Local Produce: Delicious Winter Recipe with Kale

 

Here at F. Milford and Sons, we work hard to ensure that we get the best, locally produced, in-season fruit and vegetables delivered every day from our suppliers.

With the season’s changing and winter on its way, kale is a great addition to any diet. Packed full of nutrients and vitamins, it’s perfect for the colder months.

We have curly, Russian red and calvenero kale available, (and smooth to come later), all available to order today and delivered to your business the very next day at no extra cost.

Why not try this delicious chicken, kale and mushroom pie for dinner this winter?

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 large onion, chopped finely

3 thyme sprigs, leaves picked

2 crushed garlic cloves

350g chicken breasts, cut into small chunks

250g chestnut mushrooms, sliced

300ml chicken stock

100g crème fraîche

1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard

100g kale

2 teaspoon cornflour, mixed with 1 tablespoon cold water

375g pack of puff pastry, rolled into a circle slightly bigger than your casserole dish

1 egg yolk, to glaze

Method:

1. Heat 1/2 tablespoon olive oil over a gentle heat in a flameproof dish. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until they start to soften. Then add the thyme and garlic and stir for 1 minute. Turn up the heat and add the chicken, frying until golden but not fully cooked. Add the mushrooms and the remaining oil. Heat oven to 200c/180 fan/gas 6.
2. Add the stock, creme fraiche, mustard and kale. Season well. Add the cornflour mixture and stir until it has thickened a little.
3. Remove from the heat and cover with the puff pastry lid, pressing into the sides of the dish. Slice a ‘cross’ in the centre and glaze with the egg. Bake for 30 minutes until the pastry is puffed up and golden.
