This recipe is a super food flavour high five for your mouth. That doesn't make much sense but neither does doing something 8 days a week or letting rampant kale and confusing garlic scapes go to waste because of lack of inspiration. Don't let them fall victim to a wilty death in your fridge! Thanks goes to Murray Meadows Farm for the kale that they're now selling in bulk for a great deal and The Natural Gardener for the kind gift of scapes that they dropped off to us at the office.
Outside the wind is howling and the snow is blowing with promises of (yet another) 10 cm of snow, if not more. This is the part of winter when I start to really look forward to Spring. Seed catalogues arrive, thoughts turn to garden planning and due to the winter weather the supply of fresh vegetables at the stores can be hit and miss. Getting enough veggies takes some creativity and giving previously overlooked vegetables more of a chance in our kitchens.
