Spinach, Like You Have Never Had

Total Time

My good friend Bev cooked this one day at a friends place. She had never been a spinach fan. Whole new way to look at the old "silver beet" which is a brother to the more insipid English spinach. Can be a breakfast dish with a few eggs, luncheon with a sprinkle of cheese, or side dish. Anything a little different is nice for a change :)

  1. Shred the green leaves from the white stem, and wash both thoroughly, drain.
  2. In a frypan with a little olive oil, fry some chopped onion, garlic and bacon (capsicum optional). When limp add a dash of pepper and curry powder.
  3. Chop the stems and add them to the mix, cook a few minutes, stirring.
  4. Add the shredded leaves and stir, cover and steam 2 mins, or until done the way you like it.
  5. (There should be enough water on the leaves to steam effectively, but you can add some if you have too.).
