Recipes for cavolo nero fans

We love cavolo nero (of course) and we wanted to check we weren't alone...     

So, we've been doing a spot of research and found that in the last year, one in ten of you have tried cavolo nero for the first time!* Brilliant! Welcome to the club...

As well as being high in calcium, folic acid and vitamins K, A and C and containing manganese, copper and iron, cavolo nero is also high in lutein. Lutein is a carotenoid which can help to protect the eyes from macular disease - one of the leading causes of sight loss in the UK.

It's also pretty tasty! We like to add a handful of cavolo nero to our meals and with the increase in popularity, we thought we would share some of our favourite cavolo nero recipes with you, so you can be inspired and get creative too!
