I can't always find something delicious to do with my kale or black cabbage, but now I have a go-to appetiser dish that makes everyone happy, and best...
This dish brings lots of memories back for many Italians - a recipe typically made during the winter holiday time, it's a great way to get your green veggies and Vitamin K. Chock-full of potassium, calcium and Vitamin C, this wonderfully yielding ingredient can add loads of depth and flavor to stew, soups, and other wintery dishes.
When you add new elements, like cooked Cannellini beans or crispy cubes of Italian Pancetta as our Chef pal has done in our presentation to the right, you add not only flavor and aroma, but extra nutritional value components as well. Make your antipasto all the tastier with your own special additions to this classic Italian recipe.
A true Italian comfort food, this crostini dish is as easy as slicing bread and sautéeing greens - a huge pay-off for a few small prepping steps. What's not to love about this simple, straightforward recipe?!
for 4 servings
Wash the cabbage leaves in tepid water. Bring a pot of water to boil, add salt and the cabbage. Let it boil for thirty minutes.
Lift out the cabbage with a slotted spoon and cool it off in ample cold water, but keep the hot cooking water. When the cabbage is cool, dry off all water.
Toast 4-6 bread slices (we recommend using somewhat stale, rustic or country-style bread) and rub each slice with the garlic clove (whole clove garlic, with thin peel left on), then cover with the cabbage and baste with the hot cooking water. Add salt, pepper and oil.
Serve promptly, at room temperature.
A note regarding Black Cabbage Crostini: if you wish to bump up the flavors and nutritional profile, our chefs recommend adding a serving of cooked Cannellini beans to the cavolo nero filling, or topping prepared crostini with a handful of crispy pan-fried Italian pancetta cubes.
