As requested here is the recipe for Mint and Lime Yoghurt and Garlic Sautéed Silver beat, featured with lightly spiced butter chicken and brown rice and red quinoa. Perfect sides to accompany any curry.

I used Sun Rise’s Brown Rice and Red Quinoa mix and followed the recipe on the back of the packet. Be sure to rinse your quinoa and brown rice before cooking as this removes some of the bitterness and starch.

Mint and Lime Yoghurt

5 fresh mint leaves, finely sliced
1 lime zest and juice
3 tbsp. flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
3 heaped dessert spoons of plain unsweetened yoghurt
Salt and pepper
 

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl season with salt and pepper, taste adjust seasoning.
This side sauce is great served with a spices curry, spooned over meat on salad and folded through couscous.

 

Garlic Sautéed Sliver Beat

4 large sliver beat leaves rinsed, thick slice
1 clove of garlic, fine dice
1 tbsp. olive oil
Salt and pepper
 

Heat fry pan over a medium heat, add olive oil and sauté garlic for 1- 2 minutes until garlic becomes fragrant.
Add rinsed sliver beat, cook for 3 minutes until wilted and shiny. (The water left from rinsing will steam sauté your silver beat.)

Great side dish for curry or any mid-week dinner, tasty way to incorporate greens into any meal.
