I like to chop silver beet up fine and put it into a mince Bolognese sauce. Kids won’t know it’s there if you cook it well. You could also put small raw amounts into a fruit smoothie. Add apple juice, kiwifruit, silver beet, honey to sweeten. Lovely green colour! Rather than steam cooking silver beet, […]
After cooking the silver beet and putting it on the plates we always put some mint sauce on it and found that the kids ate it that way.
My incredibly fussy eater (Miss 3 year-old at the time) LOVED these silver beet fritters. 2-3 eggs mixed with about half a cup of flour/s.r flour and approx. half a cup of milk. Whisk together to get rid of the lumps and add a couple of finely chopped silver beet leaves (stalks removed), mixture will seem […]
Young Mum has a conundrum, one many families will relate to. “We have silver beat growing all year round. It’s easy to grow, and free which is even better, but unfortunately it’s not a favourite with our young children. Can anyone help me with ways to introduce silver beat into our meals in a way […]
I like to chop up my silver beet really fine and add it to homemade meatballs or beef patties. Also boil it up and puree it with my stick mixer and a bit of margarine then freeze it in portions to add to spaghetti bolognese, lasagne mince, or pasta sauce. Sounds yum! – Oily Rag […]
Try a splash of lemon on cooked silver beet just before serving – it’s delicious.
Silver Beet is our favourite vegetable. Wash well, chop very roughly and steam. Do not boil or overcook. Add a sprinkle of sugar and a sprinkle of nutmeg. Delicious.
Here’s a use for spinach (which could also be used for silver beet). “Chop the stuff up finely as if it is parsley and sprinkle it in everything…muffins with cheese, quiche type recipes, sprinkle on spuds, add loads to salad, add to soups, casseroles. The flavour is negligible but that iron goodness is incorporated into […]

I grow silver beet – however don’t always eat it all. I also had a problem with the plants going to seed as I didn’t pick it fast enough. Now I just pick and chop up and freezing in bags works nicely. Bags can also be reused. When I cook I just put the frozen […]
