As we’re still early in our (Zone 4b) season, the UW-Sprout CSA customers will be dining on lots of greens after our week one delivery. With bountiful baskets of rainbow swiss chard in hand, we want to throw out a couple simple recipe ideas for our customers to try.
- Garlic and Onion Sautéed Chard – sauté some chard with a little garlic and let your palate do a happy dance
- Garlicky Swiss Chard with Chickpeas – for a more protein-packed chard meal
- Swiss Chard Salad with Lemon, Garlic, and Parmesan – for a raw and citrusy (but still garlicky) twist on chard
- Spicy Pickled Swiss Chard Stems – let’s not forget that rainbow swiss chard stems are fully edible, super yummy, and wonderfully colorful
Chard is an excellent source of vitamins A, K, and C, as well as magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium, vitamin E, and iron. It’s also a fantastic way to get fiber and protein. So eat up and enjoy!
