Often used in Mediterranean cooking, this colorful leafy veggie is full of nutritious goodness and is considered one of the healthiest vegetables available. Organic chard rainbow has colorful leaves and bright colored stems that are loaded with excellent amounts of minerals and vitamins beneficial to good health maintenance.
There are many ways to prepare the veggie; prepare the leaves like you would to spinach, and the stalks in a similar manner to asparagus. Cook and serve both parts of the veggie together or separately like two different veggies. However the leaves do need to be cooked a little longer than spinach leaves would require. Young leaves can also be used in salads.
Serve chard steamed, braised or sautéed. It can also be used in stews, soups, stir-fries and casseroles.
