I live this Moroccan Silverbeet with Rice. Silverbeet or Swiss Chard as it’s usually known arrives in an assortment of hues. I love the rainbow silverbeet with yellow, pink, purple and white stems – it looks extraordinary crude and cooked. Gracious, and it tastes phenomenal.
This dish is a Moroccan propelled side, with unobtrusive North African and Mediterranean zest, spotted with nuts to include a magnificent flavor and surface. Silverbeet has a heavenly gritty flavor and slight sweet beetroot notes.
This dish functions admirably with different vegetables, with fish and fish or meat – it’s an extraordinary all-rounder. I made a heavenly sheep tagine (formula coming soon) and this Moroccan Silverbeet with Rice was the ideal backup.
Cooking in stock includes a huge amount of flavor.
This dish is equivalent to a pilaf/pilau in that it’s an enhanced rice dish cooked with stock. Cooking in stock gives the rice more layers of flavor. You can utilize any sort of stock you like, vegetable, chicken, meat or on account of mine, sheep. I had some in the cooler (don’t ask me to what extent it had been there) and it worked brilliantly. Utilizing stock truly hoists the taste, so regardless of whether you simply utilize a stock 3D square, you’ll change the flavor.
In the event that you haven’t eaten Silverbeet previously, or on the off chance that you need to bring plain old rice into another taste measurement, try this out. Attempt it with my Middle Eastern Lamb Kebabs, my Turkish Lamb Kebabs with Caul Fat or even my Spanish Chicken Skewers with Fino Sherry. They share a similar flavor profiles that will work wonderfully together.

I don’t have silverbeet what would i be able to use?

Step by step instructions to make my Moroccan Silverbeet with Rice
3 tbsp olive oil
½ medium onion (finely diced)
1 pack of silverbeet (leaves expelled from stems at that point hacked)
Hold back 3-4 stems and bones finely
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
¼ cup unsalted pistachio nuts (de shelled)
¼ cup fragmented almonds
1 cup basmati rice (or long grain rice)
2 ½ cups stock
vegetable, chicken, hamburger or sheep
salt and pepper
½ cup pomegranate seeds (discretionary)
Warmth the oil in a pan over a moderate warmth – when hot include the onion and diced silverbeet stalks and fry for 3-4 minutes until relaxed.
Include the cumin, paprika and nuts and fry quickly before including the silverbeet leaves.
Let the leaves sweat for 3-4 minutes and vanish the greater part of the fluid.
Tip in the rice and mix for a moment to consolidate everything. Pour in the stock and season liberally with salt and pepper.
Heat the stock to the point of boiling, without mixing, at that point diminish the warmth to low.
Spread the dish and cook for 12-15 minutes until all the stock has dissipated and the rice is JUST starting to adhere to the container.
Expel from the warmth, remove the top and spot a perfect tea towel or solid paper towel over the container. Return the top. This will gather all the rising steam and stop it trickling once more into the rice, which would make it wet and stodgy.
Leave the rice off the warmth for 30 minutes before cushioning up with a fork.
To serve, sprinkle with new pomegranate seeds or new herbs like parsley or cilantro/coriander.
