Break away each leaf from its stem using your hands.

Hold the leaf vertically by its base; then, using your other hand, cut the leaf clean away from its steam with a sharp knife.

step 3

The leaf should come away smoothly and you’ll be left only with stem. Retain and use in a vegetable stock for creating a quick risotto
