Silverbeet with potato

You'll need

  • 1
  • large bunch of silverbeet, washed
  • 300 ml
  • extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve

  • 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

  • Separate silverbeet stems from leaves, slicing the stems into 2cm-wide pieces widthways. Slice leaves into wide ribbons.

  • 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.

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.
