Silverbeet, with its large green leaves and white stalks, has an earthy flavour and is a good source of folate, fiber and vitamins. In the same family as beets, it is often thought to be similar to spinach.
Silverbeet can be used in pretty much any dish you can add spinach to. Add the young leaves raw and shredded to salads, or use them with the mature leaves in stir-fries, curries, quiches, soups and noodles.
Store both stalks and leaves in a sealed plastic bag. Or wash it and wrap it in paper towels for ultimate freshness and storage time.
Barry’s tip: Why not try seasoning the leaves and baking them in the oven for chips similar to kale chips?
