    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes

    Serves: 4


    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 tbsp salted butter, plus extra for spreading
    200g cavolo nero, stalks cut out and discarded, roughly chopped
    400g Waitrose mixed exotic mushrooms
    1 tbsp thyme leaves
    3 garlic cloves, crushed
    150g whole cooked and peeled chestnuts, halved
    ½ lemon, zest

    1. Put the oil and butter in a large non-stick pan and place over a high heat. When sizzling, add the cavolo nero, mushrooms and thyme and fry for 5-6 minutes, stirring, until the leaves have wilted and the mushrooms are golden.
