Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 4-6 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 large bunch kale (500g / 1lb) sliced into ribbons
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 4 tablespoons cream
  • 2 handfuls grated parmesan 100g / 3.5oz + extra to serve


  1. Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan and cook bacon on a medium high heat until well browned.
  2. Remove bacon from the pan and add the sliced kale and garlic. Cover and cook, stirring every few minutes until the kale is wilted and deep green in colour. It will take about 5-10 minutes. If it starts to burn, add a splash of water to help generate some steam.
  3. Return bacon to the pan and add cream. Stir over the heat to warm through then remove from the heat and add the cheese.
  4. Divide between two plates and serve with extra cheese if you like.
