Tuscan cabbage recipe with a Jamaican twist

Here is a Tuscan cabbage recipe with a touch of the Jamaican style of cooking.

Tuscan Cabbage recipe

This type of cabbage isn’t Jamaican but by adding some Jamaican seasoning will give it that Jamaican flavour.

Tuscan cabbage, also known as Canvolo Nero or black kale, is very healthy and has a very nice taste.

It is very easy to cook and it absorbs flavour very well. Make sure to wash thoroughly before you cook it. 

The recipe below is similar to the Jamaican stream cabbage. The ingredients used are practically the same and the method is a bit similar.

Prepare the same way I would when cooking white cabbage.
