Do you have to steam silverbeet before cooking it?

Home More advice Food & Dining

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.
