They say that silverbeets are easy to grow. Yes, they do grow so well and it’s not easy to keep up eating them. How do you cook silverbeets? Stir-frying, adding to soup, simply steaming, mixing with feta for a pie, etc. Here is one Asian recipe for you to try.
Silverbeet Leaves 200g
Garlic 1 clove *grated
Salt 1/4 teaspoon
Sesame Oil 1 tablespoon
Toasted Sesame Seeds 1 tablespoon
Soy Sauce 1/4 teaspoon *optional
- Remove thick hard stems from Silverbeet. Cut the leaves roughly.
- Boil a kettle of water. Place the leaves in a colander or a large strainer, and pour the boiled hot water carefully over the leaves evenly. Alternatively you can steam the leaves.
- Pour cold water over to stop cooking further, drain and squeeze to remove excess water.
- Place the leaves and other ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Soy Sauce is optional for a hint of Japanese flavour.
