This is a coastal plant that I think you should become very familiar with as it is simply delicious. The Sea Beet or Wild Spinach also known as the Sea Spinach is a distant relative of the many foods that are cultivated today including Chard and Sugar Beet. The Sea Beet is a very common species of plant that lives around our coasts. It can be found all around the UK coastline and can be found living on the upper beach. The plant is extremely common and it amazes me why it isn’t used more often in the kitchen, the plant isn’t a relative of the Spinach that we consume so readily today but in my eyes it is a far superior alternative that offers everything that cultivated Spinach does not.
