Cavolo Nero

by Bronwen Laight


1 bunch cavolo nero
garlic, finely sliced
olive oil
salt and pepper


Remove the leaves from the fibrous stalk cavolo nero. Cook the leaves in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain well. Pour a few tbsp of oil into a pan place on a medium heat. Add the finely sliced garlic to the pan. Fry the garlic for a few seconds and then add the cavolo nero and salt and pepper. Saute for a minute or 2 and then remove from heat and serve as a side dish. *Other flavours that go well with cavolo nero which may be added to this dish are anchovies and lemon or bacon or parmesan.

"Fantastic fresh veg, which taste amazing and store better than those from the shop."
