Yield:
4 antipasto servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus 4 tablespoons
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced, plus two peeled whole cloves
  • 2 bunches cavolo nero (or kale), chopped into 1 inch ribbons
  • 4 slices country bread, 1 inch thick
  • 1/2 pound pecorino toscano

Directions

In a 12 inch to 14 inch saute pan, heat oil and garlic together until garlic starts to lightly brown. Add all the cavolo at once and stir to move garlic from the bottom. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes until cavolo is soft.

Meanwhile, grill the bread and then rub with raw garlic. Place 1 slice in each shallow bowl and top with a large spoonful of the cabbage. Drizzle with 1 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and shaved pecorino from a peeler.
