Cavalo nero stir fry

It’s now the season for kale harvest. And it’s also a harvest time for kale. For this recipe I use cavalo nero stir fry (in translation it simply means black kale). I am using it in a stir fry as it’s quick and easy to cook.

Ingredients (makes about 2-3 portions)

200 grms cavalo nero (black kale)

1 medium size carrot

2-3 slices of smoked/ unsmoke bacon (fat trim away)

2-3 cloves garlic

1 tbsp of cooking oil

some black pepper for seasoning


Like most stir fry preparation is the most important as the cooking time is not long.

Slice the cavalo nero into thin slices (about 0.5cm thickness). do the same for the carrots and bacon. Then peel and chop the garlic into small pieces.


Heat the cooking oil in a fry pan or pot on a high heat till it’s hot. Add the garlic saute it till it’s fragrant and not burn. add the bacon fry it for a 1-2 minutes till the meat starts to cook.

Then add the carrots stir fry for few minutes and then add the kale. Stir fry for another 1-2 minutes. Then it’s done. Enjoy!!
