Silverbeet & Kale Vegetable Stir Fry

Silvertbeet + Kale Vege 003

My love for Kale knows no bound. Lovers of my blog know I love kale, as I am either eating it in soups or stir fries or drinking it in my smoothies.

I decided to combine Kale with Silverbeet (Swiss chard), my new found love among vegetables. I love Silverbeet (Swiss chard) for its crunchiness and strength when cooked.

“Silverbeet, also known as Swiss chard, is part of the beet family, and its large bunches of bright-green, thick leaves are packed full of vitamins, fibre and goodness. In abundance now, silverbeet has a deep earthy flavour and a wonderful bitter sweetness.”

“Swiss chard offers dietary fiber, which helps to regulate blood sugar levels during the digestive process. It also contains a wealth of vitamins C, E, and K, beta-carotene, manganese, and antioxidants.”

Here is a step by step process of how i made my delicious Silverbeet & Kale Vegetable Mix.

First i added some olive oil into the cooking pot, which i allowed to heat for about 3 minutes and then added garlic;

Silvertbeet + Kale Vege 004

Then i added 2 diced onions and cooked for 2 – 3 minutes,

Silvertbeet + Kale Vege 005

Then i added my herbs, spices and salt.

Silvertbeet + Kale Vege 006

Next, i added my already boiled and lamb and cooked for 5 minutes, so the sauce can saturate the meat.

Silvertbeet + Kale Vege 007

Next i added the already washed and cut vegetables, covered the pot to simmer aand cook for 5 minutes.

Silvertbeet + Kale Vege 010

Still can’t get my blogging mojo.

 

 

bulb_thinking_by_joanedesign-d50u5ywI know I haven’t been blogging as I ought to, which isn’t a good thing for my teeming fans out there who look forward to my blog posts.

For one reason or the other, one majorly being something quite personal, I am not really pumped up as I used to be.

I hope with my ongoing #Blogging101 course I will be able to pick up some inspirations and begin to make those healthy meals and smoothies again.

The good thing about today is that it is Friday and the weekend is right upon us, the sad thing is weekends don’t last like weekdays, they go quite fast and before we know it is Monday again !!!.

I am craving ‘Ponmo’, cowhide (skin of the cow), a delicacy which is slow cooked and then added to vegetables or stew sauce. I doubt if it has any nutritional value but it is quite sweet and yummy when left for some hours in the stew sauce. i am going just eat that this weekend and have fun.

I may share some pictures here if remember to take them as I almost finished the last one I cooked right on the cook stove.
