About

Beautifully sweet and tender summer greens, grown on our farm in France. They need only the briefest cooking: blanche, fry or steam, and dress in anything from a simple touch of butter to garlic and soy sauce. They will also add a welcome flash of green to risottos and stir-fries.

I can eat mountains of them on their own, but they're even better with butter and a squeeze of lemon
- Guy Singh-Watson, Riverford founder

How to prepare

Roll the leaves together and slice into ribbons. Don't discard the stems - just slice them more thinly than the green parts; they are actually sweeter than the leaf. Boil, fry or steam for just a few minutes, until tender. Dress with butter and lemon for a simple side, or mix with olive oil, chilli flakes and Parmesan for a quick, flavourful weeknight pasta.

Storage

Short shelf life so cook as soon as possible.
