HOME REMEDY: Sea beet

Written by Sof McVeigh
Last week I wrote about Robin Harford and his in-depth knowledge of foraging. He was kind enough to share with me his favourite foraging recipe for Tempura sea beet tips.

Sea beet is common along most stretches of coast in the UK, and is best when cooked as fresh as possible. It's tasty and rich in minerals.

Method Gather the sea-beet tips and coat them in a tempura batter you've made earlier. Heat the oil in a pan till sizzling, and pop in the coated tips. Cook through and eat immediately. They taste even better if cooked outside.

Robin is adamant that foraging is for everyone and anyone can learn how to do it safely. What he is not keen on is the food companies muscling in on the act. Some of them are employing foragers to gather foods – areas are being stripped bare with no regard for the future, and the sensitive eco structure is then irreparably damaged. So, when you next see marsh samphire or wild mushrooms on the menu in a restaurant, ask them where they got them from and how.
