A leafy green vegetable that is related to cabbage and broccoli. I am so glad this vegetable has become popular in Australia in recent years. It’s so healthy, versatile and has an exquisite taste and texture. In Brazil it is often shredded very finely and pan-fried with onions and garlic, and sometimes toasted cassava flour is added to make a crumb. It is one of the accompaniments of our national Feijoada Pork and Black Bean stew. It is also great in salads and soups. Available from selected supermarkets and grocery stores*.

*Availability in Australia, please check your own country’s online stores, supermarkets or South American Grocers for Brazilian ingredients.
