    Stanley Tucci’s Tangled greens

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 6


    2 tbsp olive oil

    3-4 garlic cloves, sliced

    2-3 red chillies, finely sliced

    450g greens (such as cavolo nero or chard), washed, trimmed and roughly chopped, tough part of the stems removed

    extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling


    1 In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for about 2 minutes, until the garlic begins to colour. Add the greens with any residual water clinging to them. Season with salt and cook, stirring often, until they are just wilted but retain some texture – about 4-5 minutes; if using hardier greens, cover the pan for a few minutes to help them wilt. Drizzle with the extra virgin olive oil and serve at once.
