silverbeet recipe

Postby robndog » Sun Jan 11, 2009 5:29 pm

just about to cook another meal for my lovely lady ,which i always try and include something from my vegie garden ,still eating those ball zucchini ,lovely , i have enough beans from my one plant for her and also have silverbeet which i normally put roughly seven leaves together ,slice about 50mm wide and attempt to keep those in an organised roll (should use a tooth pic)then plain old steam .just wondering if anyone has some simple little twist to add to cooking/ presenting that makes her feel that i have made an effort ,regards ,robndog .

you can use silverbeet in a spinach pie.- 3 eggs, cup cheese, onion, cup cooked rice,salt, pepper,nutmeg, silverbeet and 1/2 cup cream in a pastry.

I usually just steam my silverbeet too but top with either some toasted sesame seeds, or some crumbled feta cheese, or some finely sliced red chili (great colour contrast). Easy but adds some extra dimension to the dish.

Lay a few pieces of silverbeet leaves (with hard the white centres removed) on a piece of al foil. Evenly spread meatloaf mix on the leaves. Roll it all up tight and neatly and place in a baking tin, bake for 30 - 40 mins. When serving, cut the roll into 2 inch size pieces (remove al foil). Serve hot with a nice sauce and other veges.

This thread should be in the recipes section of the "Fruit and Produce" forum... :D

mmm they all look good.

If you add lemon juice it changes the flavour completely!

An Islander guy gave me a recipe once but I lost it - it had coconut milk and chilli in it.

My wife makes an awesome Spinach (Silverbeet...whatever... :) ) and ricotta pie. I'll see if I can muster up the recipe.

Last night, for the first time ever, we cooked it up on the BBQ, which I enjoyed much more than plain old steamed silverbeet.

Yeah thats my mums specialty - she does it with a bit of fetta and also some pine nuts and sometimes brown rice.

I rekon beetroot leaves are superior to silverbeet and make a great spanikopita

I absolutely love my silverbeet lightly sauteed in a pan with onion, mushroom and garlic. A little good quality balsamic vinegar and olive oil drizzled over while it wilts in the pan, and you're set.

I love silverbeet fritters!
Cook silverbeet and diced onion together. When cold add salt & pepper and squish in shredded cheese with your hands.
A little oil in a non stick pan nice and hot and add your fritters. They will be a bit messy but taste delish!

Also, I add a touch of oyster sauce to ordinary steamed silverbeet. It gives it a depth of taste.
