Remove the stalks from the leaves or leave the stalks on the leaves for more fibre in the vegetables.
Halve and peel the shallots and garlic clove. Both ingredients are easier to peel halved! and cut finely into cubes. Please use a sharp knife and do not chop the ingredients.
Cut the peeled and halved onion into fine cubes.
Cut the peeled garlic into fine litters. Do not press the garlic, it will become bitter in taste.
Sweat the prepared garlic and onion cubes in a large pot or in a high pan with the butter for a few minutes until translucent.

Add the cream and bring to the boil once. Flavour with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and nutmeg and leave to stand next to the stove without lid.
