We have lots of rainbow silverbeet in our little vege garden. For those in other countries, you might know of silverbeet as swiss chard. This variety is called Brighlights.
I’ve seen other gardens with pink, red, orange and yellow but ours only sprouts red, pink and the very normal white.
Silverbeet grows easily in New Zealand gardens though it is often hated by kids and grown ups alike. It can be used in place of spinach in just about any recipe.
I think it’s quite beautiful. It’s just begging to be shown off on a colourful plate of food.
