Who knew something so healthy would crop up on your Christmas dinner plates? This Cavolo Nero recipe is also so tasty, we’d happily eat it all year round!
1 very large bunch Cavolo Nero
2 tbsp of Olive Oil
1 clove Garlic
½ tsp Red Chill Flakes
2 tbsp Cranberry Sauce
½ tsp salt
1. Put a large pan, filled with water on the stove, add 2 tsp salt and bring it to the boil. As the water is coming to the boil, wash the Cavolo Nero under the cold tap and then remove the stems (you could do this with a knife or rip the stems out of the leaves
2. Put the Cavolo Nero in the boiling water & cook it for 2-3 minutes (the leaves should be tender but still have some bite). Remove the leaves from the water with tongs and lay them out on kitchen roll. Lightly pat the leaves to absorb any excess water.
3. Whilst the Cavolo Nero are drying, finely slice the garlic. Put a frying pan on the stove, add the olive oil and let it warm up. Add the sliced garlic and the chilli flakes to the pan and cook until the garlic is beginning to turn translucent. Add the Cranberry Sauce to the pan and stir it into the oil so it breaks down.
4. Turn the heat of the pan down, add the Cavolo Nero and gently fold it into the warm, flavoured oil making sure it’s well covered in flavour and warm enough to serve.
