Olive oil

Heat olive oil in a large pot and add the first 5 ingredients and cook gently until the vegetables are soft. Add the chopped tomatoes, cooked chickpeas, chilli, stock and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 20 minutes; add cavolo nero and more stock or water if necessary and simmer another 10 minutes then serve. Nice with grated parmesan on top and warm crusty garlic bread on the side.

It's fun and challenging to cook with what's available and the produce is so much fresher than anywhere else. Our family loves Ooooby!
