Recipe Tips and Hints
- Silverbeet can be used instead of spinach but make sure you chop it finely and don’t use tough stalks.
- Red onions have a milder flavour but you can use a brown onion instead.
- Dill has an interesting flavour that is slightly aniseed. It is readily available in supermarkets but for a different flavour you can substitute chopped parsley.
