December 2016 Kale and Chorizo
There is still the odd brassica or two on the plot. Here's a very easy, tasty recipe for one of the best, sent in from west side plot holder A. Beattie.
Quick Kale and Chorizo
Kale from the supermarket is a poor sad thing, but cooked on the same day you pick it... now that's a superfood. Offset this virtue with cured pork.
Ingredients: kale, chorizo, garlic, rapeseed oil
1. Give the kale a good rinse to evict overwintering beasties, then strip the leaf off the stem and shred it finely.
2. Chop the chorizo up small and fry it in rapeseed oil in a big, deep pan. Add some crushed garlic. Fry a bit more then chuck the kale in. Add a splash of boiling water. Cover and simmer for about 20 mins or so.
It's as easy as that!
(A fishy alternative replaces chorizo with anchovies)
Get creative with kale. Easy peasy
