1. Finely slice the cauliflower leaves. Put a small frying pan on a medium heat and add a little butter. Swirl it round the pan to melt it, then add the cauliflower leaves. Fry, stirring, for 3-5 mins till the leaves are tender and a little browned. If they seem too dry while frying, add more butter or a splash of water.
2. Grate in a little nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Serve alongside grilled meats, fish, tempeh or tofu sausages.
