General Info 

This mild, dark green leafy veggie is sometimes called Swiss chard, and varieties with red, pink, or yellow stems are called rainbow chard.

Serving Suggestions

Freshness is key for enjoying chard’s earthy, sweet-salty flavor.

Chop and saute your chard with your favorite oil. Toss in garlic, hot pepper flakes, raisins, or pine nuts for extra flavor. Chard leaves are sturdy and hold up well when braised in a soup or stew. You can also use them as a wrap.

Cooked chard leaves can be used as a substitute for spinach in most recipes.

You can juice chard and combine with juice from beets, parsley, lime, and spicy ginger. The crunchy stalk needs a slightly longer cooking time than the leaves.

Store your unwashed chard in a plastic bag in the fridge. Wash it just before you’re ready to use it.
