Sauteed Silverbeet with Bacon

Silverbeet with bacon.

Serves 2

1 tsp olive oil

125g diced bacon

1 small brown onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

350g silverbeet, washed and chopped


lemon juice, to serve

1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.

2. Add the bacon and fry until the edges are browned. The oil from the bacon should be enough to fry off the onion and garlic.

3. Add the onion and garlic and fry until soft.

4. Add the silverbeet, stir to coat it with the other ingredients and cover with a lid.

5. Leave to cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the pan is too dry, add a bit of water.

6. Season with pepper (the bacon should add enough saltiness, but if not, add some salt).

7. When the silverbeet is cooked through, remove from heat and serve with freshly squeezed lemon juice.
