My garden is alive with lots of delicious greens we love picking fresh for our daily meals. One of my favorites is Swiss chard. I love it so much, we planted a whole pack of seeds. And then I was worried it would take too long and bought some plants from the local nursery. Today I was looking for some easy swiss chard recipes, so we can enjoy these yummy greens without getting bored.
So, I turned to my blogger friends who love to create recipes and asked for their favorites. I’ll share them with you in just a minute. But first, here’s how I’ve used this yummy green in my cooking:
added it to fresh salads
sauteed it with olive oil and garlic (YUM! we had this one today!)
used it as a green addition to soups
we even added it to our green smoothies
Today I made sauteed garlic and swiss chard with sunnyside-up organic eggs for lunch. So simple, yet so filling (and healthy)!
