Swiss chard is in the share this week. I am visiting gardens for my non-profit’s Kitchen Garden tour this summer. Chard is one of the vegetables that many people grow. I grow it as well so that I can enjoy it more often than the CSA shares. The chard in our share is from the greenhouses in Albuquerque at Los Poblanos Organics.
I usually cook my chard with the stems removed. It makes a great addition to pasta, including macaroni and cheese. Here is a quick recipe from my lunch with chard yesterday. I have also listed the other items I plan to cook this week.
