1. Clean the duck breast, keep the fatty side on, don’t remove. Fat is good.

9. Mix chick pea flour, salt and water with a blender until a smooth dough forms. Add olive oil and fresh herbs. Let the dough sit for an hour and let it rise…
10. Heat a mini-pancake pan (we all have those!) and fry pancakes in olive oil.
11. If you do not have a mini-pancake pan, then use a normal frying pan, and pour pancake dough into round cookie-cutters placed directly in the pan.
12. Turn the oven to 325 degrees.
13. Cut the vegetables in slices 1/4 inch thick.
14. Place the slices one on top of the other alternating colors on a baking plate, on oven paper.
15. Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt and panko flour.
