Growing a few plants of this easy-to-grow and long-lasting leafy vegie ensures there’s always something green and nutritious to harvest for dinner. Silverbeet is packed full of nutrients, vitamins K, B6, C and E as well as folate and iron.
Silverbeet is often called spinach but its large puckered leaves and stiff stems are more robust than the delicate leaves of true or English spinach. It is also known as Swiss chard and perpetual spinach. Silverbeet with colourful yellow, orange or red stems is known as rainbow chard. Use leaves raw in salads or use cooked leaves and stems in stir-fry, soups, omelettes and frittatas. Note: Stems are bitter, so they take longer to cook than the leaves.
