Kale Raab with Lemon and Butter

One bunch of green kale raab, against a background of Nash boxes

This simple recipe is a perfect side dish to any spring meal.

1 bunch kale raab, stalks and leaflets
1 tablespoon butter
Juice from half a lemon
Splash of white wine or sherry

Melt butter in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Cut the very ends off the raab and rinse well. Then, add the whole lot (still wet) to the pan. The kale should be moist enough for the sauté, but don’t hesitate to add a splash of water or chicken broth if the pan starts to dry. Sauté over medium-high heat for a few minutes, until the leaves wilt and the stems are fork tender.

Add the lemon juice and a splash of wine. Sauté the kale for a moment longer, and serve while still hot.
