Monk's Beard, x 2 Bunches
Monk's Beard is a relatively unknown green. Thought to have originated from the Cappuccino Monks in Tuscany this vegetable has become popular with chefs cooking seasonal menus. Its texture is succulent and moist and its flavour is similar to chard with a slightly bitter aftertaste. It needs to be blanched or steamed and is often served as a side dish steamed and tossed in olive oil and lemon juice. Also great in potato salad, or served with spring lamb.
