Cavolo nero, fennel seed: River Cafe Two Easy (white book) by Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers


  • 1kg cavolo nero
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 2 dried chillies
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Strip the leaves of the cavolo off the centre stem, wash.

Peel the garlic and finely slice 2 of the garlic cloves. Crush the fennel seeds, and crumble the chillies.

Cook the cavolo in boiling salted water with the whole garlic clove until tender, about 5 mins, then drain. Roughly chop it, including the garlic.

Heat 2 tabs olive oil in a thick bottomed saucepan, and add the sliced garlic, chilli and fennel seeds. Fry until brown about 2 mins.

Add the cavolo, season, and stir together briefly.

Eaten the day Francis, Tommy & Gabriel came over and stayed for bath time.
