Kale is a great vegetable, we grow it in our garden along with courgettes and beans. We love Fried Kale and Pine Nuts and Chilli as a side dish with roast dinner. This year we’ve had a bumper crop, despite having to fight off the pigeons!. We’ve only a small garden, so the flowers take a bit of a back seat so that we can have courgettes, beans and kale through the summer. Sadly our spinach didn’t take off this year, but we’ll try again next summer. In the meantime, we love Fried Kale with Pine Nuts and Chilli. Do increase the amount of chilli if you like a bit more spice, we tend to go light on the chilli.
We also love courgette – and the plants have produced a huge crop. We’ve gone for Courgette Cake and Courgette Fritters to use the courgettes in a different way. For a standard dinner vegetable we like it with slices of garlic. If you fancy a courgette recipe take a look here.
