Feeds – 4/6
Cooking/Preparation Time: 10 mins
1 x Pack of Cavolo Nero – Around 8 large leaves shredded around 1/2cm thick
3 x Corn on the cob – Kernels removed
2 x Packs of halloumi – Cubed
10-15 Brussels sprouts – Outer leaves removed, washed and halved
6 x Radishes – Half quartered, half finely sliced
10 x Sage leaves
1 x Chunk of Butter
2 x Big glugs of rapeseed oil
2 x Tbsp of Toasted Black sesame seeds
Start by melting the butter with the oil and add the sage leaves, halloumi and Brussels sprouts. Let them cook on a medium to high heat until both the halloumi and sprouts turn golden.
Remove the halloumi so it doesn’t overcook and put to one side. Add in the kernels of corn along with the sliced cavolo nero and black sesame seeds, giving it all a good stir in order to ensure it cooks evenly. Cook for a further 2/3 minutes.
If you’re cooking on a gas hob you should be able to cook this all within 5/6 minutes. Serve up evenly across plates and garnish with sliced radishes, crispy sage leaves and a extra sprinkle of black sesame seeds.
