Silverbeet is a great vegetable that has many cooking applications and is part of many tasty recipes.
The potatoes make it hearty and filling but you can use any combo of other vegetables - whatever is in the fridge!

This is a great curry with chicken, potatoes, Indian spices, tomatoes, silverbeet and yogurt. Serve it over basmati rice.

Tasty, nutritious, warming and cheap. An interesting blend of spices gives this soup a unique 'Morroccan' type of flavour. I like to cook this in a large, heavy based, cast iron pot.
This is a sophisticated dish, combining pasta with a stir-fry of creamy white scallops and vibrant green vegetables. The scallops are low in fat and rich in vitamin B12 and many minerals. By cooking the vegetables briefly in very little liquid they retain all their nutrients.
