  • 500 grams silverbeet with stalks chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 4-6 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ cup tahini (hulled)
  • salt to season

Notes from Rouba

  • You can substitute Greek yogurt for tahini
  • Keep in mind that the quality of tahini can vary with different brands so it’s best to add the water gradually.
  • Hulled or Unhulled Tahini – What’s the difference?



Step 1

Coarsely chop the silverbeet

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add chopped silverbeet. Cook until softened approximately 15-20 minutes.

When tender, but not too soft, drain.

Step 2.

Add crushed garlic, tahini, lemon, and tender silverbeet to a bowl, using a hand blender, and blend until somewhat fine but still rustic.

If the sauce is too thick, simply add some water to thin it out.
