How to chiffonade
Use this for thicker green leafy vegetables, such as silverbeet, kale, spinach, and cavolo nero.
• Strip the leaves off the stalks using a knife or your fingers.
• Lay the leaves flat, on top of one another, then roll them up into a tight, cigar-like tube.

• Add to soups such as ribollita, quiches, stews, and salads.
