Silverbeet with potato


You'll need

1 large bunch of silverbeet, washed 300 ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve 200 gm jamón or bacon (optional), coarsely torn 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 500 gm Dutch cream or nicola potatoes, coarsely chopped 500 ml (2 cups) vegetable or legume stock

Method

  • 01
  • Separate silverbeet stems from leaves, slicing the stems into 2cm-wide pieces widthways. Slice leaves into wide ribbons.
  • 02
  • Warm olive oil in a large wide saucepan, add jamón, garlic and silverbeet stems and cook over low heat until silverbeet starts to soften (5-10 minutes). Add potato, stirring to cover with oil, then add legume stock. Season to taste with sea salt and cook until stock is nearly evaporated and potatoes are almost cooked (35-40 minutes), then add silverbeet leaves and increase heat to low-medium. Stir until silverbeet wilts (1-2 minutes), then season to taste, drizzle with olive oil and serve immediately.

Drink Suggestion

It’s hard to match the chlorophyll in the silverbeet but the 2004 Best’s Pinot Meunier, Great Western, Victoria, is a delightful partner. You could also try a Cru Beaujolais.
