined baking tray, skin-side up, and season with salt and pepper.

When the oven is hot, roast the potatoes on the top shelf until golden and the duck on the middle shelf, 25-35 mins. IMPORTANT: Ensure the duck is piping hot throughout.

Bring on the Carrots

Meanwhile, trim and halve the chantenay carrots lengthways (no need to peel).

After 5 mins of roasting time, add the carrots to the potato tray and toss together. Cook for the remaining time until tender, 20-30 mins. Turn halfway through.

While everything roasts, halve, peel and thinly slice the shallot. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Trim the green beans.

Bacon Green Beans Time

When 15 mins of roasting time remain, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.

Once hot, add the bacon lardons, shallot and green beans. Stir-fry until the bacon is golden, 3-4 mins, then add the garlic and cook for 1 min more. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.

Add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil. Cook until the beans are tender, 4-5 mins. Remove the pan from the heat. Transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm. 


Make the Red Wine Jus

Pour the water for the jus (see pantry for amount) into the (now empty) pan and bring to the boil on high heat. 

Stir in the red wine jus paste, then reduce the heat to medium-high. Allow the sauce to bubble and thicken, stirring regularly, 5-6 mins.

Once glossy and thickened, remove from the heat.


When everything's ready, transfer the duck to your plates and serve with the thyme roast potatoes, carrots and bacon green beans alongside.

Spoon the red wine jus over the duck to finish.
