At my weekly Farmer’s Market visit this morning I picked up some amazing looking Rainbow Swiss Chard. Even though I may have no idea what I want to do with it yet, it was simply too gorgeous not to get, at a whopping $2 a bunch!
I have worked in restaurants that have served this nutrient rich veggie often, but I myself have never cooked with it. Here’ s to changing that!
Below is a wonderful website that provides all sorts of delicious info about this hearty green:
My plan for a simple, quick dish is to sautee the chard in a little extra virgin olive oil and throw in some pine nuts to bring out its rich flavors!
I have some tempeh on hand which I may fry up with a bit of a curry kick. Throw in some red onion, red skin potatoes and I am looking at a very colorful feast. Let’s see if there is any left for my husband!
I think paired with a robust Chianti my Friday night is looking better and better 🙂
