I still have lots of kale in the polytunnel, but it is now starting to “run to seed” which means it is overheating and thinking of giving up the ghost. So to make sure it re-produces, it starts to flower. If left, the plant will become tough and inedible unless steamed to an inch of its life. But the flower heads are delicious. They also add different colour to the meal as the flowers are yellow.
I also have broccoli doing the same. So into the polytunnel I went, with scissors cutting of the heads and making a quick and easy supper.
100g kale florets 200g broccoli florets 2 garlic cloves finely chopped 50g walnuts toasted or any seeds you have 200g feta cheese 2tbsp sunflower oil 3tbsp balsamic glaze Method steam the kale and broccoli for 3 minutes heat a pan, add the oil, gently fry the garlic, then add the kale and brocoli season with salt and pepper serve onto 4 plates and crumble the cheese ontop. drizzle the balsamic glaze over the top serve with crusty bread... and a glass of white wine. enjoy
