Jerry reminded me that the green leaves of white sprouting broccoli were good for you, I remember my mother, or the tall thin dinner lady during my strict lunch hour at primary school saying to me "Eat your greens and you will grow up big and strong" I DID.
I have removed from the plot some white sprouting broccoli that had started to seed. I used the leaves to make this recipe.
The forecast was for cold weather again so I posted this for anyone that might be doing a similar thing.
Hot way of cooking Leafy green veg Good for crunchy cabbage, kale, Brussels sprout tops and of course the leaves of broccoli
1 medium sized cabbage, shredded
15ml/1tbsp groundnut oil
5ml/1tsp grated fresh root ginger
2 garlic cloves, grated
6 spring onions and stalk, finely chopped
2 red chillies, seeded and finely sliced
Salt and pepper
Heat the oil in a large pan, as it heats stir in the ginger and garlic.
Add the shallots, as the pan gets hotter add the chillies, add greens, then toss them all together.
Cover the pan and reduce the heat to create steam, cook and shaking the pan occasionally for about 3mins
Remove the lid and increase the heat to dry off some of the steam, season and serve immediately.
