Accessories you need
Sometime i use a saucepan to saute the onion and herbs then add rinsed chopped silver beet and chard with out any extra liquid, cover with lid and allow to steam itself Takes 5-7 min. (check regularly that it doesnt burn) But i find steaming in varoma keeps colour better.
Serve hot with salad, or cold as a snack lunch or in lunchbox.
