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;

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.
