Kale Broccoli

Serves Six as a Side:

1 Large head of Brocolli, cut 

350g Curly Kale, tough stems discarded and torn 

3 tbsp of Olive Oil

3 Garlic Cloves, thinly sliced

1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds

2 tsp Chili Flakes


1/2 Cup Mint Lives Roughly Shredded


1. Boil salted water in a saucepan, and add the broccoli and blanch for 90 seconds.  Remove the broccoli with a slotted spoon and refresh with cold water and dry.  Add the kale to the boiling water, blanch for 30 seconds then drain and refresh with cold water.  Squeeze out as much water from the kale as you can with a clean kitchen towel and set aside.  

2.  Put oil into large frying or saute pan and place over high heat.  Add the garlic and cumin and fry for about two minutes, stirring a few times, until the garlic is golden.  Remove the garlic with a slotted spoon and set aside.  Add the kale to the oil and fry for 3 to 4 minutes, until the leaves are crisp.  Add in the broccoli, 1 tsp chili flakes, and 1/4 tsp of salt.  Stir for a minute, and then transfer into a large plate. Gently mix in the mint and squeeze lime juice, serve with the remaining 1 tsp chili flakes and crispy garlic on top.
