When we have any kind of vegetable or fruit, the most important thing to do is wash well to remove any debris that may have.
We started removing the outer leaves and had to wash it under running water; Here’s what very often chop and removed the trunk; back to wash it in a container under the tap.
Chopped leaves and put in a pan with olive oil and salt over very low heat; He left by very slowly in its own juices.
When this tender and is removed from the fire, it served on a platter and a lemon squeezed over; optional also serve it with a little grated cheese, or ham, according to the taste of each.
This week we continue with vegetable recipes to purify our body after the Christmas delicacies.
