Delicious? Absolutely! This recipe makes for the perfect starter dish for lovers of good food and it is also really easy to create.
This being the first time I had tried these little beauties from Riverford, I was well impressed with the outcome, such a delicate and graceful way to enjoy veg, just sorry I didn’t get to it sooner!
Nice one Guy 🙂

The best way to eat this vegetable is to pull off a leaf at a time, dip it in the sauce then gently glide your teeth from the top of the leaf to the bottom and slide out the ‘meaty’ bit! I loved trying them without the sauce first to appreciate both ways. Once you have finished each leaf pile them up and repeat until you get down to the flowery part. Satisfyingly delightful and very tasty!
