I am making a vege pie and usually I use spinach in it but this time I have brought both spinach and silverbeet. I've never cooked with silverbeet before and am wondering if I should steam it first to wilt the leaves..... I will be cooking the pie at 200 Celsius for about 30 minutes. I have never had to wilt the spinach first, it's always just been fine cooking raw. The other things in the pie will be: pumpkin, kumara, broccoli, carrots, peas, and corn and it will be held together with eggs.
Sorry, I didn't see that part! Well, I read some recipes in a book(its kind of old, the book) and they mostly suggested to steam the silverbeet for 5 minutes before cooking them..but I've never cooked with silverbeet:/
You don't have to steam it first, but silverbeet is one of those greens that wilt and shrink fairly quickly during the cooking process, so you may need to add more than the recipe calls for.
