Brassicas recipes

The extensive brassica family includes green cabbage, cauliflower, chard, kale and Chinese leaf. These vegetables are characterised by a general ability to withstand a rather cold climate.

Preparation

Never over-cook brassicas or they will lose their nutrients, flavour and texture.
