Braised Silver beet with Yalla Tahini and Yalla Capsicum Salsa on top:
1 x large bunch of silverbeet
1 x 240g Yalla Tahini
1 x 240g Yalla Capsicum salsa
50ml olive oil
1 x small onion finely chopped
1 x clove of garlic sliced
1 x Juice of one lemon
150ml white wine
100ml Vegetable or Chicken Stock
Hand full of toasted walnuts (Or pine nuts)
Salt and pepper
Heat oven to 180oC
Wash silverbeet thoroughly. Cut out the stems. Shred the leaves roughly.
Scoop out Yalla Tahini into a bowl and thin with a little water to make a sauce like texture.
Spread walnuts over a baking tray, drizzle some olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt put in the oven for 10 minutes (Pine nuts need to be taken out when they start to brown)
Heat oil in a large frying pan and sauté onion and garlic until they start to soften.
Add the silverbeet, lemon juice, wine, water and seasoning. Cover and cook for 20 minutes on low heat. Near the end of cooking time remove the lid, and increase the heat slightly to evaporate some of the braising liquid.
Serve cooked into you favourite large bowl. Pour the tahini over the silverbeet, top the dish off with the Yalla Capsicum salsa, and toasted nuts. Serves 4 - 6
