Kalettes® are served usually as an accompanying vegetable and eaten hot. Great for winter cooking, this new addition to the brassica family is very quick to cook. Steam the Kalettes® and stir in fresh herbs, garlic and pine nuts for a tasty, warm winter salad, include in easy-supper Asian-style dishes or add to one-pot casseroles. They will also make a great alternative to traditional sprouts if you want something different for Christmas lunch.
Of course the great thing about a new vegetable is discovering the fantastic range of ways it can be used. Take a look at the recipes created by development chef Mal Fry for some inspiration. Or why not send us your recipe ideas; any recipes we like will win a vegetable cook book.
