Paleo Fried Silverbeet Stems

Have you ever though to try this with the sometimes tough silverbeet (spinach) stems? I grew up with my father enjoying these coated in flour and fried. They really taste quite nice with a crispy texture. You could add any kind of spice to the coating.
Silverbeet stems, depending on how old they are if they are tough try to strip the stringy bits off first, by running a peeler along it to remove the first tough layer.
