Facts:A member of the brassica family along with kale, cavolo nero is a popular ingredient in many classic Italian meals from soups to vegetable dishes. The good news is that British grown cavolo nero is now available in the UK! It is a great source of lutein, vitamins K, A and C as well as significant amounts of manganese, copper, fibre, calcium, iron and the B vitamins.
Storage:best stored in a container in the fridge
Preparation & Cooking: It can be used as a substitute in all recipes that require cabbage but it is particularly good in soups - yum. The classic Tuscan soup, ribolitta, is traditionally left to sit for a day before serving to allow it to thicken and all the flavours to develop.
Why not try it simply fried in olive oil with garlic and chillies - it's delicious, you'll be hooked!
