I'm impressed that your 6 year old likes spinach!I've used Swiss chard maybe a dozen times. It's pretty yummy, mostly because it soaks up whatever you cook it in. It's also a lot hardier than spinach, and holds up better in soups. Have you ever had Olive Garden's soup called (I think) Zuppa Toscana? Potatoe-y and Sausage-y and absolutely delicious? It has Swiss Chard.
I've never used Swiss Chard before but I've seen it a lot lately in recipes, usually being cooked with something yummy. I'll have to try that soon.Tonight it broccoli. I love steamed broccoli.Alicia, good luck tonight! Remember to hang tough!
Our veggie tonight is peas. I've never knowingly tried Swiss Chard, but it sure is pretty to look at! Good Luck tonight Alicia! You can do it!
Anything Swiss is good. Just sayin.' (Having lived there for 2 years), but I want to know what you do with it back here in the comments! Yeah, I'm still lurking.=-)
I'm so glad you're still around Melissa! I thought to myself this morning, "Oh man, I'm trying a new vegetable and Melissa isn't even here to see it"!Loved the chard. I sauted it in a tiny bit of olive oil and then I just added a bunch of spices that looked good. So tasty, and definitly a keeper!
A lot of people around here plant Swiss Chard in their gardens, I guess it does well in cooler climates. Now that I've seen what you can do with it, I may have to plant some in my garden this year. The baked stems with cheese looks muy yummy! Thanks for posting the video link- that is a cool site I will definitely be visiting again.
Okay - it sounds like I need to give Swiss Chard a try. Thanks for the link to the recipe. I get tired of the same old green beans and brocolli all the time.
Oh, that sounds easy and good. Makes me happy to read about new veggies! La la la!
Swiss chard is yummy. My parents grew it in their garden and so I ate it in my youth, simply cooked with a dash of vinegar, butter, salt and pepper. There are so many more ways to prepare and cook it now. Kudos to you Alicia for stepping up to the plate (tee hee) and trying it.
