Rainbow Swiss Chard

From: Markristo Farm (Certified Organic in Hillsdale, 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. You can prepare chard in a jiffy by sautéing it in olive oil with some garlic—toss in some chili for a little zip. More info

Sautéed Swiss Chard with Garlic and Lemon
Asian Style Swiss Chard
Grilled Tomato, Mozzarella and Swiss Chard Wraps

Red Beetsred-beets

From: Markristo Farm (Certified Organic in Hillsdale, NY)

Did you know that a cup of raw beets has only 58 calories? Beets are in the same family as chard and spinach. Chop and slow roast at 350 for 1 hour. Julienne the beets and toss with oil and lemon—beautiful and tasty. Roast, sauté, steam, and more… but try not to boil! Boiling sacrifices the quality and flavor of the beet and releases an unpleasant aroma. More info

Sweet and Salty Beet Burgers
Grated Raw Beet Salad
Raw Beet “Tea” Sandwiches
Beets and Apple Salad
