Does anyone know if green kale is a good substitute for cavolo nero?

Soft Boiled | Jan 15, 201105:09 PM

Hi All,

Does anyone know if the Carrot Common on the Danforth in Toronto carries cavolo nero at this time of year? If I can't find it then I'm thinking of substituting green kale for cavolo nero in Jamie Oliver's favourite ribollita recipe: http://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/ve....

Do you think any flavour will be lost with the substitution? Has anyone tried substituting kale for cavolo nero?

Cheers!
