One Planet Plate is a restaurant campaign to put sustainability on the menu, raising awareness of the environmental impact of the production and consumption of food. The initiative from Food Made Good invites diners and chefs worldwide to make every meal served as sustainable as possible.
We’re calling on you to join the collective movement and vote with your fork. We've joined chefs across the UK and contributed a recipe by Oliver Gladwin for Rolled Stuffed Rabbit Saddle, a seasonal English dish using foraged and local Sussex produce that has a low carbon footprint.

Oliver Gladwin's Rolled Stuffed Rabbit Saddle to share
with 3 cornered garlic, lardons, celeriac, beetroot pickled onions, mustard and madeira jus
10 rabbit saddle, deboned with the bellys
800g of lean pork mince
50ml of egg whites
50ml of cream
2 garlic cloves, grated
1 bunch tarragon chopped
20g white pepper
500ml of double cream
To make a purée
50 beetroot pickled onions
2lt red wine jus
Bunch of 3 cornered garlic
Bunch of chervil
Salt and vinegar fava beans
Blitz the pork mince in a mixer until smooth, then add the egg white and cream. Make sure it doesn't get too hot with the friction. When smooth, season with salt, white pepper, grated garlic and tarragon, then put into a piping bag.
Lay out the boneless saddle. Season the inside before piping a clean cork-sized amount either side of the loin. Then roll the loin with the mousse inside. Roll and ballotine in cling film, so the saddle is tight and uniform.
Then poach or steam the rabbit at 85% for 45 min. When cooked, make a small hole to drain off the liquid in the ballotine then re-clingfilm over the old clingfilm to make sure you have a uniform shape. Chill in the fridge.
Remove the cling film and roast the rabbit ballotine in lots of butter with the smoked lardons. When golden brown and hot in the middle, leave in the butter to rest.
To plate, make a ring on the plate with the celeriac purée, then add the smoked lardons and pickled beetroot onions, then the 3 cornered garlic and the fava beans for crunchy texture. Sprinkle the chervil, and then spoon the sauce in the well of the plate.
