They say that Silverbeet (Chard) is easy to grow. Yes, Silverbeet does grow so well and it’s not easy to keep up eating. How do you cook Silverbeet? Stir-frying, adding to soup, simply steaming, mixing with Fetta, etc. Here is one Asian recipe for you to try.
200g Silverbeet Leaves
1 clove Garlic *grated
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
1 tablespoon Toasted Sesame Seeds
1/4 teaspoon Soy Sauce
- Remove thick hard stems from Silverbeet and use for something else. 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 or blanch them.
- Pour cold water over to stop cooking further, drain and squeeze to remove excess water.
- Combine all other ingredients in a mixing bowl, add the leaves, and mix well.
I have tons of silver beet growing in my back yard. I will try this recipe for sure!
Thank you for your comment, Joe. Carrot that is cut into thin strips can be added. I hope you would enjoy this simple dish.
My friend Hiroko, you always have a good recipe for me, Thank you.
I am wondering who you are and where you live. It is always exciting to think of someone who live in a different country in the world cooking my recipe and enjoying it.
