Quick Braised Kale with Celeriac & Chestnuts

"Kale, often known as curly kale, is one of the tastiest vegetables grown by British farmers and it’s packed full of good-for-you nutrients. It is a brassica and part of the cabbage family.

Kale is produced in the UK from June until March and is at its most plentiful from October. It is loved by foodies for its versatility and nutritional profile. Most of the kale produced in the UK is grown by farmers in Lincolnshire.

Kale is an attractive vegetable with a deep green colour and curly leaves. Kale is really easy to use and because it’s so versatile it works well in a variety of dishes. It is usually sold in ready prepared packs and can be boiled, baked or stir fried, added to soups, casseroles and omelettes as well as sautéed. It is also great in a warm salad and is often used in Indian cuisine.

So add kale to your weekly shop and make the most of this great tasting nutritious home-grown vegetable."

Try using parsnips instead of celeriac, or pan frying diced chicken before adding the vegetables for a non-vegetarian option.

Many thanks for your comment.

I think Kale and Spinach are two sometimes under-rated 'superfoods' and it is good to try out different recipe ideas.
