Can someone please advise how to cook this

TheSeedCollection Response
It can be eaten raw or cooked. Steamed, fried, grated, salads, stews, soup. It's from the same family as cabbage, turnip, etc, you can use it in a similar way you would use any of these.

Great germination

Great flavour

Great flavour. Leaves can be harvested and used in stir fries or anything you would use cabbage in as the flavour is very similar.
