Cavolo Nero isn’t all that easy to come by here in the UK but I happened to find some the other day in my neighbours garden. As they were on holiday in a sunny location, I decided they wouldn’t mind if I helped myself. So I did.
Kale could be substituted but I recommend trying to find cavolo nero if you can. It is in fact and Italian kale but it has more flavour.
The fresh leaves are somewhat peppery already so I decided to add a bit more spice in the form of fresh and dried chillies. Mix that with a bit of garlic and good extra virgin olive oil and you’re singing happy tunes.
