3 large handfuls cavolo nero, cabbage or Swiss chard
3 cloves garlic
freshly ground black pepper
extra virgin olive oil
1 squeeze lemon juice
Take 3 large handfuls of cavolo nero, cabbage or Swiss chard and strip the leaves off the stalks. Add 3 cloves of peeled garlic to a pan of salted water and bring to the boil, then add the cavolo. Cook until tender, then drain well in a colander and allow to cool. Squeeze out any excess water from the cavolo, mush up the garlic, season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Toss around and divide on to each of your hot crostini, drizzled with more olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
