I don’t know what’s going on at the moment, but I really am going crazy for greens. My body is clearly desperate for the vitamins and minerals that these vegetables provide, because I just can’t get enough of them. And I think they are so beautiful…


  • olive oil/butter
  • courgette
  • leeks
  • spring onions
  • green beans
  • garlic
  • kale

Put some olive oil (with butter if you’re feeling excessive) in a deep frying-pan. Add slices of courgette and allow to brown slightly.

Add some chopped leek – don’t let it brown.

Add onions, beans, garlic – again don’t brown.

When you are nearly ready to eat, add the kale – just let it wilt, not overcook.

Choose proportions to suit yourself and what’s in the ‘fridge.

Enjoy as a side dish.
