A few days ago, while I was shopping at my favourite grocery store in Switzerland, I saw a packet of vegetables I had never seen. Once I read the name on the label (agretti, monk’s beard, mönksbart) I realised those were the vegetables I’ve been hearing everyone talking about lately. These green shoots grow in Italy, from Central Italy to the South, but I have to admit that they are not so common in the area where I’m from (North-east of Italy). So I didn’t pass up the chance to buy them and to prepare this savoury cake, after consulting Marinella who is the expert when it comes to Southern Italian recipes. Hope you find the Agretti at your local market ’cause they are really delicious and especially super healthy!

Even this week at Ca’ Cucina you can find a lot of fresh vegetables delivered directly from Italy: red and yellow peppers, San Marzano and cherry tomatoes, striated violet eggplants and much more… including juicy fruit.
We decided to prepared a recipe with striated eggplants, as they have a sweeter and less spongy flesh and a thinner skin than the conventional purple ones.
You can decide not to cook this week and to take advantage of Ca’ Tavola Calda or Take Away to taste these fresh vegetables ready to be served to your family or ready to be eaten at the restaurant.
