How to prepare
Classically sautéed with garlic and chilli, mixed with a dash of cream and tossed through pasta with plenty of Parmesan on top. Good as a side green or added to dishes in place of spinach or kale. You can use both the leaves and stalks, but add tougher stalks first to give them a head start.
Keep in the fridge and eat within a day or two.
