Silver beet, Rainbow Beet or Swiss Chard are all classed as silver beet. Silver Beet is similar to spinach but stronger in flavour. Although young leaves can be used in a salad it is usually eaten cooked. Finely chopped or pureed it makes a good base for many other dishes. Silver Beet cooks quickly and if using the stems as well as the leaves it is a good idea to separate and put the stems in a few minutes before the leaves as they take a little longer to cook.
Silver Beet is a good source of vitamins C, A , E, B6 and K, Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper, Manganese, Zinc and Phosphorus. Also high in Thiamin and folate yet is low in calories and saturated fat and cholesterol.
