Cavolo Nero (Kale), Poached Egg and Chilled Cougette Pesto Salad

Cavolo Nero (Kale), Poached Egg and Raw Cougette Pesto Salad

This recipe, for many reasons, has sparked a lot interest amongst my friends and family. It is packed with amazing vitamins, minerals, proteins and lovely essentials fats too. I was going to keep it a secret. However, nutrition and ingenuity are two of life’s main priorities so I really ought to share. After making too much of the pesto for supper one evening I added it to the salad below and was amazed by how well they compliment each other. I generally make a big batch, enough to last me a week or so.

For the salad (in this order):

Serves 1 person (just double or triple etc. for more people and add more of what you love or need there are no rules for nomads.)

1. Two handfuls of Cavolo Nero (Waitrose) 

2. Third of a pack of greek feta cheese

3. Half an avocado

4. One runny poached egg to put on top 

5. A sprinkle of flax seeds

For the Pesto:

 (you can keep this raw too it works just as well)

3 tablespoons olive oil

40g slivered almonds

50g blanched almonds

500g courgettes

10 mint leaves

8 sage leaves

1 clove garlic

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

120g grated parmesan

150ml olive oil

salt and pepper to taste


Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and cook the slivered almonds till golden and then remove from the heat.

Chop the courgettes into chunks and and simmer for 8 minutes till ‘al dente’. Remove the courgettes from water. Set the water aside for use later.

When cool pop the courgettes, parsley, mint and sage leaves, parmesan and all thealmonds into a food processor.

Process this mixture till thoroughly combined.

With motor running slowly add the 150 ml olive oil and then season with salt and pepper.

The case of Rodger is one of Misogyny in it’s purest form, not mental illness. As with many social issues perceived throughout history, ignoring the problem never made it go away. I feel like mental illness is too often used as a scapegoat to provide some semblance of meaning to the deplorable actions of monsters. This is detrimental to our already fucked up society in two ways: 1. It attempts to excuse the actions of the depraved. 2. It reinforces society’s pervasive stigmas towards individuals who suffer from these illnesses. True feminism is about empowering women to reach the status men already possess, by virtue of their existence alone. True feminism is not about the domination of one gender over another. Femenazis do not accurately preach feminism. Don’t you dare get confused. The extremism,seen in sexist displays perpetrated by feminazi’s, is mirrored by MRA’s who projected the ideologies embraced and furthered by monsters, such as Rodger. Also dude please chill, we know it’s not all men. Not all men, but some? Does that mean all those who protest against misogyny should be satisfied with the fact that it’s not everyone? That just means it could be anyone. I give you, Schrodinger’s misogynist, whereby every man is a misogynist until they prove otherwise. The outcry is against the society that backs us up against a wall and threatens us with a double edged sword. What makes it worse is if a woman voices her concerns she gets slapped in the face with this ‘not all men’ nonsense. If I thought it was all men I would have become an Amazonian warrior a long time ago. Alas, I’m nice enough not to judge all of you motherfuckers on the basis of a monsters actions and motivations. So please do not tell me something I already know. It just makes you look like an attention seeker who needs everything to be about them. It also deters attention away from the crux of the matter. So don’t. Just don’t. Stahp. I read this today and it really struck me because of reasons> “Welcome to misogyny where we get called sluts if we fuck you and shot if we don’t” I ask you all to Merely speak about this issue. Don’t let another Elliot Rodger think he can commit such injustices and get away with it, especially by blaming it all on mental illness. Rodger doesn’t deserve the fame. Everyone’s talking about Rodger but not many people are showing the slightest awareness of his misogynistic motivations and the fact that they were indeed nurtured by certain Men’s rights activists. This is a issue that must be addressed. It’s not going to disappear So you might as well be a part of the solution.
