Seasonal Recipe of the Week

Stir-fried Curly Kale
with Garlic and Chilli

Kale has become fashionable as a 'superfood' and it's nutritional value is astounding. It's packed with beta-carotene, folate and vitamin C, in fact 17 times more vitamin C than carrots and 4 times more than spinach.

Stir-frying or steaming are ideal ways to keep the nutrients.


200g curly kale
1 tbsp olive oil
1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced thinly
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper

Heat the oil in a wok until very hot, add the kale and stir-fry for around 6 minutes, add the garlic and chilli and cook for a further minute.

Season with salt and freshly ground pepper and serve.
