  2. white stems of 8 large silver beet leaves

  3. 2 Tbs olive oil

  4. 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  5. finely chopped parsley

  6. salt and black pepper

  7. Wash the stems well and slice across into 5cm lengths. Cook in a

  8. good quantity of boiling salted water until tender. This usually

  9. takes about 10 minutes. They should be completely cooked, not

  10. crunchy. Drain and spread out to dry on paper towels or a clean
