Kale and Spigarello

Before I forget tonight we had an amazing dinner which included blanching kale and spigarello broccoli. It was really simple and very delicious! We are big green eater so two bunches of kale and one bunch of spigarello fed four people. You can adjust according to pan tummy space. Greens also cook down a lot so its something like kale shrinks 25% and spigarello 50%.
