Rainbow Swiss Chard

From: Markristo Farm (Certified Organic) or Holmquest Farm (Integrated Pest Management in Hudson, NY)

Cooked chard is a great stand-in for spinach. The stems can be steamed or grilled like asparagus. While Swiss Chard is naturally bitter, cooking mellows the flavor. Unless the stems are tender, remove them and just prepare the leaves. Youcan prepare chard in a jiffy by sautéing it in olive oil with some garlic—toss in some chili for a little zip. More info
