  • 400g kale, shredded
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 2 anchovies, chopped
  • 1 tsp golden caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar


For a vegetarian version of this dish, swap the anchovy for half a deseeded, chopped red chilli.


  1. Cook the kale in a large pan of boiling water for about 4 mins until just tender. Drain, then place the empty pan back on the heat with the oil. Sizzle the garlic and anchovy, then add the sugar and vinegar and bubble for a moment. Toss the kale back into the pan to reheat, then tip everything into a side dish.
