Ingredients

  • 100g butter
  • 140g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 small bunch flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • zest 2 lemons
  • 3 tbsp olive oil, for frying
  • 400g kale, shredded, stalks removed
  • 400g large-leaf spinach, washed

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over a medium heat until it turns a nut-brown colour. Add the breadcrumbs and garlic, then fry, stirring, until golden. Add the parsley and lemon zest. Season with a little salt, then tip onto a piece of kitchen paper and let cool.

  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat, then cook the kale until just softened – add a splash of water if it starts to stick. Add the spinach, then cook for 3-4 mins. Drain any excess water from the pan, then season with sea salt and black pepper. Spoon into a serving dish, top with the breadcrumb mixture and serve.
