Description

Swiss chard is a leafy green vegetable and a member of the beet family that is packed with nutrients. It is high in magnesium, iron, potassium and vitamins A, C, K and fiber. Fresh young chard can be used raw in salads. Mature chard leaves and stalks are typically cooked or sautéed; the bitterness fades with cooking, leaving a refined flavor which is more delicate than that of cooked spinach. Once you begin eating Swiss chard, you may find you can’t live without it.  Here is a simple, yet delicious recipe: Swiss Chard with Garlic & Lemon
