We’ve got a ton in our greenhouse with each leaf being the size of my hand and forearm.
I’ve had a look on the internet but nothing has really caught my eye apart from pide and one sort of stir fry with chickpeas in it.

  • If you simmer some pork bones and add some carrots and silverbeet to this soup, add a bit of salt sugar and chicken salt, it is an amazingly healthy soup to add to dinner entrees!

  • My husband and I loved a silverbeet omelette – made a great luncheon. Be aware that silverbeet and all leafy green vegetables are a good source of potassium too.

  • I steam them and they go straight into different salads

  • How interesting and tasty are these recipes. I love silverbeet but just have it steamed as a side. Will be trying out these ideas now though

  • We love it finely sliced and fried with a sliced onion, minced garlic and little bit of diced bacon. Fry it all together and then add in a touch of kecap mains (to suit taste) and then serve. Makes a delicious side. Can also add in finely sliced cabbage or even leek is nice too.

  • Not an answer, but we love silverbeet. Usually just steam it and have it as a side but there are some incredible recipes in here! I’ll definitely be trying some

  • We grow silverbeet and I often just steam it and eat that way, or add to stir fries and soups. When we were kids, my mum used to cut off the stalks, cook them with onion and then thicken with flour and milk, making a white sauce, adding salt and pepper to taste. The green part was cooked separate, then the stalks in white sauce were poured over the top. I also add raw silverbeet to my smoothies.

  • A Saagwala curry would be great! You use quite a bit of the silverbeet (in a sub for spinach) and it is so tasty!

  • I cook my Silverbeet then drain and place in Casserole dish add Poached Eggs on top I usually try to put one for each person then ad a white Cheese Sauce, sprinkle with Grated Cheese and Bread Crumbs bake in oven till Golden on top.

  • I find that if I wash and chop it first, it freezes quite well to use in recipes later. :)

  • Wow! Thank you, everyone.
    So many different things to use it for that I never would have thought about.
    Will definitely be going through this list.

  • I use it instead of zucchini in my zucchini slice recipe – really yummy

  • I just remembered a recipe my children loved you cook your spinach and place in a casserole dish then put four to six poached eggs on top depending how big you dish is then I add a white cheese sauce sprinkle with grated cheese and bake until golden.

  • We like our spinach in a quiche with bacon

  • Finely slice silver beet. Mix with cooked brown rice, grated cheese and a couple of beaten eggs. Pour in baking tray and cook 15-20 mins at 200*C or til browned on top and hot
