Tasty Greens!

Cabbage, kale, and spring greens are in season and cheap in winter. Here's a simple way to make them more appealing or just for a change.


  • Greens
  • A medium sized onion
  • Chopped rasher or two of bacon
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • A little butter/oil to fry


Fry onion in a large saucepan.

Add the chopped bacon pieces [quite alright if it's a bit fatty as the cooking will melt the fat and then can be strained off at the end for a healthier option].

Add a pinch of nutmeg.

Add the shredded green vegetables, put lid on the saucepan and gently cook for 15-20 mins depending on the vegetable, stirring occasionally to mix the bacon and onion in.
